addicted to reading
simply loved this book. ours a hats story, and seems like a tragedy, until you remember Boenhoffer's perspective. simply beautiful ... and wonderfully read! I truly enjoyed Malcolm Hillgartner's rendition. outstanding!
This work has changed me as a person. Metaxas makes the very best use of historical fact by using it to teach the reader how a great man like Dietrich Bonhoeffer handled life's delights and challenges. Bonhoeffer's theology is reflected throughout this work in a way that helps us make Bonhoeffer's story our own. colorful enough for the story lover and deep enough for the philosopher- I would recommend this as a book on theology as much as a historical narrative.
Hillgartner narrates impressively, including the German and Latin texts.
"Wonderful" is all I have to say. I recommend this to all my friends!
I have heard of Bonhoeffer for years but never studies much about him. I'm glad I finally has the opportunity to remedy that. One of the best books I have read in some time.
A very difficult listen. Repetitive reaffirmations of sunjects religious beliefs that seemed unending. There is clearly much more to the individual than his dedication to God. Would have been great to have an analysis on the political and not such a heavy weight on reestablishing the religous convictions.
I knew many things of Bonhoeffer and yet I knew nothing of the man. Bonhoeffer was an incredibly complex man with very deep thoughts on God and his relation to man. Yet that is not the entire story and I very much enjoyed this portrait.
The author does a great job of painting a very detailed image of not only Deitrich, but those around him and the dark world in which he lived.
Malcolm Hillgartner did a great job reading this as well. He brought life to the text.
What an interesting and extensive portrayal of Bonhoeffer, while also offering a huge lesson in history simultaneously. It was both informative and engaging, with wonderful voices by Mr. Hillgartner. I'm so glad I listened to it as my pronunciation of the German would've been terrible. I also hope to be a better person because of how Bonhoeffer lived his life.
This is one of the most valuable apps on our phones. My kids get car sick if they read. Books keep them quiet. No fighting!
While I knew how DB's life ended, I found myself hoping I was wrong. What an enormous foot print Mr. Bonhoeffer left not only on Christianity, but our world.
