40-Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer
introduces Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a well-known and courageous German theologian and Lutheran pastor, who during the Nazi period was imprisoned and killed and whose writings have inspired and influenced Christians around the world.
Beginning with a short introduction to Bonhoeffer's life, the book contains forty chapters that include a reading from Bonhoeffer's writings, one or more scripture selections from the Bible, a journal-writing exercise, and a prayer. By reflecting on selections from Bonhoeffer's writings, the reader will see how Bonhoeffer followed Jesus in a life of faith and service and will gain new insights into their own spiritual path. A rich resource for personal meditation or small group discussion, the book will be especially valuable for spiritual journeys during Advent or Lent.
