EXCERPTS: IN STRANGE GLORY
A LIFE OF DIETRICH BONHOEFFER 
by Charles Marsh

In this book the reader sees Bonhoeffer’s transformation from pampered scion and theological dilettante to energetic churchman and Christian martyr, all against the backdrop of cataclysmic changes in Germany. —The New York times Book Review

1938-1940

Bonhoeffer writes:

“I must be a Sojourner and a Stranger”

“I must not close my heart indifferent to the earth’s problems, sorrows, and joys; rather I am to wait patiently for the redemption of the divine promise–truly wait, and not rob myself of it in advance by wishing and dreaming.”
