Could ruminate on the problems of faith discussing Bultmann Barth Kant and others and yet have a simple real trusting faith Herzrivalen in Christ We suffer with Christn a world that has rejected God The Christian does not run and hide but embracing his calling to live n a world without God and suffer with Christ n that world Oh my As Alaskan Nights if I weren t alreadynordinately fond of Bonhoeffer his writings and his life this collection of his letters and notes written while he was n prison on suspicion of conspiracy to assassinate Hitler cements him n my high estimation I feel so many things about this book In the midst of such a difficult painful experience Bonhoeffer displays deep faith and profound composure n his letters to his family and fiance I was often struck by how much pain he tries to alleviate n their experience of a loved one being n prison And t always feels sincere Granted Bonhoeffer s World War II German prison experience was comfortable than was typical but I truly believe him when he writes he Always Look Twice is comfortable at peace and even finding ways to enjoy solitude He expresses expected frustration at the legal delays and sadness at missing big family events butt All For You: Halfway There / Buckhorn Ever After / The One You Want / One Perfect Night is always with an acceptance of God s timing and allowance The books also a wonderful look Any Man Of Mine into Bonhoeffer sntimate theological wonderings but I actually treasure the book most for the deep friendship and love displayed Annalee And The Lawman in the letters between him and Eberhard Bethge Whereas Bonhoeffer displays strength and poisen his displayed The Apollonides Mistress Scandal in the letters between him and Eberhard Bethge Whereas Bonhoeffer displays strength and poisen his to his family he lets the walls down with Bethge Through the letters and personally spiritual poems he sends to Bethge we get a uniue look nto the deep emotional humanity of a rather stoic German theologian I was struck by Bonhoeffer s many reuests to Bethge to write longer letters and to respond n depth to Bonhoeffer s reuests to Bethge to write longer letters and to respond Anything For His Son in depth to Bonhoeffer s and spiritual explorations In the midst of anmposed ascetic lifestyle Bonhoeffer found treasures Anticipation in his own writings andn the writings of his loved ones Even Bonhoeffer s poetry while uite poor revealed surprising emotional depths n a typically cool objective man Bonhoeffer clearly received uniue encouragement and affirmation from Bethge not only n Bethge s letters but n the space created between the two friends for emotional expression support and spiritual discovery It was an ncredibly poignant reading experienceI cried while reading the last 30 pages of this book I am tearing up writing this review I only say that to llustrate how unexpectedly emotional I was reading Bonhoeffer s letters despite the minimal action and the rather staid tone I can t wait to read of Bonhoeffer s works and to reread Metaxas biography with a deeper knowledge of the man himself Bonhoeffer s commitment to the necessary worldliness of Christian living s Annie and the Outlaw inspirational not just because of the depth of his wisdom but because of the example he providesn his life ANNIE AND THE PRINCE imprisonment and death The brilliance of this book liesn the The Single Dad's Redemption intimacy you get with the authors mostly Bethge and Bonhoeffer The cheerfulness and resilience displayed by Bonhoeffermplicated A Christmas Affair in many of his letters are extremely admirable What can be uite hard about reading these letters with little background knowledges the high degree of familiarity assumed Because Bethge and Bonhoeffer were very close they could express a world of thought n half a sentence which assumed Because Bethge and Bonhoeffer were very close they could express a world of thought n half a sentence which The Apple Orchard it sometimes hard for an outsider to grasp the complete meaning Still even for the reader less acuainted with Bonhoeffer s other works thiss a great way to pick his brain a little bit 70 years later Another fantastic one fo. S expanded version of Letters and Papers from Prison shifts the emphasis of earlier editions of Bonhoeffer’s theological reflections to the private sphere of his life His letters appear When Hitler Took Austria: A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son in greater detail and show his daily concerns Letters from Bonhoeffer’s parents siblings and other relatives have also been addedn addition to previously. R my uote series Please don t ever get anxious or worry about me but don t forget to pray for me I m sure you don t I am so sure of God s guiding hand that I hope I shall always be kept n that certainty You must never doubt that I m traveling with gratitude and cheerfulness along the road where I m being led My past life s brim full of God s goodness and my sins are covered by the forgiving love of Christ crucified One of my favorite research papers to write was one on Christian German resistance during World War II While I could go on for days discussing t which I m sure you find shocking I ll just stick to one of the main players from that Dietrich Bonhoeffer He was arrested and later executed 23 days before Berlin was captured by the allies for the discovery of his connection to anti Hitler conspiracies think the movie Valkyrie Prior to being moved to a concentration camp he was n prison where he wrote numerous lettersAbove s from one of them Incredible Knowing there was a high possibility he would die at the hands of people who lived by hate he was about honoring God and forgiveness As Timothy Keller concluded Bonhoeffer Uses Divine Forgiveness uses divine forgiveness help him understand human forgiveness As Bonhoeffer says everyone who forgives someone bears the other s sins So much to take from both of those uotesHave you read any of Bonhoeffer What are your thoughts You can join n here From April 1943 to April 1945 Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a prisoner of the Gestapo Suspected of participating n a plot against Hitler he Was Eventually Executed In The eventually executed n the days of World War II This book s a collection of letters he wrote from prison to his family his fiancee Maria and his dearest friend EberhardBonhoeffer was n his late 30s when he was arrested He was a Lutheran theologian who had publicly uestioned the rise of fascism and anti Semitism n Germany and was systematically silenced by Hitler s government unable finally to publish any of his writings or to preach n any pulpit Along with other members of his family Bonhoeffer secretly participated Ensimmäinen maailmansota in an effort led by officers of Army Inte I cannot recommend this edition given the other ones that are available but I happened to havet Context Molly Weir's Trilogy of Scottish Childhood is needed not least because Bonhoeffer was playing a rolen many of his letters for the censors and they read as being pretty naive and over cheerful I finally started reading the relevant parts of Bonhoeffer Pastor Martyr Prophet Spy beside The Lion Seeker it and that helped a lotWhat made B such a great man He was brilliant and came from a great family and had great opportunities But I think one of the biggest factors that made him the man he was was his discipline He was very disciplined about meditating on the Bible and prayer though notn a fundamentalist way Further as he wrote n his poem Stations on the Road to Freedom discipline s essential to freedom Tom Waits - Mule Variations including the ability to act and do the right thing Reading this book even knowing the endingn advance s sad It s sad that we lost such a man to the nsanity of Nazi Germany But B believed n a greater life than the one that he was living and he hoped n that n very difficult circumstances This s the end For me the beginning of life Rev Bonhoeffer s prison writings written while he was Ghanta College : The Art of Topping College Life imprisoned by the Nazis I would recommend any of this great man s writings However I would not recommend this as a first book for someone unfamiliar with his work Becauset s largely comprised of his letters t can be a bit disjointed and confusing to someone unfamiliar with his thought Best to start with The Cost of Discipleship or the Ethics. Inaccessible letters and legal papers referring to his trial      Acute and subtle warm and perceptive yet also profoundly moving the documents collectively tell a very human story of loss of courage and of hope Bonhoeffer’s story seems as vitally relevant as politically prophetic and as theologically significant today as t did yesterd.
