|From the "New York Times-"bestselling author of "Amazing Grace" comes a groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the greatest heroes of the 20th century, a man who stood up to Hitler and the monstrous evil that was Nazism. As a double-agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Fuhrer, and was hanged in Flossenberg concentration camp.|
From the Publisher:
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 Fuhrer, and was hanged in Flossenberg concentration camp at age 39. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the 20th century.||Bonhoeffer presents a profoundly orthodox Christian theologian whose faith led him to boldly confront the greatest evil of the 20th century, and uncovers never-before-revealed facts, including the story of his passionate romance.
"Eric Metaxas tells Bonhoeffer's story with passion and theological sophistication, often challenging revisionist accounts that make Bonhoeffer out to be a 'humanist' or ethicist for whom religious doctrine was easily disposable. In BONHOEFFER we meet a complex, provocative figure: an orthodox Christian who, at a grave historical moment, rejected what he called 'cheap grace'--belief without bold and sacrificial action....Mr. Metaxas reminds us that there are forms of religion--respectable, domesticated, timid--that may end up doing the devil's work for him." - Joseph Loconte 04/23/2010 "Metaxas presents a complete, accessible picture of this important figure, whose story is inspiring, instructive and international in scope....A definitive Bonhoeffer biography for the 21st century."
