The cost of discipleship. Dietrich Bonhoeffer
"When Christ calls a man,he bid him come and die." Those powerful words from Dietrich Bonhoeffer startle pop christianity today.
This book is quite simply, one of the most profound and important books of the 20th century.Dietrich Bonhoeffer lived a testimony of his thoughtful and engaging writings.
It focuses on the most treasured part of Christ's teaching - the sermon on the mount with its call to discipleship, and on the grace of God and the sacrifice which that demands.
Viewed against the background of Nazi Germany, Bonhoeffer's book is striking enough. At the same time, it shares with many great Christian classics a quality of timelessness, so that it has spoken, and continues to speak powerfully, to the varied concerns of the contemporary world.
