    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    Alan says: "Very Moving"

    Overall

    Eric Metaxas' presentation of Bonhoeffer's life was gripping. I feel I came to know this great man and his family as the history of the German people, and the harshness of the WW-1 reparations leading to the rise of the Nazi's is told, interwoven with Bonhoeffer's story. I have been challenged to not accept cheap grace. I especially admire the Christian habits than made Bonhoeffer great; daily Bible reading and meditation, a quest for truth, and a desire to see others grow in this truth.
    I'm amazed at how he chose to leave the safety of the U.S. and U.K. and go back to Germany to do what he could to save the German people and church, and paid the ultimate price.
