Description

Who better to face the greatest evil of the 20th century than a humble man of faith?

As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer - a pastor and author, known as much for such spiritual classics as The Cost of Discipleship and Life Together, as for his 1945 execution in a concentration camp for his part in the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

In the first major biography of Bonhoeffer in 40 years, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer's life - the theologian and the spy - to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. In a deeply moving narrative, Metaxas uses previously unavailable documents - including personal letters, detailed journal entries, and firsthand personal accounts - to reveal dimensions of Bonhoeffer's life and theology never before seen.

In Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffer's heart-wrenching 1939 decision to leave the safe haven of America for Hitler's Germany, and using extended excerpts from love letters and coded messages written to and from Bonhoeffer's Cell 92, Metaxas tells for the first time the full story of Bonhoeffer's passionate and tragic romance.

Listeners will discover fresh insights and revelations about his life-changing months at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem and about his radical position on why Christians are obliged to stand up for the Jews. Metaxas also sheds new light on Bonhoeffer's reaction to Kristallnacht, his involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in "Operation 7," the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland.

Bonhoeffer gives witness to one man's extraordinary faith and to the tortured fate of the nation he sought to deliver from the curse of Nazism. It brings the listener face to face with a man determined to do the will of God radically, courageously, and joyfully - even to the point of death. Bonhoeffer is the story of a life framed by a passion for truth and a commitment to justice on behalf of those who face implacable evil.

"Insightful and illuminating, this tome makes a powerful contribution to biography, history and theology." (Publishers Weekly)

"[A] massive and masterful new biography." (Christianity Today)

"Metaxas tells Bonhoeffer's story with passion and theological sophistication." (Wall Street Journal)

"Metaxas magnificently captures the life of theologian and anti-Nazi activist Dietrich Bonhoeffer.... A definitive Bonhoeffer biography for the 21st Century." (Kirkus)

Mandatory Reading

This is hands down one of the best biographies ever written of a preacher. It is an encouragement to the believer and the historical accuracy woven throughout is a major plus for history buffs. In addition Mr. Metaxas does a phenomenal job in pointing out Bonhoeffer's dilemma with the church and the failings of church leadership to lay hold of the bible to and grasp the truths therein as their very lives depended on it. Honest in his approach to Bonhoeffer, the author doesn't exalt the man higher than he should be, nor does he approach him with disdain. In truth, I believe this book should not only be read, but studied by layman and preacher alike. So in my opinion, yes get this book!

Disappointingly watery and worshipful

Bonhoeffer is a fascinating and timely character not just in history but in the world of faith and Christianity. Metaxas has done an admirable job incorporating fascinating research and weaving into an engaging story. I’m disappointed however that the author has approached his subject with stars in his eyes, lacking any air of objectivity. The result is a flat book about a nearly two-dimensional infallible hero, making Bonhoeffer and his acts of courage and dogged curiosity difficult to appreciate and the man himself hard to relate to at all. Bonhoeffer and his work and the decisions he faced are more relevant for us than ever, perhaps, and it’s unfortunate this does not introduce to the breathing, living, and very human hero of God that Bonhoeffer surely was.

An accurate and full picture of Bonhoeffer

Bonhoeffer’s life is one every Christian should be familiar with. His dedication to God, family, friends, and country was extraordinary. Metaxas, the author does an excellent job of painting a full picture of Bonhoeffer’s life in a way that is informative, and thought provoking. I believe this to be the very best biography written on Bonhoeffer.

Incredibly written and told

Wow! This one of the most incredible books I have read. It brings a perspective of WW2 that I personally had never thought off. Bonhoeffer was fully living in Christ, following HIs plan in full surrender.

Fantastic and engaging

Loved this look into pre WWII and this amazing man. I gave it a 4 because it got a little long in the middle.

This story was outstanding!

I was so glad that I listened to this story about Dietrich Bonhoeffer. From start to finish, I was mesmerized. You can tell the author went to great lengths to get this story right. Plus, the narrator was a cut above from the rest. His accents were believable and he always used the same kind of voice when he was Bonhoeffer, so you knew who was speaking.
