mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A wonderful collection from an amazing writerDecember 28, 2013mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The man who said, "A god who let us prove his existence would be an idol." and "One act of obedience is better than one hundred sermons." is a man who should be on your must read shelf. Such is Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian, dissident anti-Nazi, and founding member of the Confessing Church. His book, The Cost of Discipleship is a Christian "classic." Most notably he was a part of a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler. He was later arrested in April 1943 by the Germans and executed by hanging in April 1945 while imprisoned at a Nazi concentration camp, only 23 days before the German surrender.
The Bonhoeffer Reader by Clifford J. Green and Michael DeJonge is a wonderful collection of essential theological writings from Bonhoeffer. In one-volume, the Bonhoeffer Reader brings the best English translation to students, and provides a ready-made introduction to the thought of this critical theologian.
This book makes the perfect companion to anyone who owns The Cost of Discipleship or Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas.
The reader contains his writings from Berlin, Barcelona and New York plus his university lectures. There are some sermons as well as some essays he wrote about the third reich. There is a short chapter on ethics and the volume closes with some of his prison writings.
Yes, at over 800 pages it's a lot of work to read, but because it's a collection - it's quite easy to break it down over time.
Thank you to Fortress Press for this preview copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
