A book for today as this country faces a new challenging time. The author was able to face a time of challenge through a solid understanding of the classic teachings of the Bible. His life was lived and practiced according to his understanding of the Biblical mandates and he is honored for his stand. This book presents those teachings in a powerful, inspirational manner and challenges us to live out our faith even when it becomes costly.
I have heard of and seen references to Dietrich Bonhoeffer for years and finally decided I would read some of his work. This is a very compelling book. I am reading it slowly - not finished yet. It is giving me a lot to think about, soul-searching, probing my own attitudes and motives. I recommend it to anyone who desires a deeper understanding of who Jesus is, what he has done and what He calls us to.
