Sintesi dell'editore

What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between "cheap grace" and "costly grace." "Cheap grace," Bonhoeffer wrote, "is the grace we bestow on ourselves...grace without discipleship....Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know....It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life."

The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.

Get this book

Wow! Bonhoeffer presents very practical, insightful and challenging ideas. I have a BA in Theology and am working on two Masters Degrees, and I have not encountered an analysis of church history and Christ's teachings like this before. Get this book; you won't be listening just once!

Timeless

After reading a collection of what are considered to be the top 100 books on Christian theology, this book is not only very thorough, but absolutely the finest written paraphase to Jesus Christ's message to his followers on discipleship.

Excellent Book

If you could sum up The Cost of Discipleship in three words, what would they be?

profound, needed, the truth

What did you like best about this story?

Bonhoeffer reviews how Christianity got to where it was when he lived in the 1930s, and shows how it was reduced to only a creed.

Which scene was your favorite?

This is a doctrinal book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It is too weighty.

Any additional comments?

It is just as relevant today as it was in Hitler's Germany. This should be required reading for anyone who professes to be a Christian.

Excellent Content - Not the best format

This is very good, but too deep for the audio format. I felt like I was drinking fine cognac from a fire hose - simply the wrong media for the content.

If you have read the book before, this might be a good way to revisit it. Otherwise I'd suggest buying the book instead. Still, the narration is very good and the content is wonderful, so I gave it a four.

Deep, Detailed and Descriptive.

This is a complex, deep description of a disciple. He uses a multitude of scripture and explanation. Very well done and the reader did an excellent job.

Have to pay attention

This book was good but is not an easy listen. Don't plan on getting anything out of it if you have to do any other tasks while listening

Way easier to listen to then to Read

Any additional comments?

This book is the book that lead me to audible.com The way the author writes was just to advance/ hard or whatever. I had to get in a quite space and with no distraction just to comprehend.<br/>So I searched for a audio book and I found it. Its a lot easier to listen to.
