"Pastor, theologian, resister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45) has been an influential theologian and inspiration for more than 60 years. This unique pictorial account of Bonhoeffer's life, family, and friends, and of the Germany in which he lived and died, is now available in a new edition with added photographs and a new design." "With more than 200 photos - including many portraits of Bonhoeffer's ancestors, family gatherings, press photos of contemporary events, maps, postcards, and newspaper accounts, posters, book jackets - this book gives the reader a real sense of Bonhoeffer's family context and the decisive times in which he lived and strove." "The twelve chapters in this volume recapture distinct periods in Bonhoeffer's life, setting events in his family against the tumultuous events in church, state, and the international scene. The brief accompanying texts provide essential information, but on the whole the pictures are allowed to speak for themselves. For those who know Bonhoeffer through his writings or even films about him, this centenary edition will introduce Bonhoeffer the man and the circle of family and friends who together with him faced fateful choices."--BOOK JACKET.

A WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER “Five gritty leaders whose extraordinary passion and perseverance changed history…a gripping read on a timeless and timely topic” —Angela Duckworth, #1 bestselling author of Grit An enthralling historical narrative filled with critical leadership insights, Forged in Crisis, by celebrated Harvard Business School historian Nancy Koehn, spotlights five masters of crisis: polar explorer Ernest Shackleton; President Abraham Lincoln; legendary abolitionist Frederick Douglass; Nazi-resisting clergyman Dietrich Bonhoeffer; and environmental crusader Rachel Carson. What do such disparate figures have in common? Why do their extraordinary stories continue to amaze and inspire? In delivering the answers to those questions, Nancy Koehn offers a remarkable template by which to judge those in our own time to whom the public has given its trust. She begins each of the book’s five sections by showing her protagonist on the precipice of a great crisis: Shackleton marooned on an Antarctic ice floe; Lincoln on the verge of seeing the Union collapse; escaped slave Douglass facing possible capture; Bonhoeffer agonizing over how to counter absolute evil with faith; Carson racing against the cancer ravaging her in a bid to save the planet. The narrative then reaches back to each person’s childhood and shows the individual growing—step by step—into the person he or she will ultimately become. Significantly, as we follow each leader’s against-all-odds journey, we begin to glean an essential truth: leaders are not born but made. In a book dense with epiphanies, the most galvanizing one may be that the power to lead courageously resides in each of us. Whether it’s read as a repository of great insight or as exceptionally rendered human drama, Forged in Crisis stands as a towering achievement.

Since Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s death in 1945, executed by the Nazis as a political dissident, he has continued to fascinate and compel readers as a theologian, witness, and martyr. Bonhoeffer’s theological brilliance, committed discipleship, ecumenical insight, and courageous participation in the struggle against fascism have profoundly shaped contemporary Christian understanding and action. In John W. de Gruchy’s estimate, had Bonhoeffer lived “he might have dominated the theological scene in the second half of the twentieth century in succession to Karl Barth, Rudolf Bultmann, and Paul Tillich. As it was, he became the paradigmatic martyr-theologian” for our time. In this new biography, Christiane Dietz masterfully portrays the interconnectedness of Bonhoeffer’s life and thought, theology and politics, discipleship, witness, and resistance, tracing the path from his childhood to his imprisonment and execution. Brief, lucid, and imminently accessible, Tietz’s new account brings Bonhoeffer’s story and work to life in a vivid retelling, unfolding his important and widely read texts, and including new, previously unseen pictures.

In the summer of 1933, Dietrich Bonhoeffer delivered powerful lectures that insisted Christians encounter Jesus Christ as a living person today, as well as in history and church life. Formulated in the face of the new Nazi regime, a decisive moment in Bonhoeffer's own commitment to the Confessing Church, his words drew attention to the living Christ as always the humiliated "man for others." This volume, well introduced and contextualized by Nessan and Wind, consists in excerpts from the 1933 lectures - strikingly relevant today - along with contemporary writings from Bonhoeffer and others.

Del autor de Amazing Grace, uno de los autores de mayor éxito editorial según el New York Times, llega esta biografía innovadora sobre Dietrich Bonhoeffer, uno de los más grandes héroes del siglo XX, el hombre que se irguió frente a Hitler. Una obra rigurosa y profundamente conmovedora, Bonhoeffer es una historia de coraje moral frente al horrendo mal que significó el Nazismo. Después de descubrir el fuego de la verdadera fe en la iglesia de Harlem, Bonhoeffer regresó a Alemania, y fue uno de los primeros en manifestarse contra Hitler. Siendo espía, formó parte de la conspiración para asesinar al Führer y fue ahorcado en el campo de concentración de Flossenberg a los 39 años. Después de su muerte, Bonhoeffer ha llegado a ser una de las figuras más complejas y fascinantes del siglo XX. Bonhoeffer muestra a un teólogo cristiano totalmente ortodoxo cuya fe lo llevó a enfrentar atrevidamente al mayor mal del siglo XX, y deja al descubierto hechos nunca antes revelados, incluyendo la historia de su apasionado romance.
