I am about half way through the book thus far. This should be a must read for every Christian. Bonhoeffer challenges readers with the applicable truth that GRACE is not GRACE without discipleship. Grace is not cheap but very costly. Discipleship is dependent on Grace and Grace (to be experienced in it's fullness) is dependent on discipleship. He also give one of the best commentaries on the Beattitudes I've ever heard or read. Be challenged in your walk and read the book.
great read, just as applicable to life today as it was 80 years ago. I really enjoyed Bonhoeffer's passion that was evident in the introduction, yet he remains objective in order to practice proper exegesis in the later chapters of the book.
I feel this book was God's divine Provision for me - it corrected bad doctrine I'd learned and encourages me to live a more disciplined life with my Savior, yet in the gentle and beautiful way the Holy Spirit works. Reading "The Cost of Discipleship" has been a process of enlightenment for me and one I am very thankful for.
