Thought Provoking Devotional Mar 27, 2010
If you like to be challenged in your thoughts about God, then this devotional book is for you.
A treasure for those who love Bonhoeffer! Oct 30, 2008
With a couple of shelves of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's works and books about his theology it never occurred to me that I would be interested in this kind of book, but when our associate pastor pointed out one meditation to me I was knocked out by the translation! The translation is perfectly glorious and utterly readable. The translation of "Von guten Machten" alone is worth the price of the book. The readings are well edited and provide splendid daily readings.It is a wonderful introduction to Bonhoeffer and those who know Bonhoeffer well will find all manner of delightful surprises.
Attractive collection of daily readings from Bonhoeffer Mar 31, 2008
This is a very attractively-presented collection of daily readings from the writings of German Theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Loosely following the Church's year and gathered from many of his writings, including those when he was imprisoned by the Nazis before his execution, they show how Bonhoeffer understood the meaning of discipleship and the importance of placing God at the centre of the believer's life. Biblical references are given to help the reader towards further study and, although generally fairly short passages for each day, there is plenty to think about. The book is US-published with American spelling but the translations of the original German read smoothly and fluidly apart from the Preface by Manfred Weber with its slightly clunky translation. This is an excellent collection and a great introduction to this important 20th century thinker.
A Bonhoeffer Treasury Feb 8, 2008
This collection of writings of Bonhoeffer is a gem of daily meditations. Just when I think I know his writings something else comes along that opens that door even wider. His thoughts are timeless, and certainly as meaningful today as when they were written in Nazi Germany. These are not random thoughts, but rather group together topically which enhances their spiritual value.
