    I was 16 and had been a Christian about a year thie first time I read this book. It made a big impression and I have never forgotten it.

    Some books are monumental and formative… This is one of them.

  3. Linn says:

    It really enhanced my commitment to both Christ and his church. I was committed back then to my political views. Bonhoeffer brought it all into perspective for me.

    I read this in the beginning stages of my walk of Christ and it fueled a fervency for Christ that was willing to suffer while employed in His stead.

    It is high time to read it prayerfully again to invigorate and purify a first love that is filled with good works for friend and foe alike while recognizing evil , even in it’s religiously politicized forms and refusing to submit to it as part of a grace given perseverance to remain in Christ and to occupy in every realm of life until He comes or He bids me to come up to Him.

    Thanks for sharing Duane and Michael.

    Well said…

    Bonhoeffer has become one of my favorite theologians…not just for this work but all around.

    I highly commend to all the published collections of his sermons that are available…

  7. Duane Arnold says:


    Agreed… Also, ‘Letters and Papers From Prison’…

  8. Muff Potter says:

    Every time I hear the right-wing of fundagelical christendom whine about how they feel ‘persecuted’, I think of Bonhoeffer and realize that they’re full of you know what.
