Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
Dietrich Bonhoeffer paid the ultimate price for following Christ.
Bonhoeffer chronicles the life and influence of German theologian and activist Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Living in Nazi Germany, he chose to follow his convictions, even though they led him into danger and eventually death. Along the way, he encountered trials that required him to throw himself into the arms of God and follow through with what he believed to be right.
This discussion guide examines the value and cost of personal conviction for people such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and the role the church ought to have fighting social injustice. This guide also addresses difficult questions about ethics (the nature of right and wrong) and about the gray areas people face when they clash with authorities or with common public opinion.
