  • His life became a symbol of Christian resistance to Hitler. His thought ushered in a new era of worldly Christianity. His personal struggle for authentic moral and religious stance became a beacon for a distracted world. Accompanied by family photos, the dramatic life, evolving thought, and perilous times of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) are sketched in this short volume, which also features short excerpts from his writing.

    This slim volume captures in a compelling and personal way the religious and political odyssey of one of the last centurys great religious beacons.


    Dietrich Bonhoeffer (German pronunciation: (February 4, 1906-April 9, 1945) was a German Lutheran pastor and theologian. He was also a participant in the German Resistance movement against Nazism, a founding member of the Confessing Church. His involvement in plans by members of the Abwehr (the German Military Intelligence Office) to assassinate Adolf Hitler resulted in his arrest in April 1943 and his subsequent execution by hanging in April 1945, shortly before the wars end. His view of Christianitys role in the secular world has become very influential.
