Description

WINNER of the 2011 "Retailers Choice Awards" for 'Auto/Biography'!


From the New York Times bestselling author of Amazing Grace, this is a groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the greatest heroes of the twentieth century, the man who stood up to Hitler.


A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century. Bonhoeffer presents a profoundly orthodox Christian theologian whose faith led him to boldly confront the greatest evil of the twentieth century and uncovers never-before-revealed facts, including the story of his passionate romance.

A must read for all.
Eric Mataxas uses vivid vocabulary and researched events with personal accounts of family members and friends. He portrays Bonhoeffer as a unconventional, bold yet caring man. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was gripped by the events. I was unaware of Bonhoeffer's life but the author made me feel as if I was right there. Do not be concerned with the length of the book because the reader is very easy to listen to and has an accent making the listener completely present in each chapter. This should be required reading for every college student.

Just gets better and better
Bonhoeffer may not have been as evangelical as the author implies, but this book gives such a fascinating insight into the thoughts of this godly pastor, as well as the history of the time in which he lived, that I was thoroughly engaged by the listen
