About "Wonder of Wonders"
"For the greatest, most profound, tenderest things in the world, we must wait." Never are moments of quiet reflection more important than during the rush of the Christmas season. These beautiful meditations from the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the most beloved theologians of the twentieth century, are perfect as brief devotions for those who already love Bonhoeffer's work and as wonderful introductions to his writing for young readers and others not yet familiar with him. Combined with beautifully evocative, full-color photographs, these passages remind us of the profound wonders we celebrate during Advent and Christmas and of the reverence appropriate to the season. Includes a short biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Perfect for gift giving.
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.
