I received this book for free from the publisher’s Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
Gone but never forgotten
One of the great treats in life is to peek behind the curtain at the lives who went before us. Author Charles Marsh gives readers the great treat of seeing, hearing and reading about the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. This story is filled with grace, sorrow, hurt, action, compassion, strength, weakness, fervor, perseverance and humility. To be honest, the book’s flavor doesn’t stop there. There is so much to this book that you’ll be drawn to keep reading and keep seeing the life of a man who was used by God.
Charles Marsh researches Bonhoeffer as a man and as a mind. Therefore, you will see Mr. Bonhoeffer’s humanity along with his spirituality. This is a treat that readers will devour with every turn of the page.
What you will discover is that although Dietrich Bonhoeffer is no longer alive, his story and testimony live on. His persona has grown stronger over time because of the life he lived and the way he impacted others. If you like boring, drawn out stories, do not pick up this book. If you want to be fascinated, pick up this book!
