Title: Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
Author: Eric Metaxas
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Biography 

Eric Metaxas’s “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” is the best biography I ever read. It consists of many facts about Dietrich Bonhoeffer I was unaware of. This book contains a lot more than Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the greatest theologian in the history, a believer of God and a Hero. Metaxas takes us from the early childhood of Bonhoeffer to his martyrdom in a sequence of chronological events which erects in front of us the complete world of that time. The author has done a tremendous research work which is portrayed in the book by involvement of Bonhoeffer’s letters to the family and friends and interviews of the people who lived at that time and experienced such an influential personality in the history.
Bonhoeffer’s life sets an example to know the will of God through the medium of world and making a true sense out of it. In a world of evil and sins he stood against the Hitler and Nazis and sacrificed his life for the path of truth on which he believed. He was accused of involvement in a conspiracy against Hitler but he was stood against the evil at the time when the church failed to sustain.
Every aspect of Bonhoeffer’s life is beautifully pictured in these 544 pages, giving all the events that mould his character and beliefs. Whether you are a fan of biographies or not, this is truly a must read.
Rating: 5/5
