    Oh dear me, I am very glad I read this book It was actually very different from what I expected I think the aspect of the book that was most different from my expectations was also the one that I most appreciated, and that was how un heroic Bonhoeffer s story was Throughout so much of the book it was hard to believe both for me as a reader and it seemed Bonhoeffer as a character that any of the things he was able to do could have actually been a threat to Hitler s life In a way the very incr Oh dear me, I am very glad I read this book It was actually very different from what I expected I think the aspect of the book that was most different from my expectations was also the one that I most appreciated, and that was how un heroic Bonhoeffer s story was Throughout so much of the book it was hard to believe both for me as a reader and it seemed Bonhoeffer as a character that any of the things he was able to do could have ac...

    As recently as two weeks ago I was shaking my head at the inflammatory rhetoric comparing Trump to Hitler And then I started reading this book published in 1999, and therefore in no way attempting to reference current events I would have enjoyed it under any circumstances, as it is fascinating and well written But given the events of the past 12 days in the United States, the narrative was chilling, the section in 1933 especially so I view having read it during these 12 days in particula As recently as two weeks ago I was shaking my head at the inflammatory rhetoric comparing Trump to Hitler And then I started r...

    Wow, what a story Hard to read but important, I am not a huge fan on dwelling on humanity s cruelness but during those times, so much goodness shines through as well The author did a great job of writing it in a compelling story Only 4 stars because the verb tense seemed weird to me, it was hard to put a finger on it also since it is a novel about a real person and events, I kept wondering if this or that really happened I looked up several things to confirm Bonhoeffer is a modern saint bu Wow, what a story Hard to read but important, I am not a huge fan on dwelling on humanity s cruelness but during those times, so much goodness shines through as well The author did a great job of writing it in a compelling story Only 4 stars because the verb tense seemed weird to me, it was hard to put a finger on it also since it is a novel about a real person and events, I kept wondering if this or that really happened I looked up several things to confirm Bonhoeffer is a mo...

    Very much enjoyed how this book humanized the legendary Dietrich Bonhoeffer I was challenged and inspired by his story.I was amazed, as well, by the numerous parallels between Hitler s Germany and our current political environment Of course there are significant differences, but with certain passages I had to stop and remind myself that this book was written long before the era of Trump Bonhoeffer shakes his head and decides this new tactic will fail, for how will anyone be able to bear the Very much enjoyed how this book humanized the legendary Dietrich Bonhoeffer I was challenged and inspired by his story.I was amazed, as well, by the numerous parallels between Hitler s Germany and our current political environment Of course there are significant differences, but with certain passages I had to stop and remind myself that this book was written long before the era of Trump Bonhoeffer shakes his head and decides this new tactic will fail, for how will anyone be able to bear the stale jokes and forced humor...

    It s odd to read a novel about a historical person in this century I kept puzzling while I was reading whether, for example, his girlfriend was fictional or real, since I d never heard of her She s fictional but she fills a useful function in a novel I recommend reading the author s note at the end first, if this sort of incongruence is going to bother you I read this book because the book club I belong to in town was reading it and I was dismissive of the idea that I might learn something, It s odd to read a novel about a historical person in this century I kept puzzling while I was reading whether, for example, his girlfriend was fictional or real, since I d never heard of her She s fictional but she fills a useful function in a novel I recommend reading the author s note at the end first, if this sort of incongruence is going to bother you I read this book because the book club I belong to in town was reading it and I was dismissive of the i...

    This is probably one of my very favorites of all times I was first introduced to Denise Giardina through an Appalachian studies class, and learned of her Appalachian writings This is a completely different genre, but she does an excellent job of developing an theologic figure into a three dimensional human being I felt like I could relate, on some level to ...

    I entered the fictionalization of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer with some trepidation, since he is one of my heroes But Denise Giardina did a fine job with this, evoking the evolution the German pastor went through and his eventual decision to join in a plot to assassinate Hitler, whi...

    This is my all time favorite book about the plight of the jewish people in world war II and Dietrich Bonhoeffer s Chrisian theologian and martyr effort to help overturn the Nazi regime which cost him his life Written as historical fiction, but the main story line is based on fact.
