Product Description

by Eric Metaxis

From the New York Times bestselling author of Amazing Grace, a groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the greatest heroes of the twentieth century, the man who stood up to Hitler. A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double-agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Fuhrer, and was hanged in Flossenberg concentration camp at age 39. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the 20th century. Bonhoeffer presents a profoundly orthodox Christian theologian whose faith led him to boldly confront the greatest evil of the 20th century, and uncovers never-before-revealed facts, including the story of his passionate romance.

Carolyn's Comments:
For from being just a book about history and the story of a courageous man, Bonhoeffer presents a startling parallel to the times in which we live. Perhaps because history inevitably repeats itself, we see today a slow but steady trend toward government control of all aspects of our lives including the supression of free speech, religious expression and the public acknowledgement of the superintending providence of God. Bonhoeffer's story provides a "distant mirror" and inspires us to stand up for truth today.
