It’s been a fantastic journey to enter into the life Dietrich Bonhoeffer through the writing of Eric Metaxas. “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” is a deeply moving telling of the life of the German Lutheran theologian and pastor who would face the leviathan of evil known as the Third Reich in Nazi Germany. In reading this work, I was reminded of the young man several years ago in Tiananmenin Square who stood before the tank during the protests. It doesn’t surprise me that Archbishop Chaput would highly recommended this book as well as the “witness” of this Christian man who was a voice for those who could not speak. He did what St. Paul called us all to do…to stand. Eric Metaxas does a great job bringing this biography to life and giving us the greater contextof his witness.
