This volume in the ever-popular WJK Armchair series turns its sights on contemporary theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906'¿¿1945). Born in Breslau, Germany, Bonhoeffer led an intriguing life. Along with dozens of illustrations by artist Ron Hill, this small book highlights Bonhoeffer'¿¿s background and theological education; his time at Union Seminary in New York City; his involvement in the resistance movement against Adolf Hitler; and his participation in the plot to assassinate Hitler. Eventually Bonhoeffer was imprisoned by the Nazis, who hanged him in 1945 but, thankfully, his ideas did not die with him. His life and thought continue to have an enduring impact on Christianity even today.
