I’m Reading: Bonhoeffer

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

By Eric Metaxas

In the first major biography of Bonhoeffer in forty years, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life—the theologian and the spy—and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. In a deeply moving narrative, Metaxas uses previously unavailable documents—including personal letters, detailed journal entries, and firsthand personal accounts—to reveal dimensions of Bonhoeffer’s life and theology never before seen.

I’m finally getting around to reading this book after picking up a copy on sale from Johnsen & Taylor. I sent a copy to my dad for Father’s Day and figured it was time. It’s a monster of a book, and so far it looks as if Metaxas can tell the story of a great man with power.
