About the Author

Born in 1906 in Breslau, Germany, now part of Poland, Dietrich Bonhoeffer became a radical theologian. He was raised in a home where the intellect was honored. His father was a physician and professor of psychiatry at the University of Berlin. Such scholars as the church historian Adolph von näytä lisää Harnack, the theologian and sociohistorian Ernst Troeltsch, and Max Weber, a founder of modern sociology, were frequent guests of the Bonhoeffers. A precocious student who evidenced a degree of independence of thought that was at odds with the reverence in which his fellow students held their professors, Bonhoeffer decided early on the church and theology as his life's work. He was a product of liberal studies that were greatly influenced by Karl Barth. Bonhoeffer's doctoral dissertation, Sanctorum Communio: A Dogmatic Investigation of the Sociology of the Church, was published in 1930, at the time he was teaching theology at the University of Berlin. A year's study in the United States followed and leadership of the World Alliance of Churches, where his flair for languages and his genial disposition won him many friends. His American and British friends tried unsuccessfully to dissuade him from returning to Germany after the rise of Hitler in 1932. But Bonhoeffer returned, and joining the so-called Confessing Church of those who resisted Germanizing the church, he conducted an illegal seminary in Finkenwalde. Out of this experience came his Life Together; out of his struggles to encourage Christians to resist the Nazis came The Cost of Discipleship, his study of the Sermon on the Mount. Although Bonhoeffer escaped military duty by joining the intelligence service, he was eventually arrested and imprisoned by the Gestapo and was linked to the attempt on Hitler's life. His Letters and Papers from Prison (translated in 1953), was his testimony of faith; the writing gave the American death of God movement the term religionless Christianity. Bonhoeffer was killed in 1945 while he was in prison in Flossenburg. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

3.5 stars -- I didn't like this book as much as I thought I would, but there are still many good nuggets here.

The book is divided into only 5 chapters and is quite short. Despite this, it took me a while to get through it because there were so many parts I needed to stop and really think about. (Also, the older-English writing with thee's and thou's tossed in made it a bit wordy.) I did feel that the writing sometimes seemed a bit repetitive and could have been edited more.

I really liked chapters 1, 4, and 5 ("Community," "Ministry," and "Confession and Communion," respectively). I wrote down a lot of quotes from these chapters that I didn't want to forget!

One of my favorite quotes pertaining to Christian fellowship is found on page 27: "He who loves his dream of a community more than the Christian community itself becomes a destroyer of the latter, even though his personal intentions may be ever so honest and earnest and sacrificial." -- I see a lot of this "loving the dream more than the community" within the hipster movement, so it really stuck out to me.

Chapters 2 and 3 ("The Day with Others" and "The Day Alone," respectively) missed the mark a bit for me. I'm not quite sure which denomination Bonhoeffer is associated with, but I disagreed with many of his views on prayer (for example, he advocates very rigid, scheduled prayer times for various topics) as well as certain interactions between Christians. (He seems to believe that being a Christian means letting other believers walk all over you without holding them accountable, but not even Christ did that - He extends forgiveness, but we have to repent. Enabling others to sin is never the right course of action! I guess Bonhoeffer never read [b:Boundaries|944267|Boundaries When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life|Henry Cloud|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1348423991s/944267.jpg|1450035]. ;) )
