Good story, great narration. I chose this on a whim based on the description for the historical aspects. I did find those aspects to be very interesting, but I also found myself struggling through the sheer volume of theology. I guess I should have been more prepared for that - after all, the man was a theologian!
A different look into the Third Reich and the legacy of a brilliant, humble, selfless servant of Christ. What a difference one life can make. The author was also quite accurate in recalling the circumstances that allowed Hitler to rise to power.
I loved the book. I paints a picture of what it really takes to be a man, in spite of your circumstances. Really a great listen and is very well written! Highly recommended!
This was fantastic! The book have such insight and detail on Bonhoeffer's life. Metaxas is an exquisite writer and truly brings to life the time in which Bonhoeffer lived, the feelings he felt, and the many circumstances he faced. It is quite an extensive read, so listening to it was perfect. My highest regards for this audible.
"Bonhoeffer" is almost 23 hours of non-fiction, and I enjoyed every single minute of it.
The story, the writing, the history, the cadence.
If you have any interest in history or theology, this will make a dozen workouts or 2 dozen long commutes fly by!
I loved this book. It was well read and gives a new view on WW II from the perspective of the German people who were aghast at the Nazi crimes and the figure of Adolph Hitler.
