Item description for Hanged on a Twisted Cross [VHS] by Vision Video...
Biblical theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer was executed by the Nazis just days before the Allies defeated Germany in World War II. This gripping documentary captures the life, times, and thought of Bonhoeffer. Using rare archival footage, documents, and visits to original locations, we get an intimate and penetrating portrait of a man whose life and writings grow in their influence and speak powerfully to issues of our own day some 50 years after his death. How does a man of peace come to assist violence in combating unrestrained evil? What do you do when deep-seated patriotism for your nation compels you to oppose your fatherland and its demonic leader? These and other issues Bonhoeffer confronted with a searching Biblical faith and personal courage in a way that speaks to every generation. 120 minutes.
