Salvation is free, but discipleship will cost you your life. —Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was born in Breslau, Germany in 1906. He was a Lutheran pastor who joined the German underground convinced that it was his duty as a Christian to work for Hitler’s defeat. Bonhoeffer was only thirty-nine when he died, but he had already made a monumental contribution to Christian thought, which today has profound and growing significance for all Christianity. His best-known books are: The Cost of Discipleship and Letters and Papers from Prison. He moved to America but felt God wanted him to return. He was eventually arrested and hanged by the Nazi’s in 1945!
