The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.

Overall this is a good book, but listening on Audible was difficult. It's a little heady so I lost track of Bonhoeffer's argument many times. You need to focus to listen to this book. My wife and I ended up getting a physical copy of the book to read to fill in the many gaps we had.
Do yourself a favor and purchase this book. This is just a great book in which Bonhoeffer breaks down the sermon on the mount in such a spectacular way. Then looks to advice on how to apply the teaching of Christ. I love Bonhoeffer because he's an "obedience" guy and so was Jesus. To be a disciple you much obey. As you look at Bonhoeffer's life you realize he truly believed this and ultimately walked it out until the day of his martyrdom. Bonhoeffer is one of my favorite people to study and read. His life story truly is remarkable.
A powerful testament of living a life conformed to Christ. Written by a man who gave all for Christ in the darkest of days so should we be more accountable to our Lord, taking all opportunity to do the Lords work in the ease of our present day.
Listen to this book in short meditations, there is a lot here to take in. The narrator is easy to fallow but because of the depth of the message I needed to go back re-listen to many parts to take it all in.
I bought many copies of the book afterward as well. I'm giving them to friends and family. I believe Christianity is watered down and practiced more like zen then death to self. This book is highly recommended for all who hunger and thirst for righteousness.
this book is a foundational read for all Christians. The first five chapters alone will reorient the modern day Evangelical 2 a more balanced truth about God's grace then I think most people are getting from the pulpit these days. This is especially true if you are in a Seeker oriented Church

This book was good but is not an easy listen. Don't plan on getting anything out of it if you have to do any other tasks while listening
very informative educational spirit given and directed God breathed a lot of biblical truths inspirational
Excellent! Must-read for Christian discipleship. Understand the difference between Cheap Grace and the Costly Grace of the Cross of Christ.
