Vision Video Bonhoeffer: Agent of Grace, DVD

His resistance to Nazi Germany made him a modern hero. His execution in 1945 made him a Christian martyr. A true story of love, courage, and sacrifice, this dramatized presentation tells the story of Lutheran minister Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who spoke out against Nazi oppression---and paid the ultimate price for his beliefs. 90 minutes.

I had read the book, Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy before I ordered the DVD so I had a background for the movie. If I were to do it again, I would watch the DVD first and then read the book. The book is very intense and fills in all the gaps that the movie leaves out. The DVD is a good introduction to the book.

This movie was a good lesson for those living with adversity. It makes you consider how important it is to be an instrument in God's hand to help those around us while we are experiencing hardships ourselves. The movie was done well though it was a bit slow in places. Still, the message of grace working through one who knows he's going to die is what was inspiring to me.

The movie was well done and had a godly feel, but his compromised views on Christian ethics were a bit unsettling. Biblical Christians should beware and be prepared to discuss these subjects with pliable viewers.

an inspiring story based on one man's encounter with the Nazi machine. Well worth seeing, it does nevertheless leave unanswered some truly important moral and ethical issues. But even unanswered, the questions it raises are worth pondering.

This is a masterful production of the the Lutheran Minister Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The brilliant portrayal of his faith, courage and unyielding allegance to his Saviour in a very evil time. This movie was so powerful I went out and bought everything I could to study even more the life of such a great man. This movie has everything. He leaves you with a strong desire to be the very best you can be be as a human, citizen, christian and friend.This movie is number 1 in my top 10 list! Watch it and be changed forever !!!!!

Excellent movie. Pacifist Bonhoeffer had to determine whether it is morally right to help the resistance in Nazi Germany to assassinate Hitler. Those Christians who stood up for their principles suffered the same fate as those in the concentration camps. Bonhoeffer is a hero to all who resist evil.
