Publisher's Summary

After his martyrdom at the hands of the Gestapo in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer continued his witness in the hearts of Christians around the world. His became a prized testimony to Christian faith and courage, read by thousands.

Now, in Life Together, we have Pastor Bonhoeffer's experience of Christian community. This story of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years reads like one of Paul's letters. It gives practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups.

The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words. Life Together is bread for all who are hungry for the real life of Christian fellowship.

©1978 Dietrich Bonhoeffer; (P)2009 christianaudio.com

    Story
    "Fantástico!!"

    Before this review, I listened to it twice and will listen again next week. This book is packed with so much Truth and Love. I found myself convicted on a few pages. Oh if the Church could lives as described in these pages, the souls we could when for the Kingdom of God. (John 13:34-35)

    Story
    "Life Together creates a desire for community"

    Today many congregations have trouble worshipping together for an hour. In Life Together Bonhoeffer awakens a desire for Christian community beyond the Lord's day and a few meetings during the week. Life Together shares a desire for a full Life Together in Christ.

    Story
    "More than we practice"
    What made the experience of listening to Life Together the most enjoyable?

    Bonhoeffer demonstrates for me how our life together as "fellowship" and "church" is so different than the richness of what it could and can be.


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the things about "Life Together" are particular to communal life, but the principles have a much broader application.

    Story
    "Some great thoughts from an inspiring Christian"

    Some interesting and simple thoughts by Bonhoeffer. There were some good nuggets in this short book about alien righteousness, the Psalms and how in them we find the praying Christ, and meditation. This work has really encouraged me to start again a morning devotional/time set a part for reading the word, singing, and prayer. He also had some interesting thoughts on singing and the idea of unity singing as a congregation. I fully agreed with him on the idea that our singing can turn into a work of self glorifying (my term) of sorts and that if we simply sing in unity it can be a form of corporate prayer.

    I'll have to read this one again, maybe next year, to get more out of it as simple as it was. There were also some very good ideas for evening devotionals as a family.

    "Authentic Relationships"

    This book changed the way I view relationships and has helped me to see the deep value of close-Christian friends. 'Life Together' is packed with punch, theological rigour and yet easily readable!

    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic author and subject. It is rather dense and might be better read than listened to.

    Story
    "Biblically profound. Profoundly biblical."

    In this audio-versioned writing/teaching/sermon, the late Dietrich Bonhoeffer's accurate and timeless interpretation of Scriptural truths and how they are practically lived out in the everyday lives of believers in Christ are worth every moment the seeker of truth will devote to listening. May God mercifully give us ears to hear, hearts to receive and enable us to humbly yield our wills to His own.

    Story
    "Audio had skips in it"

    As always with Bonhoeffer, incredible book. The narrator was also really good. However, the audio was glitchy at times, which is a real disappointment and let down. .
