This book is quite simply one of the most profound and important books of the twentieth century. Dietrich Bonhoeffer lived his witness, and was both a thoughtful and engaging writer. He focuses on the most treasured part of Christ’s teaching—the Sermon on the Mount with its call to discipleship—and on the grace of God and the sacrifice which that demands. Viewed against the background of Nazi Germany, Bonhoeffer’s book is striking enough. At the same time, it shares with many great Christian classics a quality of timelessness, so that it has spoken, and continues to speak powerfully, to the varied concerns of the contemporary world.
