Dietrich Bonhoeffer: A Biography

by Eberhard Bethge. Fortress Press, 2000.

Bethge has written the definitive biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The book is exhaustive. The over 1000 pages of material details Bonhoeffer's life from childhood until his death in prison. Bethge was a friend of Bonhoeffer. So the book, while scholarly, pictures a three-dimensional figure written through the lens of friendship. Bethge speaks extensively in the documentary 'Bonhoeffer' by Journey Films. This volume is the most appropriate for clergy or other congregational professionals. (from Resource Guide in 4 pg format)
