Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of the heroes of World War II. Not only did he preach God’s word fearlessly, he spoke and actively resisted the evil of the Nazi regime. Discovered to be one of the people behind the plot to assassinate Hitler he was arrested and eventually martyred. Not long before his death he was engaged to be married, and this unfulfilled marriage is one of the bittersweet notes to his story, written here by skilled storyteller Dayspring MacLeod.
Dayspring MacLeod’s new book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a welcome event. In these days of challenge, and the need for Christian fidelity, there is much in Bonhoeffer’s story that reminds us of the ways faith can inspire courage and steadfast resolve—even in the face of greatest sacrifice. To read this intuitively–written book is to hear a call—to live a life of faith, courage, and resolve. May it find a wide, and well–deserved readership. -Kevin Belmonte, Historian; Author, ‘Beacon–Light: The Life of William Borden (1887–1913)’
Christian Focus Publication’s Hall of Faith biographies … are highly accessible through their abbreviated length and engaging style. They will doubtless whet the appetite of many readers to learn more about these noteworthy Christians. -Vance Christie, Pastor and author specialising in missionary biographies
