The Cost of Discipleship

The Cost of Discipleship

$37.99

Paperback

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. "Grace is not cheap" according to Bonhoeffer "otherwise it is not grace at all".

Viewed against the background of Nazi Germany, Bonhoeffer's book The Cost of Discipleship 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.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian (he received his doctorate in theology at the age of only 21), participant in the German Resistance movement against Nazism, and a founding member of the Confessing Church. He was involved in plots planned by members of the Abwehr (the German Military Intelligence Office) to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

He was arrested in March 1943, imprisoned, and eventually hanged just before the end of the World War II in Europe.

Some of his selected published works include Creation and Fall: A Theological Exposition of Genesis 1-3; Life Together; The Cost of Discipleship; Ethics; Christ the Center and Letters and Papers from Prison.

Answer the call of Christ
5 stars By Karl, 27 Feb 2013
Without really knowing who he was beforehand, I read a biography of the author Bonhoeffer midway through last year and was very much impressed by the strength and character of the man. I soon bought Discipleship afterwards knowing that it was a classic, yet I put off on reading it until now largely because I didn't know what I was missing out on. This book has a power that challenged me through its insights, and it is soaked in scripture. Christ calls us to come and die in him, he wants all of us with nothing held back, and while I've heard this from many other places it never really hit home like it did here. There is too much in this volume for a review to do it justice, but I highly recommend it for everyone.

A challenging thought provoking read
5 stars By Harry Miller, 01 Oct 2009
I'm 17 and was advised to read this book by my 78 year old associate pastor.

It's a tough read, with each and every line chock full of solid theology. 
I find myself having to read only a chapter a day, and then chewing over it for a while. 

The book centres around the idea of "costly grace" and "true discipleship", 
using the sermon on the mount and other scriptures, to outline what these entail. 

I've been hugely challenged by this book.
It's an immensely difficult, but well worth wile read.
