It is a pity that today Dietrich Bonhoeffer is solely seen as a member of resistance against the Nazis. The main aim of his life was the reformation of the German Evangelical Church. Bonhoeffer’s conspiracy was a consequence of his Christian discipleship and part of it, but conspiracy had not been the first aim of his life. The public perceives Bonhoeffer more and more solely as an agent, but that is wrong. The Third Reich is over, but the problems of the Church are still present. To solve the problems of the Church, we must focus on Bonhoeffer in his quality as theologian and Christian.
Bonhoeffer offers a lot of solutions for many problems. The works he left behind are a real treasure. I want to recommend his book “The Cost of Discipleship”, which is one of the best books I know.
