Publisher's Summary

Born into a loving family, Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) pursued a life as a pastor, teacher, theologian - and spy. He spoke out about the trouble in Germany when Adolph Hitler came to power, urging the Christian church to rescue disparaged people groups and resist Hitler’s evil empire. Accused of being a troublemaker, Dietrich continued on fearlessly in the midst of wickedness. His work as a spy in the German resistance and participation in a plot to assassinate Hitler led to imprisonment and eventual execution. But the lesson of his life story remains: "Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."

Details

It was a very good background story of one of the most prominent modern day Christian evangelicals. His life, though very short, spoke volumes of what it means to walk the talk of Christianity.

Great Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would surely recommend this audiobook. Why? As far as I am concerned it should be mandatory for all people in America and in the Free world. This book is a great history lesson as to how people can be led astray by bad leadership, and what can happen when freedom is removed. Bonhoeffer has some great spiritual writings,, but this is not one of those. This is history from a unique perspective, of someone living through WW1 and WW2 (well almost to the end of WW2)

What did you like best about this story?

It read like a history book from an insider!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The untimely death (right before freedom came) of the main character.

Any additional comments?

Great book.

"May I be like this man, O Lord" such a blessing.

this was the first book I've ever heard about Dietrich Bonhoeffer and I can say that it is honestly changed my heart my hope Is that others would find the same encouragement to live uprightly before God in the face of such opposition blessings in the name of Jesus Christ the hope of glory

Informative, a great book!


I learned of the depth of Bonhoeffer's resistance to the Nazis and the ultimate price he paid, all the while serving our Lord Jesus Christ. A great audio book, informative, enjoyable, and a very sober ending.

make a difference

We must remember that Adolf Hitler's hate and prejudice destroyed the lives of millions of people. We must not allow that to ever happen again. Great book.

Engaging and compelling

This was a compelling story with an engaging performance. Intriguing and entertaining for all ages. Bonhoeffer is an example of someone who had a deep and personal relationship with God and it was manifested through his dedication and service to his family and his church.
