✏Bonhoeffer Book Summary : WHO BETTER TO FACE THE GREATEST EVIL OF THE 20TH CENTURY THAN A HUMBLE MAN OF FAITH? As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer—a pastor and author. In this New York Times best-selling biography, Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life—the theologian and the spy—and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffer’s heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler’s Germany, and sheds new light on Bonhoeffer’s involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in “Operation 7,” the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland. In a deeply moving narrative, Metaxas uses previously unavailable documents?including personal letters, detailed journal entries, and firsthand personal accounts?to reveal dimensions of Bonhoeffer's life and theology never before seen. "Bonhoeffer is the story of a life framed by a passion for truth and a commitment to justice on behalf of those who face implacable evil. Includes Readers’ Guide “[A] beautifully constructed biography.” —Alan Wolfe, The New Republic “Metaxas tells Bonhoeffer’s story with passion and theological sophistication. . . .” —Wall Street Journal “[A] weighty, riveting analysis of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. . . .” —Publishers Weekly “Metaxas presents Bonhoeffer as a clear-headed, deeply convicted Christian who submitted to no one and nothing except God and his Word.” —Christianity Today “Metaxas has written a book that adds a new dimension to World War II, a new understanding of how evil can seize the soul of a nation and a man of faith can confront it. . . .” —Thomas Fleming, author, The New Dealers’ War “Metaxas has created a biography of uncommon power—intelligent, moving, well researched,vividly written, and rich in implication for our own lives. Or to put it another way: Buy this book. Read it. Then buy another copy and give it to a person you love. It’s that good.” —Archbishop Charles Chaput, First Things "A definitive Bonhoeffer biography for the 21st century." —Kirkus Reviews 2011 ECPA Book of the Year 2011 Canterbury Medal by the Becket Fund recognizing courage in the defense of religious liberty 2011 Christopher Award winner highlighting the power of faith, courage, and action "A definitive Bonhoeffer biography for the 21st century." -Kirkus Reviews

✏The Cost of Discipleship Book Summary : NEW FOREWORD BY ERIC METAXAS Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century, illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus in this classic book on living as a Christian. What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the government worker? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between "cheap grace" and "costly grace." "Cheap grace," Bonhoeffer wrote, "is the grace we bestow on ourselves...grace without discipleship....Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know....It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life." The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.

✏Mysteries in the Theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Book Summary : English summary: This volume addresses key issues in recent research into Bonhoeffer's writings: cognition, culture and religion. In relation to each of these issues, Bonhoeffer's insights seem worth dealing with not only for the sake of understanding Bonhoeffer better, but also as part of theology's dealing with these issues as such today. German description: Eine kritische Konfrontation von Dietrich Bonhoeffers Theologie mit aktuellen, ihr fremden Problemstellungen. Auf unkonventionelle Art konfrontieren die Autoren dieses Bandes Dietrich Bonhoeffers Theologie mit aktuellen Themen und Fragestellungen, etwa der interkulturellen Verstandigung, der Okologie, Globalisierung, der Wiederkehr der Religion sowie der Funktion theologischer Ethik in der sakularen Gesellschaft. Da diese Probleme Bonhoeffer meist fremd waren, kommt es zu einer kritischen Relecture seines Werks und einer vorurteilsfreien Erorterung der Gegenwartsrelevanz seines Denkens. Dadurch wird eine neue, reizvoll verfremdende Perspektive auf Bonhoeffers Werk erreicht. Der fur Bonhoeffers Denken wichtige Geheimnisbegriff bundelt die einzelnen Uberlegungen.

✏Bonhoeffer Book Summary : One of the best known Christians of the twentieth century, Dietrich Bonhoeffer is admired as a theologian for his unparalleled independence of mind, creativity and brilliance by liberals and conservatives alike. His death at the hands of the Nazis is an extraordinary tale of courage and Christian discipleship. However, Bonhoeffer was also a serious theologian who, while indebted to the liberal tradition of the University of Berlin, was also influenced by the new thinking of Karl Barth that challenged the consensus. Plant has written a critical exploration of Bonhoeffer's writings that illuminates his ethical theology, showing that what linked all his work was the attempt to listen to God's word in, to, and for the secular world.
