Mind-stretching but not overwhelming--a must-read!
Once I settled into the unfamiliar cadence of Bonhoeffer's language, I gleaned so many hard-hitting insights from his sermons. Even though I was generations beyond the audience he addressed, I felt his passion for God and challenge to Christlikeness as though he had spoken it directly to me.
The collection of sermons included key points in Bonhoeffer's life; it helped me get to know him and appreciate all the more his stand for Christ at such a crucial time in history.
I'm so thankful to God for men like Bonhoeffer whose ideas and writings help the rest of us Christians get a firmer grasp on our own faith.
This is an ideal book for non-theologians like me: it's in-depth enough to stretch my mind, but short enough not to overwhelm. Plus, everyone can relate to the Psalms, and here Bonhoeffer enriches them and encourages us not just to read them as poetry but to pray them as prayers
