Question for All Who Read this Blog in a Reader (RSS Feed)

April 6, 2011


If you are one of the people who reads this blog in a blog/feed reader, I have a question for you that I’d kindly like you to answer in the comments (I suspect some of you have never made a comment on the blog). What reader do you use to read the posts? I would […]

Blogging Through Bonhoeffer: Part IX

March 25, 2011


The rest of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, Volumes 7 to 16, are made up of personal letters that he wrote, sermons, meditations, essays, diary entries, a novel, and lectures spanning from his early life to his last days in prison.

The next three books I will review are my favorite works by Bonhoeffer. All of them are prophetic works as opposed to his academic books. These were written and spoken in the midst of the Confessing Church’s struggle with Nazism. Discipleship, 1937 (later published as The Cost of Discipleship) Discipleship is DB’s best known and […]
