This book was a borrow... and then a buy. I could not believe who engrossing this book was. I read it a chapter at a time so that I could digest the intensity of it. I was so very intrigued by the character of this one man. I have heard a lot about him and wanted to really know what kind of human being he was. I was impressed by the detail and research that was put into this masterful account of Bonhoeffer. This period of time is of interest to me and I pray there shall never be another Nazi Germany in our lifetimes. What an eyeopener... what look we get into human evil and human compassion. One of the best books I have ever read. I am so very happy to own this book.
I enjoyed learning about WWII from a unique viewpoint. Reading about Hitler rising to power from a German's point of view in the way he did was chilling. Very thought-provoking. I found it hard to put down. Highly recommend.
Bonhoeffer's biography by Metaxes is a detailed account of the struggles and growth of a man committed to serving God. The trials which were endured during this tragic time in history one can't even fathom during this age of religious and cultural freedom, but the example of courage he gives us is timeless. If you are looking to boost your conviction and learn more about Hitler's reign, this is the book for you. I think I will read it again!
