About "The Cost of Discipleship"
The Cost of Discipleship is one of the bestselling titles on the SCM Classics list and one of the classics of modern theology. Perhaps Dietrich Bonhoeffer's most radical book, this reading of the Sermon on the Mount has influenced many Christians throughout the world over the last 50 years. 50 years after its first publication, the book is reintroduced to readers of our time by Stephen Plant, Dean of Trinity Hall, Cambridge and one of the leading Bonhoeffer scholars of our time.
Meet the Author
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.
Customer Reviews For "The Cost of Discipleship"Write Your Own Review
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!
