This book features previously untranslated writings, sermons, and selections from his letters spanning his entire pastoral-theological career, including his prison letters

8 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 322 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

"In this book, a physician, well-known for praying with his patients, and an award-winning professor of theology share their insights on how religious faith can provide help in the healing processes of today's health care ministry. The authors avoid rehashing analytical theories on suffering and the 'miracles' of healing they may have seen, instead examining how personal faith can enhance the immune system, how a spiritual outlook can help bear the burden of suffering and grief, and how forbearance and forgiveness are crucial in maintaining a healthy attitude toward life"--Jacket

The stimulus for the writing of Life Together was the closing of the preacher's seminary at Finkenwalde. The treatise contains Bonhoeffer's thoughts about the nature of Christian community based on the common life that he and his seminarians experienced at the seminary and in the "Brother's House" there. Bonhoeffer completed the writing of Life Together in 1938. Prayerbook of the Bible is a classic of Christian spirituality. In this theological interpretation of the Psalms, Bonhoeffer describes the moods of an individual's relationship with God and also the turns of love and heartbreak, of joy and sorrow, that are themselves the Christian community's path to God
