Item description for Discipleship (Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, Vol. 4) by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Geoffrey B. Kelly & Wayne Whitson Floyd...

Overview
With this sharp warning to his own church, engaged in bitter conflict with the official nazified state church, Dietrich Bonhoeffer began his classic book Discipleship (formerly entitled The Cost of Discipleship). Orginally published in 1937, this book soon became a signal exposition of what it means to follow Jesus Christ in a modern world beset by a dangerous and criminal government. At its center stands and interpretation of the Sermon on the Mount: what Jesus demanded of his followers and how the life of discipleship is to be continued in all ages of the church. "Every call of Jesus is a call to death," Bonhoeffer wrote. Like his own life, Bonhoeffer's search for authentic Christianity resonates strongly even today. Freshly translated from the German critical edition, Discipleship provides a more accurate rendering of the text and extensive aids and commentary to clarify the theological meaning and social context of this attempt to resist the Nazi ideology.

Publishers Description
"Cheap grace is the mortal enemy of our church. Our struggle today is for costly grace." And with that sharp warning to his own church, which was engaged in bitter conflict with the official nazified state church, Dietrich Bonhoeffer began his book Discipleship (formerly entitled The Cost of Discipleship). Originally published in 1937, it soon became a classic exposition of what it means to follow Christ in a modern world beset by a dangerous and criminal government. At its center stands an interpretation of the Sermon on the Mount: what Jesus demanded of his followers-and how the life of discipleship is to be continued in all ages of the post- resurrection church. "Every call of Jesus is a call to death," Bonhoeffer wrote. His own life ended in martyrdom on April 9, 1945. Freshly translated from the German critical edition, Discipleship provides a more accurate rendering of the text and extensive aids and commentary to clarify the meaning, context, and reception of this work and its attempt to resist the Nazi ideology then infecting German Christian churches.

Reviews - What do customers think about Discipleship (Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, Vol. 4)?

The Heart of Bonhoeffer  Apr 21, 2001
The fourth volume, "Discipleship" in the Bonhoeffer works series is an outstanding representation of not just Bonhoeffer the theologian, but Bonhoeffer the man as well. The fresh translation brings back to life the passion with which this man of God lived his life. Bonhoeffer viewed the church of his day as falling away from the teachings of Jesus, but within the pages of, "Discipleship", he writes of what is necessary of the Christian, in order that he or she may be true disciples of Christ.
