Review of BONHOEFFER ABRIDGED by Eric Metaxas

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a fascinating man who is known for his insight into being a disciple of Jesus and the concept of community in the body of Christ. There's much more to his life than just those things, however. When Eric Metaxas' biography on Bonhoeffer came out a couple years ago, I wanted to read it, but never got around to it.

Now, Thomas Nelson has made BONHOEFFER ABRIDGED available, which includes much of the text of the original book, but much is taken out as well. The idea is to keep in the bare essentials. Bonhoeffer's life put him right in the middle of what was going on during World War II. He was very outspoken against Hitler and even participated in a plot to assassinate the German leader. Bonhoeffer's life was filled with tragedies and trials, and he exhibited a solid faith in Jesus that is encouraging to many to this day.

BONHOEFER ABRIDGED is an accessible biography from a masterful writer.
