If you read one book in your whole life, make it this one. Metaxas does an excellent job of portraying the incredible life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and one cannot read this account of his life and work and remain unchanged. I've read the book twice and plan to read it many more times.

What a challenging, well written, moving and inspiring book on the life of a great man. The practical lessons are many fold. Narration is excellent.
this story is a treasure for Christians seeking a recent hero of great courage, faith and hope. it would also make an ideal punitive measure for any naive or ignorant modernist who refers to Hitler as a Christian. very well written and well performed.
I found this story of a Christian pastor fighting against the Nazis fascinating. This book provides great insight into how Christians can and should respond in the face of political and spiritual tyranny.
And the story was made even better by the reading performance. This has been one of my most enjoyable experiences with Audible, ranked right up there with the Steve Jobs biography.
A powerful story of an incredible life. If one pays attention the truths of theology pierce the story and come to life in the conflicted, thoughtful and full, though abbreviated, life of this pastor. A theologian, a German, but more importantly a Christian in the most critical sense of the word.
Fantastic book, the story was awesome. The history of how Germany fell because of one man and how the Christians of that time we're determined to see Hitler removed from his position permanently. What a incredible mind Bonhoeffer had. 👍🏻👍🏻
A compelling story about a man who lived by his convictions. A little too heavy on the theology at times for me, but realistically, I think that's simply who Bonhoeffer was: there was no separating the man from his theology.
