One of the finest... Dec 22, 2008
Over the course of the years I have used many of these "daily devotional" books. Not all are created equal! Being a fan of Dietich Bonhoeffer, I bought this unassuming little book and used it during 2008 as an additional supplement to my daily prayer and meditation. This is clearly one of the finest books of its kind! Not only does the Reverend Ringma choose challenging passages from Bonhoeffer's writings, but further aids the reader with a relevent passage from Scripture as well as his own brief challenging commentary on Bonhoeffer's words which make them even more applicable to our daily life. A final sentence of prayer or meditaion leaves us with a thought to keep in our mind throughout the day, based on what we just read. There are many more flashy looking daily meditation books out there, but if your more concerned with the content and challenge to live the Gospel aided by one of our contemporary saints, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and guided by a wise paster, the Revered Ringma, then this is the choice for you! You won't be disappointed!
Bonhoeffer For Dummies Jul 4, 2006
If anyone is not familiar with Dietrich Bonhoeffer's writings, this little sample, along with the emphases by Charles Ringma, would make a nice introduction. There is, by far, more of Ringma than there is of Bonhoeffer, but his elaborations are thought-provoking and insightful. Especially helpful is the concluding thought summary which provides food for reflection throughout the day.
Daily Bonhoeffer - WHat more could you ask for? Dec 9, 2004
This liitle book has been with me since the first day I bought it and I haven't missed many days since.
This book continues to amaze me in the very solid insights it instills day by day. One should be warned: these are not from your typical close minded point of view, but rather a honest down to earth interpretation of Bonhoeffer at his best. Dr. Ringma's application to daily life is very insightful and the short 'prayer and thought of the day' usally drive the point home.
Any one whom as even slightly raised an eyebrow at the thought of Bonhoeffer will cherish this tiny book.
