Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy is Eric Metaxas’ groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian and pastor who heroically stood up to Nazism and Hitler.
Bonhoeffer was hanged at the Flossenberg concentration camp at the age of 39, weeks before the Third Reich fell to the Allied Powers.
What is true? What is real? Is it ultimately a cosmic energy, a universal intelligence, a collective unconsciousness that all religions point us towards? Eric Metaxas was on a quest – this is the story of his conversion in his mid-20’s.
Eric Metaxas is passionate about words, ideas, history, and meaning. Raised in a Greek immigrant working-class family, he graduated from Yale University with aspirations to be a writer.
In what ways does the life-message of Dietrich Bonhoeffer speak to us in our time?
