Author Bio

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of the most well-known and beloved theologians of the twentieth century. Renowned for his classic works Life Together and The Cost of Discipleship, Bonhoeffer's legacy took on another dimension when he was imprisoned and executed for participating in a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

Editorial Reviews

"These Advent and Christmas reflections of Bonhoeffer flew from his prison cell, flung open the doors of hope, and sailed heavenward as heart-wrenching prayers, prayers from a condemned man, prayers from a hopeful man, prayers from a man who embodied what it means to pray 'May your kingdom come.' This will be my Advent and Christmas book." Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University, and author of The Jesus Creed and The Blue Parakeet
