Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Amazing Grace comes an abridged version of the groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the greatest heroes of the 20th century, the man who stood up to Hitler.
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 twentieth century and uncovers never-before-revealed facts, including the story of his passionate romance.

Thankful For This Account

I'm so glad I listened to this book. I'd only known in general of D.B. ... mostly in quotes of his. There might even be a book of his on my shelf? But I had never known the details of his life, mission, calling, story, character, resistance, theology, etc. All in the context of Nazi Germany.

Brilliant account. Well written. Worth every minute. I feel enriched and edified by this man of God's life.
