Bonhoeffer, Eric Metaxas
Having read Cost of Discipleship and other Bonhoeffer works, I thought I had a handle on the man.
Was I ever mistaken!
Metaxas’ work has opened my eyes and motivated me to re-visit and re-consider what I have read. (Do I hear the resonance of “too soon old, and too late smart”?)
For those who know me intimately and my struggles in the mid 80s, Bonhoeffer’s struggles, in terms of ethics, really resonates. How I identify with him and wonder why God, in His sovereignty kept this awareness from me during that time frame?
Read the book…as I intend a re-read in the days ahead.
Applicability of his message?
That is for you to determine
