Who better to face the greatest evil of the 20th century than a humble man of faith? As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a pastor and author. In this New York Times bestselling biography, Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer's life--the theologian and the spy--and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. In Bonhoeffer, Metaxas presents the fullest account of Bonhoeffer's life, including his: heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler's Germany involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in "Operation 7," the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland lifelong dedication to sharing the tenets of his faith This edition, revised and with a new introduction from the author, shares the deeply moving story through previously unavailable documents, including personal letters, detailed journal entries, and firsthand personal accounts to reveal never-before-seen dimensions of Bonhoeffer's life and work. Praise for Bonhoeffer: "Metaxas has created a biography of uncommon power--intelligent, moving, well researched, vividly written, and rich in implication for our own lives. Or to put it another way: Buy this book. Read it. Then buy another copy and give it to a person you love. It's that good." --Archbishop Charles Chaput, author, First Things "Metaxas tells Bonhoeffer's story with passion and theological sophistication." —Wall Street Journal "Metaxas presents Bonhoeffer as a clear-headed, deeply convicted Christian who submitted to no one and nothing except God and his Word." --Christianity Today "Metaxas has written a book that adds a new dimension to World War II, a new understanding of how evil can seize the soul of a nation and a man of faith can confront it." --Thomas Fleming, author, The New Dealers’ War

As tropas nazistas avançavam pela Europa, ameaçando estender seus domínios sobre todas as nações. Numa época em que se calar era a melhor forma de se expressar e se omitir era a mais acertada ação, um pastor, com reconhecido talento e prodigiosa capacidade intelectual, viveu seu chamado como forma de servir a seu país. Em 1939, vivendo nos EUA, a salvo do regime nazista, sua paixão por seu povo o levou de volta à Alemanha. Sua capacidade política e carisma o tornaram uma ameaça a Hitler e lhe custaram o exílio em Berlim. Proibido de falar, escrever e publicar, Dietrich Bonhoeffer decide vestir a máscara de pastor patriota submisso ao Reich e passa a ser um agente duplo. Trabalhando na Abwehr, agência de inteligência do regime nazista e sabotando ordens e ações de guerra nazistas, ele salva milhares de vidas e impede os planos de Hitler, enquanto, junto a seus companheiros, trama a queda do Führer. Descoberto pela Gestapo, Bonhoeffer é preso e, num 9 de abril de 1945 - semanas antes da queda do Terceiro Reich - termina sua luta para salvar conterrâneos e judeus da cólera ariana, sendo enforcado por ordem direta de Adolf Hitler. Bonhoeffer - pastor, mártir, profeta, espião, biografia escrita por Eric Metaxas, traça o perfil profundo e cuidadosamente detalhado de um dos teólogos alemães mais importantes desde Lutero e uma das figuras principais da resistência contra o regime nazista. Inspirativo, desafiador e emocionante, Bonhoeffer é o relato instigante do que um homem pode fazer movido por amor ao próximo e contra a injustiça de um regime totalitário. Um livro para ser lido e discutido por todos que acreditam na liberdade e no dever de lutar para que essa liberdade alcance a todos.

"For facination, influence, inspiration, and controversy, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Letters and Papers from Prison is unmatched by any other book of Christian reflection written in the twentieth century. A Lutheran pastor and theologian, Bonhoeffer spent two years in Nazi prisons before being executed at age thirty-nine for his role in the plot to kill Hitler. Ever since it was published in 1951, Letters and Papers from Prison has had a tremendous impact on Christian and secular thought, and has helped establish Bonhoeffer's reputation as one of the most important Protestant thinkers of the twentieth century. In this, the first history of the book's remarkable global career ... writer Martin Marty tells how and why Letters and Papers from Prison has been read and used in such dramatically different ways, from the Cold War to today."--

"A critical engagement of the ecumenical movement's approach to ethical and economic issues, Ecumenical Babel updates a line of criticism articulated by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Paul Ramsey, and Ernest W. Lefever. Arguing for the continuing importance of Christian ecumenism, Jordan J. Ballor seeks to correct the errors created by the imposition of economic ideology onto the social witness of ecumenical Christianity as represented by the Lutheran World Federation, the newly formed World Communion of Reformed Churches, and the World Council of Churches. Ecumenical Babel is a voice for sustained ecumenical dialogue, vital ecclesiastical witness, and individual Christian conscience"--Back cover.
