BernCaliforniaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful read - both inspiring and convicting...April 5, 2015BernCaliforniaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I must admit, I was a bit intimidated as I began to read of Bonhoeffer and his life. I knew a bit of his influence, but did not know much of the details, aside from his great influence on Christianity. I was looking forward to reading the book and learning more of this mans heroic character and life.
From the beginning, his faith seemed to be one that was grounded in the word of God and not necessarily, organized religion. He grew up in a family that did not attend church regularly, but his childhood was filled daily Bible reading and hymn singing, all of it led by Frau Bonhoeffer (his mother. Her reverence for the Scriptures was such that she read Bible stories to her children from the actual Bible tex and not from a childrens retelling.
The author takes you through each season of Bonhoeffer's life in a very conversational style, making it easy to read and digest. He uses numerous quotes and various excerpts from correspondence that help to demonstrate Bonhoeffer's character and need to act in opposition to evil.
This book was a swift read and one that was convicting in the face of the freedom we have here in the United States. I would definitely recommend this book!
