Bonhoeffer on the Bible Feb 19, 2007
I love this little book. It is a compilation of Bonhoeffer's meditations and essays on the Bible. I especially enjoyed the excerpts from his letters placed in between each reflection.
Here is one of my favorites that Bonhoeffer writes from Tegel Prison in sincere honesty... "Once again, I am going through weeks in which I read little in the Bible. I never really know what I should make of this. I don't feel guilty, or that I'm somehow getting behind, and I also know that after a while I will have a craving to plunge back into it. Can one think of this as an entirely "natural" spiritual process? I'm almost inclined to think so."
This book reveals Bonhoeffer's love for God's Word. It is (by his own admission) the very thing that made Bonhoeffer the man we know today. You will enjoy this simple yet refreshing read. I believe you will find that it reads as a devotional and still delivers the spiritual challenges that Bonhoeffer is known for.
For those new to Bonhoeffer, I suggest reading: "The Cost of Discipleship" "Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community" "Christ the Center"
