WHO BETTER TO FACE THE GREATEST EVIL OF THE 20TH CENTURY THAN A HUMBLE MAN OF FAITH?As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation bullied a continent and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffera pastor and author In this New York Times best selling biography Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffers lifethe theologian and the spyand draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffers heart wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitlers Germany and sheds new light on Bonhoeffers involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in Operation 7 the effort I had never heard of Bonhoeffer until this book came out It took me a while to get around the Kindle version I picked up on a special price and read the book But when I saw Mr Metaxas recently on Cspan I was reminded I hadn't read this biography yet I have read some of his other books and enjoyed them and this is no different after reading it through uite rapidlyOf course Bonhoeffer is a sad story though inspiring because he died for his beliefs But the book provides a great and very readable account of his life and story Yes Bonhoeffer is a religious story and a religious man that offered witness to the terrible regime that enveloped Germany from 1933 1945 I dare not mention it because the reviews gets flagged and he ultimately died because of his principled oppositionBut this is such a well written and worthwhile book anyone should and can read this and unless that have no soul they can't help but be interested and inspired Wow Terrific Highly recommended
