Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Deitrich Bonhoeffer was a young German theologian who offered one of the first clear voices of resistance to Adolph Hitler. Bonhoeffer openly challenged his church to stand with the Jews in their time of need, and eventually joined the plot to kill Hitler. Extensive research in the U.S and Europe brings to life this amazing story of moral courage. Extraordinary archival footage is interwoven with interviews with friends, family and students of Bonhoeffer, with historians and theologians, and with the words of Bonheoffer himself, read by Maria Klaus Brandauer.


A touching narrative on the nature of faith. Powerful, disturbing, and shocking. --New York Times

A valuable and complex portrait of a rare individual, who saw the light in a time of spiritual darkness, and had the courage to follow it. --Village Voice

Bonhoeffer shows how extraordinary courage can spring from unlikely sources. An inspiring portrait of one of the great moral heroes of the 20th century. Undeniably poignant and thought-provoking. --Minneapolis Star Tribune
