After his martyrdom at the hands of the Gestapo in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer continued his witness in the hearts of Christians around the world. His Letters and Papers from Prison became a prized testimony to Christian faith and courage, read by thousands. Now in Life Together we have Pastor Bonhoeffer's experience of Christian community.
This story of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years reads like one of Paul's letters. It gives practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words. Life Together is bread for all who are hungry for the real life of Christian fellowship.
- Church Fellowship
This is useful for those who view church fellowship as an imaginary land where everyone is kind to each other without sin. This is useful for when you have someone in the church complain about church fellowship.
- Inspiring, deep study on what the church should be
Need to listen to this again and again. This is a no-nonsense description of what life within the church can look like.
- Great book, difficutl formatting
Wish the MP3s for this book could be broken up into chapters that correspond with the book. It's hard to find your place as you listen along. That said, the content is worth it and I'm not all the way thru it yet.

- Paul Michael does a credible...
Paul Michael does a credible rendition of this inspirational audiobook. His measured tones and distinctive voice make it an easy listen. Bonhoeffer, martyred in Nazi Germany in 1945, and a hero to many, is often compared to the Apostle Paul. He spent years in prison for his faith and eventually lost his life. This writing simply describes what he sees as the elements of Christian faith and practice. Aspects that are often taken for granted, such as prayer, scripture reading, praise, and family life, are set forth in a practical message from the prison cell. Bonhoeffer's thoughts combine with Michael's narration to make worthwhile listening. N.L. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
