I became fascinated by Dietrich Bonhoeffer after reading Eric Metaxas' excellent biography of him a couple of years ago. These two books of Bonhoeffer add weight to the sense of alignment and fellowship I feel with him.
Life Together is a thought-provoking discussion of an area that the American church desperately needs to reclaim - the need for true community in the body of Christ. We were not meant to live in the individualistic way that most of us do - we need our brothers and sisters in Christ and Bonhoeffer profoundly describes why and what that could look like.
The Prayerbook of the BIble is a brief but challenging introduction to the use of the Psalms in our prayers. His idea that the Psalms represent Christ's own prayers and that by praying the Psalms we join Christ in prayer deserves further consideration.
Definitely worth a read. ( )

One of my all-time favorite, life-changing books. Bonhoeffer's practical reflections of living in Christian community has profoundly shaped my own understanding of how we are to relate to one another, "as if Christ stands between us". ( )

Bonhoeffer presents his views on what it means to be in true Christian community. It is not easy and not what we necessarily expect, but the ideal is worth pondering and pursuing. ( )
