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.

Great Biography and history of the time
Excellent. The narrator remained engaged and clear the entire book. I enjoyed The change of voice for different characters although mispronouncing Bonhoeffers name as Bonhoofer got quite irritating. The book itself was a great biography. It also provides a good backdrop for Hitlers rise and the surrounding culture and its effects on the world. I think this would make great reading for history lovers as it includes an insiders perspective into the rise of Hitlers Germany as well as a great biography of an influential theologian.

Great book, narration so-so
The text is excellent and tribute to a man of conviction. The narration, however, left much to be desired with inaccurate pronunciations of German words. I'm sure many with a smattering of German knowledge cringe at hearing the name pronounced "Bonhoofer."
