Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church and longtime friend and mentor to Walker, said Walker's first book on Bonhoeffer, Costly Grace, "may be one of the most important books published during this time of economic uncertainty and world turmoil."

Much of the biographical dilemmas the author experienced were during the research and writing for his other books "Costly Grace: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship" and "Invisible Fellowship: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer's Classic Work Life Together".
While experiencing these trials of faith the author would spend time reflecting on his personal crisis of faith in his Christian walk and then reflect on God's word and pour over the classic writings of Bonhoeffer and see how they applied to the struggle at hand.
What I found refreshing and inspiring was the author's openness when discussing his own personal struggles with divorce, miscarriages, depression, suffering and grief. I found myself encouraged, entertained and inspired many times as Walker reminds us of the relevance still today of God's Word and the writings of Bonhoeffer. But also as I read the book I wanted to read more of the primary sources written by the martyred German Lutheran pastor, Bonhoeffer.Read more ›
In this book, we find Bonhoeffer's amazing gifts and transforming story entirely relevant to our culture. Walker compels the ordinary Christian to become fully and radically changed. I found myself inspired, entertained, and many times in tears by this compelling book. I have been thoroughly challenged by this book to walk away from the way I do life now so that I can follow Jesus down an exclusive path.
If life has dealt you a devastating blow such as divorce, miscarriages, addiction, depression, or grief I urge you to purchase this book. You will be encouraged and strengthened to more fully understand that the very things that frighten and devastate us are the very things God uses to shape us into useful vessels.
When we think we can't carry the burdens of our story both Bonhoeffer and Walker remind us that through Jesus, we are stronger than we think.
After you ready Breakfast with Bonhoeffer, I'm sure you will want to buy this book for a friend or two who need to know that they are not alone.
