In the most basic of language, free from extremely technical theology, Bonhoeffer calls the believer back to a humility which Jesus modeled and proclaimed but which has, sadly, been lost in our Greek-based culture of self-actualization. Indeed, taking Bonhoeffer to heart can prove to be.a formidable challenge to the believer who desires to truly take this book to heart, as it runs counter to the pervasive message of self-love and self-glorification.
I would recommend this book to any believer who desires to know God, but who has experienced difficulty in coming into His presence, whether alone or in the presence of other believers.
He gives a lot of good theological backing for why christians do the things we need like confession, communion, meet in groups, meet for church, and read our Bibles. He doesn't settle for, "You should just do it, because thoughtfully and carefully explains the importance of these things while using Scripture to heavily back his thoughts.
Loved his simple and consice, as well as easy to read writing style. Cruised through this one in no time.
His love of people and his faith kept him going in a living hell on earth. God Bless him!!
