Fortress Press Discipleship: Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works [DBW], Volume 4

Much more then most modern Westerners, Bonhoeffer understood that to be a disciple of Christ means sacrifice. This volume is freshly translated from the German critical edition of Bonhoeffer's interpretation of the Sermon on the Mount. It provides a more accurate rendering of Bonhoeffer's original text; and includes extensive study aids and commentary to clarify the theological meaning and social context of what it means to follow Jesus in modern-even dangerous- times.

The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works Series offers material from some of Bonhoeffer's most influential thoughts along with biographical information about his life, ministry, and imprisonment. Bonhoeffer was a man of strong convictions; this dedication to the wholeness of the Gospel cost him his life at the hand of the Nazi regime during World War II. Each volume in this series is rich with Bonhoeffer's wisdom of what it takes to follow Christ in a fallen world.

This book is a must read for Bonhoeffer fans and goes deeper than the "Cost of Discipleship" which is an abridged version of this book. Bonhoeffer's writing style is very straight forward and "matter of fact" in approach and comes out of the gate swinging in the very first chapter. Do yourself a favor and buy this book!

By contrasts the author helps the reader examine themselves, for the sake of Christian living, no matter where the reader lives or their circumstances. The author lives in my memory still, because he left behind lasting impressions that still challenge me today. How? By providing me with a very deep understand that discipleship is the disciplined life and he expounds upon his concerpt called Logo Therapy, which came out his personal experiences of co-prisoners of war who committed suicide as prisoners of war together; while the author was able to use his faith to outwit such a fate, by focusing upon what he hoped would be his new future reunion someday with his family etc. Please, whoever you are reading this, look past the dollar cost of this offer and fill yourself too with all the ideas Mr. Bonhoffer will give you by which to live your life to the fullest and instill a larger degree of hope into others you meet along life's highway. You will come away from your reading of this book as I did, knowing what it is and wanting to forever be a disciple of our Lord Jesus.
