Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, SpyBonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well written biography about a man of uncommon courage. Bonhoeffer was first a theologian, but his theology drove him to action and involved him in plans to assassinate Hitler. He was executed just days before the war ended and Hitler was dead by his own hand. After reading this biography, I think I would like to tackle one of his theological books -- perhaps The Cost of Discipleship.
