1. Can we get beyond our Gen X-spoiled expectation of point - story - application (none of that easy-read communication style here)
2. Are we even Christians!!?! (Yes, we concluded, but what a challenge to return to the all-in, just-follow-Jesus, no-matter-the-cost discipleship Jesus calls us to.)
Fascinated to learn more about the author, but might just need an easy-read break first whilst I recover from the challenge Dietrich has laid out for us!
If i could buy everyone a copy myself i would.
The central idea of "cheap grace" v "costly grace" will stick with you in your own walk with God....hopefully forever.
other highlights are his discussion of the "riddle of predestination"
and on page 207 the discussion about how God creates a community of saints.
As i said buy this book it will not disappoint
This was not merely an academic treatise. It is a call to action; to a life of devotion. Bonhoeffer's life and death bear the hallmarks of someone who lived out their writings in complete obedience to Christ. This is not to be read lightly, or glossed over. Read it and prepare to have your life changed.
