Christian biography at its best Review by Bonnhoefer

Metaxas brilliantly draws out the essence of this man of faith and conviction. Bonhoeffer lived his life fully alive to his Lord and fully engaged in the world. His courageous example will be a constant reminder to me that we have nothing to fear in this life: that the only thing that matters is our obedience to His call.

Amazing book Review by Jon

I love the detail Metaxas goes into with this book on Bonhoeffer. Metaxas has a point of view on the events and people he describes and I appreciate hearing his take on them.

I have the printed book, but would never have gotten through it in this decade. The audio format is ideal for people like me.

Excellent Book - Must Read Review by TH

Even being from German background and knowing much of the history, this book gave me insight from a whole different perspective - that of the church - on the events of the Third Reich.

The only criticism I have is that they should have chosen a reader who is better familiar with the German language pronunciation. This way people like me could actually understand the names and places, whereas the way the book sounds it is hard to guess what the names are. That is unfortunate and a disadvantage to actually reading the book.

Life changing Review by Helen

The steady, consistent proclamation of true and real faith in Christ despite horrendous circumstances and inner turmoil sets a high standard for today's American Christians. The faithfulness and unwavering obedience to the Lord was very convicting. The audiobook is a gripping, thrilling and devastating true story. YOU MUST LISTEN!!

Inspiring book Review by Linda

This is one of the best books I've ever read. What a wonderful man Mr. Bonhoeffer was. Eric Metaxas is a wonderful writer, I'll read anything he puts out. If you want to be inspired, read this book.

Gripping in its relevance! Review by Tyler

This is the bracing account of a prophet's valiant efforts to be faithful in the midst of the death of German Christendom. He developed a theology of resistance and called the church to step in line with Christ rather than with the Third Reich. Unfortunately, many found capitulation and inaction more convenient than martyrdom. I fear the same may befall the American church except we all likewise repent of our dereliction of duty and obedience in the areas of education, charity, and family life. May the Lord not let this literary seed fall to the ground without bearing forth fruit a hundredfold in return.

Spiritually encouraging and historically insightful Review by Chaylon

Some on the left have attempted to co-opt Bonhoeffer for their own agenda. Metaxas sets all that straight. Bonhoeffer was a true man of God AND the inerrant Scriptures, unusual in his short life of integrity and devotion.

The book also provides a sympathetic view of the many in Germany in the years leading up to the war and through the ordeal who rejected Hitler's third Reich.

Finally, I found the book chilling in its parallels to our own political war here in the US where Capitalism is assailed by Socialism to the general effect of the erosion of heretofore unquestioned freedoms. Even so, we find in "Bonhoeffer" that no matter how bad things might get, our God is a very great God and the struggle is both worth it and redounds to His glory.

Great book, great man Review by Dale

the story reads like a historical thriller. What he tried to accomplish was magifigant and his love for the lord showed no bounds. Thoroughly enjoyed the book

GREAT book - must read! Review by Garry

This is an amazing biography of a great man of God! I have been very inspired by listening to this book - it's long, but well worth it. Bonhoeffer reminds us to go back to God's Word and the Cross as the essentials of Christianity. After listening I bought a hardcover to give to my dad-in-law.
