Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

$13.19

Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied and overran a continent, all the while attempting to exterminate the Jews of Europe. However, there were a small number of dissidents and saboteurs who worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these people was Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  In this New York Times best-selling biography, Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life—the theologian and the spy—and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffer’s heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler’s Germany. Additionally, he sheds light on Bonhoeffer’s involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in “Operation 7,” the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland. (For more from Deitrich Bonhoeffer, read The Cost of Discipleship, found on our Spiritual Growth resources page.)
