Cliff, be sure to read the Schlingensiepen bio of Bonhoeffer. It presents a much more balanced and truer to Bonhoeffer presentation.

Thanks for the tip, Bob. I've read Bonhoeffer, but never a complete biography ABOUT Bonhoeffer, so wasn't sure where to start. A friend had passed this along to me (he's an economist, though, not a historian LoL), so I thought I'd take a look at it. But if I'm going to just read one biography of Bonhoeffer, sounds like it should probably be Schlingensiepen...

Cliff, yes Schlingensiepen is quite good. He's not a journalist like Metaxas, but he's a life long student of Bonhoeffer's writings and friend of Eberhard Bethge, who was Bonhoeffer's close friend and primary biographer. I found it quite good and true to the Bonhoeffer I've known from his books.
Hope all's well in Oregon!! We're waiting for the rain to end.
