Book Reading Goal : Week 41

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, SpyThe 34th book read in the last two weeks is also perhaps the very best I have read for sometime. The book in question is Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas. At 591 pages it was worth every word!  It is hard for me to describe this book without doing some injustice to it.  The book truly opened a window to a dark era of human history in which one light shown brightly before all others. One quote sums up Bonhoeffer's life : "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil : God will not hold us guiltless. Not 2 speak is 2 speak. Not 2 act is 2 act". May we know the full meaning of these words!
