This volume captures in a compelling and personal way the religious and political odyssey of one of the last century’s great religious beacons—Dietrich Bonhoeffer. His life became a symbol of Christian resistance to Hitler. His thought ushered in a new era of worldly Christianity. His personal struggle for authentic moral and religious stance became a waypoint for a distracted world. Accompanied by family photos, the dramatic life, evolving thought, and perilous times of Dietrich Bonhoeffer are sketched in this short volume, which also features short excerpts from his writing.
