it was amazing

Perhaps it is because it has taken me many months of reading just a few pages every Sunday to reach the end of this book, it has become very dear to me. The ideas it has helped me wrestle with and the challenge it gives me to live an active and sacrificial faith make it worth the time spent in its pages.

Do I agree with Bonhoeffer on everything? No, but there was room for plenty of dialogue between us as I followed his thinking and challenged my own.

Ideas I will continue to ruminate on are: costly grace vs. cheap grace, the interrelated nature of belief and obedience, the desirability that my good works will be visible to others but invisible to me, the coexistence of faith and good works.

An immediate re-read would be welcome and may be imminent!
