Costly Grace: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Costly Grace is a modern revisiting of Dietrich Boenhoeffer's classic book, The Cost of Discipleship. I have wanted to read that book for a long time but haven't had the chance. I feel that this book has given me a basic understanding of those principles and so much more. This is not a read for those who are faint of spiritual heart - it's for those who want to re-examine their faith and analyze why they are doing what they're doing what they're doing. The most challenging concept for me was the idea that suffering can be used by God to help grow our faith. The book has an analysis of the each topic from The Cost of Discipleship with modern commentary and extensive quotes, and the end of each chapter has a practical application for the principle being dealth with. There is a list of self-talk items that show "Fallen Thinking" and then another that show what a spirit driven perspective would do to deal with it.
