I had high expectations of this book and have wanted to read it for some time as it has always been high on the "must read" list of Christian books. However I found it to be way over towards the law/works end of the "Grace vs Law" continuum which was a big disappointment for me and my antinomian tendencies.
A useful guide for getting the most out of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's famous 'The Cost of Discipleship' although it is possible to fully appreciate the book without the guide I did find it useful for summing up the last three chapters which I found to be a bit of a slog.

“Being saved by discipleship is not a human possibility, but for God all things are possible.”
“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” No rights they might claim protect this community of strangers in the world. Nor do they claim any such rights, for they are the meek, who renounce all rights of their own for the sake of Jesus Christ. When they are berated, they are quiet. When violence is done to them, they endure it. When they are cast out, they yield.  They do not sue for their rights; they do not make a scene when injustice is done them. They do not want rights of their own. They want to leave all justice to God; non cupidi vindictae [not desirous of vengeance]  is the interpretation of the early church. What is right for their Lord should be right for them. Only that.”More quotes…
