Item description for The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer...

Overview
One of the most important theologians of the twentieth century illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cost Of Discipleship?

Still chillingly relevant and amazingly challenging  Mar 8, 2007
Every time I read this book it challenges me to reexamine my life and rethink my priorities. Bonhoeffer's voice carries weight because he lived the way he preaches.
 
What is cheap Grace ?, what is costly Grace ? ... What does being a Disciple mean ?  Feb 7, 2007
Please do not vote yet. I need to review some of the chapters, before I finish the review. Thank you!

INTRODUCTION:

AUTHOR:
The 6th of 8 children intellectual German turn of the 20th century family, theologian, a pastor, a renewed child of God, a pacifist, a collaborator, A martyr for Christ at the hands of the Nazis. Today he is remembered, as an inspiration for Christians and non-Christians - a testament to the power of the Gospel lived out in every stage and trial of life. Up there with C.S. Lewis, he seems to be one of the most widely read and known modern writer. For me, he is my favorite theologian (a pragmatist at heart). One whose love to pastor the local parish and lead youth groups did hinder him from contemplatively writing about his struggles and God's "costly Grace" (to use one of his expressions).

CONCLUSION:
 
a call to true discipleship in the 21st century  Jan 4, 2007
wonderful. a must read by everyone who says they follow and trust in Jesus, the Christ, the Anointed One of God, the Father. what does it really mean to follow Him, obey Him, love Him with one's whole life? Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Cost of Discipleship will help one and to really consider the cost of following Him.
 
Clarion Call!  Dec 8, 2006
Oh, how we need to repent of cheap grace and take up the Cross of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! What would Bonhoeffer think of the seeker/mega churches..............cheap grace indeed! Just look at Saddleback!
