A great book about a great man. Very inspiring very good performance. He is a stalwart of the faith. Worth a second listen to pick up bits you may have missed during the first listening
I knew Bonhoffer to be a great man and deeply devout Christian. This book made him come alive. And it made me ask myself ask myself what I would do in his place.
Very thorough and engaging. Very interesting writing and history of Bonhoeffer's whole life, ministry, attitudes, friendships, inner struggles, and impact. I am changed by it. Must read for all people in the journey of life.
This has been one of the MOST enjoyable, heart wrenching, convicting, devastating, and spurring on for Christ sake, biographies I have read apart from the Gospel of Jesus Christ! It is evident Eric sought the Lord as he did his research and writ. So much so, I truly believe it this biography a depth and a fullness. I was SO touched, and taught not ONLY by Deitrich's example, but the Holy Spirit used his sermons and writings to speak to me a half century later. I could not stop listening. I wept deeply, for many reasons, but there's joy. My heart broke at the end of his earthly life, yet...was encouraged by the words of Jesus in Matthew 10...talk about perspective! I love the 2 Chronicles 20 end. It is one of my favorite Scriptures...
'Follow Jesus, Our Hero'
Both in my history and my spiritual lessons I have gained so much in reading this book. Worth the time and effort to read it all.
