Overview
Winner, Christianity Today 2015 Book Award in History/Biography
Shortlisted for the PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography

In the decades since his execution by the Nazis in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German pastor, theologian, and anti-Hitler conspirator, has become one of the most widely read and inspiring Christian thinkers of our time. With unprecedented archival access and definitive scope, Charles Marsh captures the life of this remarkable man who searched for the goodness in his religion against the backdrop of a steadily darkening Europe. From his brilliant student days in Berlin to his transformative sojourn in America, across Harlem to the Jim Crow South, and finally once again to Germany where he was called to a ministry for the downtrodden, we follow Bonhoeffer on his search for true fellowship and observe the development of his teachings on the shared life in Christ. We witness his growing convictions and theological beliefs, culminating in his vocal denunciation of Germany s treatment of the Jews that would put him on a crash course with Hitler. Bringing to life for the first time this complex human being his substantial flaws, inner torment, the friendships and the faith that sustained and finally redeemed him Strange Glory is a momentous achievement."
