Media Spotlight -- Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

Posted by Ginny Raffa on OP1er @ 1:09 PM

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
by Eric Metaxas
Thomas Nelson, April 2010

 

As Adolf Hitler and the Nazi's seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted the extermination of European Jews, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy is the first fully comprehensive biography of Bonhoeffer in more than 40 years. Written by best-selling NY Times author Eric Metaxas, the book presents both sides of Bonhoeffer's life, as theologian and as conspirator drawing them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil.

This deeply moving narrative uses previously unavailable documents, including personal letters, detailed journal entries, and firsthand personal accounts, as Metaxas reveals dimensions of Bonhoeffer's life and theology never before seen.

Bonhoeffer gives witness to the extraordinary faith of an incredible human being, while also illuminating the tortured fate of a nation he sought to deliver from the evil tyranny of  the Nazi party. The reader will come face to face with a man determined to do the will of God radically, courageously, and even to the point of death.
