Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Instead of the usual "gentle Jesus, meek and mild," Bonhoeffer’s writings ask the reader to think deeply about the meaning of the incarnation in light of a world that is fallen, dangerous, and hostile to God’s kingdom.

About the Author

Translator and editor, Edwin H. Robertson was born in London, England, in 1912, of Scottish parents. For many years he was involved in broadcasting and communications. He is the author of a number of books, notably on the Bible, broadcasting, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He is the minister of Heath Street Baptist Church in Hampstead, London, England.

More About the Author

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was born in Breslau in 1906. The son of a famous German psychiatrist, he studied in Berlin and New York City. He left the safety of America to return to Germany and continue his public repudiation of the Naz*s, which led to his arrest in 1943. Linked to the group of conspirators whose attempted assassination of Hitlerr failed, he was hanged in April 1945.

Format: Hardcover
Although reading sermons from the different phases of ministry in the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer is fun and enlightening, the book is mistitled. This book is packaged to sell at this time of year. At best, the Bonhoeffer material is from Advent, not Christmas, and even then, several pieces are not even Advent sermons.

The compilation as it is currently titled is designed to sell this time of year, shame on you Zondervan, and what is lost is the true content - a random list of sermons and devotionals piecing together the growth of Bonhoeffer in his different ministry settings. That should have been enough to sell the book.

A more apt title would have been something like, Tracing the Ministries of Dietrich Bonhoeffer with an Advent Emphasis.

The sermons are good because they are Bonheoffer, but Zondarvan's deceptive packaging of a bunch of non-advent and 2 christmas sermons together under the label Christmas Sermons is just wrong. This was a complete waste of money for what I purchased it for. Why not lump a bunch of sermons on Easter together and call them sermons for thanksgiving!

This was a very well written and organized book. A great lesson from our history on the impact of the Gospel on a man in a nation in crisis.

This was part of an Advent Study, by my Bishop, C. Andrew Doyle. I'm a huge fan of Bonhoeffer's and this particular study was both interactive with the Bishop via podcast, but was a focus on Dietrich's particular ability to deliver a sermon, in the midst of chaos going on around him. I would recommend this to anyone who appreciates a well organized and powerful sermon.

This should be a must for reading during Advent. Our church reading group did this and it was a great choice. The sermons are long enough to keep you reading for a nice bit each time, but not so long that you feel trapped into getting to a good stopping point. The organization was great, and I felt the progression of the times as well as the timeless pull to Christ.

Bonhoeffer's sermons are thought provoking. These are inspirational sermons written in a dark time of world history. they are very thought provoking.
