This is a well-written biography of a famous man. I’ve wanted to read the book for several years now, and I was thankful when I finally got the chance. It is very long—longer than I thought it was!—but overall, I found it to not be too hard to get through. Metaxas knows how to write an interesting story.

In saying that, though, I don’t agree with Bonhoeffer’s conclusions and the way he went about doing things, and I also didn’t appreciate the condoning/explaining away attitude I came across at times. I firmly believe that God had a plan even for Hitler’s life, and though he did unspeakable horrors, he wouldn’t have died any earlier than God had planned. Bonhoeffer did his part in trying to assassinate Hitler, and it seemed like just about anything was fine in his eyes (including blatant lying) to reach that goal…that isn’t Christ’s way, in my opinion.

As far as a biography goes, I feel like I learned a lot from this book. I don’t know if all the history in here is correct, but most of the parts I am familiar with lined up with other things I’ve read. Some have cast doubt on the truthfulness of the history in here; I just don’t know. If you want to get a good overview of Bonhoeffer, his family, and the times he lived in, this could be a good choice for you. Just be warned that there are atrocities spoken of here, and sin is shown as it was—so this isn’t a book for children. ( )

This is a hard book to review.

Bonhoeffer was average, a nobody. Nothing special. Except that he lived in a time when average and nobodies didn't exist. Every person who lived in those times had the opportunity to make a difference and Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one of many who became extraordinary through his refusal to deny what he knew to be right. He was brilliant and, again like many, exemplified the humanity at a time when animals made headlines.

This book gave me a different view of pre-war Germany, and pre-war America, from an insider's perspective. It drew extensively from his writings. I LOVED that he loved Spirituals and Harlem. I loved that he went back to Germany when he didn't need to. And I loved his way with words and his thoughtfulness

This book also told me too much about Hitler, his generals, his methods, and prisoners. I saw a book today that was entitled "Making sense of the Holocaust" and I was angry. Anyone attempting to "make sense" of those horrors, seems an affront to all those who didn't survive and those who did. I guess those scenes from [b:The Chosen|187181|The Chosen|Chaim Potok|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1403191327s/187181.jpg|1336083] with the father and the trauma make sense.

In some ways, I think we are all products of the trauma of world events.

The book struggled at the end, though. Like some of Metaxas' other books he will quote at length and then summarize the quote. I think you should pick one or the other. Like the Luther bio, at the end there were so many names, locations, and writing that I couldn't keep track of them. And the story, for the last 3 chapters, was disjointed. But there are few biographies on Bonhoeffer. It was a huge undertaking, for he was very prolific. I would recommend it. Worth reading about everyday acts of courage.

*This book was recommended to my by my tax guy. ( )

An extrordinary book about an extrordinary man. ( )

Interesting but a little too much liturgical "inside baseball" for my taste. Martin Luther was far more engaging. Still, a treasure trove of historical information, especially from inside the Third Reich." ( )

“Metaxas tells Bonhoeffer’s story with passion and theological sophistication.” —Wall Street Journal

“[A] weighty, riveting analysis of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.” —Publishers Weekly

“Metaxas presents Bonhoeffer as a clear-headed, deeply convicted Christian who submitted to no one and nothing except God and his Word.” —Christianity Today
  staylorlib | May 17, 2021 |
In this fine biography, Metaxas stays close to the story and refrains from any efforts at theory. All the more reason to read it: when it comes to the strengths and the limits of post-Kantian liberalism, we already have theory aplenty. But be careful what you read it for....

His soul really shone in the dark desperation of our prison . . . [Bonhoeffer] had always been afraid that he would not be strong enough to stand such a test but now he knew there was nothing in life of which one need ever be afraid.

(Above is Payne Best's quotation, and below are Bonhoeffer's.) 

No one has yet believed in God and the kingdom of God, no one has yet heard about the realm of the resurrected, and not been homesick from that hour, waiting and looking forward to being released from bodily existence.  

Whether we are young or old makes no difference.  What are twenty or thirty or fifty years in the sight of God?  And which of us knows how near he or she may already be to the goal?  . . . Why are we so afraid when we think about death? . . . Death is only dreadful for those who live in dread and fear of it.  Death is not wild and terrible, if only we can be still and hold fast to God's Word.  . . . .

Death is hell and night and cold, if it is not transformed by our faith.  But that is just what is so marvelous, that we can transform death.
