Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

Author:  Eric Metaxas

A gripping book with a lot of detail to understand the milieu in which Bonhoeffer grew up and ministered.

We need to understand the plea of Bonhoeffer: the church is the body of Christ answerable to Him only, serving Him only, obedient to His Word only.

Bonhoeffer’s life as serving pastor was exemplary. He practiced what he preached in his other publication Discipleship, of which only extracts appear in Metaxa’s book.  I can’t wait to get my hands on Discipleship.

I would have liked if the author gave us a graphical timeline to understand the development of the drama better. Maps of the events in those days will not go astray either.

Highly commendable!
