A massive biography of an incredible man. Although not for the casual inquirer into Bonhoeffer's life (A Spoke in the Wheel is much better for this) it contains information that you will not find in any other source. In my opinion it is well worth the hours spent in reading to encounter in such a full way the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and to give a fuller context to his work than even the comments in the Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Works editions are able to do.

Eberhard Bethge's exhaustive biography of Bonhoeffer is recognized throughout the world as the definitive biography. Victoria Barnett has now reviewed the entire translation for this edition, correcting hundreds of mistakes and omissions, and adding in sections from the German, for example, on Bonhoeffer's childhood, that have never before appeared in English.

"Some words Gorky used about Tolstoy come into my mind: 'Look what a wonderful man is living on this earth!' . . . Bethge has produced a monumental study of him which will surely stand as the definitive and authoritative work on the subject. Reading . . . it is a spiritual experience." Malcolm Muggeridge, The Observers ( )
