Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Communityby Dietrich Bonhoeffer, John W. Doberstein (Translator)
Martyred at the hands of the Gestapo in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer left a legacy of writings that has become a prized testimony of faith and courage for Christians around the world. Life Together is his inspiring account of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years in Germany. It reads like one of Paul's letters and gives practical and timeless advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups.
The roles of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service are addressed in simple, almost biblical terms in this classic work on the meaning and importance of Christian community.
A classic work of Christian community in a time of strife
"Most books can be skimmed quickly; some deserve careful reading; a precious few should be devoured and digested. Life Together... belongs to the third category."
--Richard J. Foster, author of Prayer: Finding the Heart's True Home
"Seldom has the challenge as well as the joy of living together in Christ's name been articulated so clearly and so convincingly as by Dietrich Bonhoeffer."
--Henri J. M. Nouwen, pastor of L'Arch-Daybreak
"A man of exceptional intuition, Dietrich Bonhoeffer foresaw certain evolutions that were going to take place. He knew how to find Gospel responses that surprise us, just as much today as yesterday. In one of the gravest periods in the history of Europe, he remains the person who gave his life, approaching martyrdom for the sake of Christ and the Gospel."
--Brother Roger, founder of the Taiz� community
