Item description for Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A Brief Life by Renate Bethge...

This expert and sympathetic account of Bonhoeffer's life and times is sprinkled with photos of Bonhoeffer, contributions from his friends and colleagues, and includes excerpts from his writings.

Publishers Description
His life became a symbol of Christian resistance to Hitler. His thought ushered in a new era of worldly Christianity. His personal struggle for authentic moral and religious stance became a beacon for a distracted world. Accompanied by family photos, the dramatic life, evolving thought, and perilous times of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) are sketched in this short volume, which also features short excerpts from his writing. This slim volume captures in a compelling and personal way the religious and political odyssey of one of the last century's great religious beacons.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A Brief Life?

A "brief" life indeed...  Dec 22, 2005
Although the book is clearly written and set up in a very reader friendly way, it is too brief. Since Renate Bethge is/was Bonhoeffer's niece the book is very trustworthy and gives good insight. However, the book's 86 pages of text could no doubt be shortened to 25 pages merely by lessening the margin space. The format of the book would fit poetry better than a biography. A slow reader, like the the writer of this review, can read the book in 1hr 20 min. The reason I bought this book was because I didn't know much about Bonhoeffer and thought this book, being under 100 pages might be more fitting than an 800 page book. I was disapointed to find there was little in this book which I did not know already.
What information this book gives, one can find on the internet for free.

If I had a 12 year old son that I wanted to give a constructive reading, this book would be perfect. For an adult that is seeking something more substantial, this is not the pick.
