Abstract:

In 'The Martyred Christian', bestselling Christian author Joan Winmill Brown brings together selected writings from the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the courageous young German theologian executed by the Nazis for his participation in a plot to assassinate Hitler. Bonhoeffer called upon his fellow Christians to recognize that their mission must be in the real world--"not in the seclusion of the cloistered life but in the thick of foes". And in these 160 readings on subjects ranging from marriage, good works, and vocations to shame, forgiveness, and the Church, today's Christians will find a voice that is as compassionate as it is demanding. An excellent introduction for those who are not acquainted with Dietrich Bonhoeffer's thoughts, 'The Martyred Christian' will also provide those already familiar with Bonhoeffer's works an opportunity for deeper reflection on and new insights into their faith.
