Imprisoned and eventually executed for his opposition to
Hitler's regime, the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer continues to
fascinate and inspire Christians across the world. His life
epitomizes authenticity, commitment, and sacrifice. Devine writes,
“When a man willingly exposes himself to suffering and death for
his faith and for others, we take notice and with good reason.
While martyrdom neither proves nor produces a spiritual giant, the
possibility does arise, and this piques a distinctive longing
common to followers of Jesus Christ.”This book is published to
coincide with the 100th anniversary of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's birth
in 1906. It allows Bonhoeffer to speak to today's believer in the
following areas: knowing and doing the will of God, the importance
and role of the Church, the call to witness, and the role of
suffering and the path to hope.
