5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and impressive, 31 July 2011
This review is from: Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy (Hardcover)
Yes,this is big book, but it of a big life with many lessons still to teach us. Lessons which have not always been correctly understood. This is man a humble hero deeply rooted in God, the very opposite to the image some have of him arising from misunderstanding or misuse of his phrase "religionless Christianity". Life, wider history and theology are carefully balanced in this book.No specail knowlege is required to profitably read it. Metaxas is a comparatively unobtusive biographer but has obvoiusly mastered a great deal of documentation and was almost always left me feeling compelled to read on. My only negative is that sometimes I felt quotes were either too frequent or lengthy. To some people that's just getting value for money! Also a few Americanisms were not understood this side of the Atlantic. Some biographies from those who knew Dietrich personally might just add an extra human dimension, but may lack a contempoary perspective. These are small quibbles. This book just about has this subject completely wrapped-up. I much enjoyed this book and definately recommend it.
