Eric Metaxas

Eric Metaxas is the author of the New York Times bestseller Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness, and thirty children’s books. He is founder and host of Socrates in the City in New York City, where he lives with his wife and daughter. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Washington Post, Books & Culture, Christianity Today, and Marks Hill Review. He has written for VeggieTales and Rabbit Ears Productions, earning three Grammy nominations for Best Children’s Recording.

The author of a bestselling biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Metaxas reveals the haunting similarities between today’s American Church and the German Church of the 1930s. Echoing the German martyr’s prophetic call, he exhorts his fellow Christians to repent of their silence in the face of evil.

An attenuated and unbiblical "faith" based on what Bonhoeffer called "cheap grace" has sapped the spiritual vitality of millions of Americans. Paying lip service to an insipid "evangelism," they shrink from combating the evils of our time. Metaxas refutes the pernicious lie that fighting evil politicizes Christianity. As Bonhoeffer and other heroes of the faith insisted, the Church has an irreplaceable role in the culture of a nation. It is our duty to fight the powers of darkness, especially on behalf of the weak and vulnerable.

Heed the call to live out your faith---heroically and with joy! Invoking the same themes as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Metaxas purports the rejection of religiosity and promotes embracing an active faith that consumes every aspect of a person's life. Such actions will bring revival and "new birth" to a waning Christian culture. 140 pages, hardcover from Salem.
