The cost of discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )
311 editions published between 1937 and 2014 in 25 languages and held by 4,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between "cheap grace" and "costly grace."

"Called by Karl Barth "the brilliant Ethics of Dietrich Bonhoeffer," this book is finally being recognized as Bonhoeffer's magnum opus and one of the most important works of Christian ethics of the last century. Presented here in a new translation and a new arrangement, it is based on intensive study of the original manuscripts. Bonhoeffer's Ethics is copiously annotated with historical notes and editorial commentary that reveal the theological basis of his radical critique of Nazi policies and practices."--BOOK JACKET

"Daily, quiet reflection on the Word of God as it applies to me becomes for me a point of crystallization for everything that gives interior and exterior order to my life, "wrote Dietrich Bonhoeffer to his colleagues at the warfront in the winter of 1942. Now back in print after a decade, this collection of Bonhoeffer's writings, sermons, and letters on meditation--including his unfinished meditation on Psalm 119--reveals his deep love for the Bible as a focus for his prayer life and a support in his courageous political life. "Why do I meditate? "asks Bonhoeffer. "Because I am a Christian. Therefore, every day in which I do not penetrate more deeply into the knowledge of God's Word in Holy Scripture is a lost day for me."

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer - theologian, pastor, martyr - is one of the most significant Christian witnesses of the twentieth century. His writings challenge us to address the presence of God in the world and history. His courageous resistance against Hitler, his imprisonment and execution dramatize "the cost of discipleship." These selections, with a poignant introduction by Robert Coles, provide a penetrating entry to the heart of Bonhoeffer's message."--Jacket

Spiritual care by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )
3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bonhoeffer says spiritual care is a function of the congregation and that it is an aspect of the broader, more encompassing activity of proclamation. In Spiritual Care, we are confronted with the awesome truth that in speech God's presence is known and that speech is also our own; in silence God's presence is known and that silence is also our own. The text demands us to consider how the gospel message is brought to people in the midst of their personal lives, and his message and counsel use the tools given within the traditional life of the church so that such grace becomes enacted, enfleshed, and incarnate in the Christian community

8 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dietrich Bonhoeffer was an important theologian, biblical interpreter, pastor, ecumenist, and leader in the Confessing Church in Germany during the Nazi period. His writings and the example of his life continue to speak to people from many backgrounds." "Here, for the first time in English is Sanctorum Communio in its entirety, including all material omitted from the original 1930 German publication. Bonhoeffer's doctoral dissertation sets out the theology of sociality that informed all his work, engaging social philosophy and sociology to interpret the church as "Christ existing as church-community." Here are the roots of his commitment to the Confessing Church and the ecumenical movement, and of his actions in the resistance movement for the sake of peace and Germany's future."--Jacket
