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.

A vital wake-up call on being a disciple of Christ
5 stars By Will, Jul 28 2018
Bonhoeffer challenges the real meaning and cost of being a disciple and it remains as relevant today as in his time. With "cheap grace" being prevalent in the 21st century church, Bonhoeffer take us back to Christ's Sermon on the Mount and reminds us what it truly means to be a follower and disciple of Christ.

An engaging, challenging and edifying book indeed!

Cheap Grace?
4 stars By Wally Bocos, Jun 12 2018
Bonhoeffer's classic master piece! Sure, not all can be accepted without question, but not much that Bonhoeffer writes is without biblical precedence. As disciples of Jesus Christ, do we live as though our calling cost much, or do we live as though the grace bestowed upon us is cheap? Hence, Cheap grace?

Not an easy read at all. Which I suspect many who begin to read this volume will falter as they reach chapter 3. That said even those first three chapters are worth labouring over. On the teaching side; I found Bonhoeffer's leading into each chapter with a biblical passage quite helpful. I marked by bible with each page reference for easy referencing come the time to preach on such a passage. 

For example, section 2; "The Sermon on the Mount" is broken into three subsections, Matt 5, 6 and 7 respectively. An each chapter of each subsection begins with a verse of the sermon on the mount. I then placed a note in my bible at Matt 5:1 - "Cost of discipleship - page 105". For future reference. Thus the book was very helpful in this manner.

Profound, Timeless Insights
5 stars By Ben, Apr 24 2017
This book by Dietrich Bonhoeffer is famous for good reason. It gives a penetrating wake-up call to the dangers of 'cheap grace', of claiming to believe in Jesus but not really living for him. Bonhoeffer doesn't hold back from talking about how costly it is to truly follow Jesus, and this is a word that the church today needs to hear just as much as in his time.

This audiobook edition is very engaging and well-read, and I'm enjoying it immensely!
