The cost of discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

287 editions published between 1937 and 2016 in 13 languages and held by 4,212 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."
Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

174 editions published between 1949 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 3,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central theme of Bonhoeffer's "Ethics" is the concept of Christian citizenship in terms of confrontation to Christ. He is concerned about all with the way in which 'Christ takes form' within the society of the Church, and with man's reconciliation to God through the person and the work of Christ. Bonhoeffer's revolutionary theolory is far removed from the purely theoretical, and these uncompleted papers, which were recovered from hiding after his tragic death at the hands of the Nazis in 1945, are based firmly on the real man in the real world

Meditating on the Word by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 759 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."

Spiritual care by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 411 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

Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Called by Karl Barth "the brilliant Ethics of Dietrich Bonhoeffer," this book is finally being recognized as Bonhoeffer's magnum opus and one of the most important works of Christian ethics of the last century. Presented here in a new translation and a new arrangement, it is based on intensive study of the original manuscripts. Bonhoeffer's Ethics is copiously annotated with historical notes and editorial commentary that reveal the theological basis of his radical critique of Nazi policies and practices."--Jacket
Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cheap grace is the mortal enemy of our Church. Our struggle today is for costly grace." With this sharp warning to his own Church, engaged in bitter conflict with the official Nazified state Church, Bonhoeffer began his classic book Discipleship (formerly entitled The cost of discipleship). This book soon became a signal exposition of what it means to follow Jesus Christ in a modern world beset by a dangerous and criminal government. At its centre stands an interpretation of the Sermon on the Mount: what Jesus demanded of his followers and how the life of discipleship is to be continued in all ages of the Church. "Every call of Jesus is a call to death," Bonhoeffer wrote
The life and death of Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Mary Bosanquet( Book )

4 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and French and held by 4 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
