Overview

WHO BETTER TO FACE THE GREATEST EVIL OF THE 20TH CENTURY THAN A HUMBLE MAN OF FAITH?

As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoefferùa pastor and author. In this New York Times best-selling biography, Eric Metaxas takes both strands of BonhoefferÆs lifeùthe theologian and the spyùand draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of BonhoefferÆs heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to HitlerÆs Germany, and sheds new light on BonhoefferÆs involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in ôOperation 7,ö the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland.

"Bonhoeffer is the story of a life framed by a passion for truth and a commitment to justice on behalf of those who face implacable evil.  Includes ReadersÆ Guide  ô[A] beautifully constructed biography.ö

ùThomas Fleming, author, The New DealersÆ War

ôMetaxas has created a biography of uncommon powerùintelligent, moving, well researched,vividly written, and rich in implication for our own lives. Or to put it another way: Buy this book. Read it. Then buy another copy and give it to a person you love. ItÆs that good.ö
