The cost of discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

292 editions published between 1928 and 2016 in 13 languages and held by 4,223 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."

Meditating on the Word by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."

48 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer here gives on of his secrets behind the powerful witness of his own life. He had learned to pray the Psalms and from them drew on the power of God in his years of imprisonment. In this introduction, Bonhoeffer discusses the various types of Psalms and how they can be used to enrich our prayer life. In a brief biographical sketch, Eberhard Bethge, friend and biographer of the author, helps us understand the man who used the Psalms as his prayer book."--

Spiritual care by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 412 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

Presented here in a new translation and a new arrangement, it is based on intensive study of the original manuscripts.

The life and death of Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Mary Bosanquet( Book )

5 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's been said that Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the most quoted theologian in the modern world. Certainly since his death Bonhoeffer's writings have had a wide and stimulating influence, and the questions with which he wrestled during his last days in prison have proved to be among the most profound and disturbing of our time. But the intensely lived and highly individual life out of which his words were born, little more than the basic facts are known. Here is the first full life of Bonhoeffer, which throws light not only upon the man, but also upon the catastrophic political and religious events that made his life both a tragedy and a
