From the New York Times
bestselling author of Amazing Grace
an abridged version of the groundbreaking biography of Dietrich
Bonhoeffer, one of the greatest heroes of the twentieth century, the man
who stood up to Hitler.
A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story
of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism.
After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer
returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against
Hitler. As a double-agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer,
and was hanged in Flossenberg concentration camp at age 39. Since his
death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex
figures of the 20th century.
Bonhoeffer presents a profoundly orthodox Christian theologian
whose faith led him to boldly confront the greatest evil of the 20th
century, and uncovers never-before-revealed facts, including the story
of his passionate romance.
