Para ele, ficou evidente a necessidade de criticar o que chamou de "graça barata", que, "em vez de justificar o pecador, justifica o pecado". Ou seja, a postura que a Igreja assume ao inverter todo o esforço dos reformadores sintetizado na doutrina da justificação pela fé mediante o sacrifício na cruz de Cristo. Justamente por isso, "a graça barata é a inimiga mortal de nossa Igreja". Foi contra esse tipo de graça que os esforços de Bonhoeffer se direcionaram, reiterando enfaticamente a verdadeira vida em comunidade, na qual o discipulado é visto como compromisso radical de obediência a Cristo — mesmo que implique a morte, não apenas do velho ser humano, mas do próprio discípulo.
Though caught up in the vortex of momentous forces in the Nazi period, Bonhoeffer systematically envisioned a radically Christocentric, incarnational ethic for a post-war world, purposefully recasting Christians' relation to history, politics, and public life.
This edition allows scholars, theologians, ethicists, and serious Christians to appreciate the cogency and relevance of Bonhoeffer's vision.
Dieses Buch ist zu einem der großen Klassiker der christlichen Literatur geworden.
Ist das ein geistlicher Kommentar zur Bergpredigt? Eine kirchenkritische Reformschrift? Eine Grundlegung der Ekklesiologie? Bonhoeffer hat jedenfalls unmittelbar aus den neutestamentlichen Quellen geschöpft und dabei ebenso „tiefe“ wie „anstößige“ Einsichten gewonnen. Wer Christentum als „niederschwelliges Angebot“ auffassen möchte, wird an der Lektüre wenig Freude haben. Meint aber einer, er habe es im Christ-Sein schon weit gebracht – so wird ihn dieses Buch rasch heilen.
Ein Buch das aneckt, das herausfordert, das uns aber sicher nicht unberührt lässt und zum Nachdenken anregt.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century, illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus in this classic book on living as a Christian.
What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the government worker? 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.
This collection of inspirational writings from Dietrich Bonhoeffer is drawn from his many works and presented here as a series of daily meditations to last throughout the year. Organized under monthly themes, these prayers, sermons, meditations, letters, and notes offer readers a new glimpse at how Bonhoeffer understood the meaning of faith and discipleship. Featuring selections from classic works such as The Cost of Discipleship and Letters and Papers from Prison, this set of writings follows the church year, making it ideal for year-long devotional use by readers seeking to be challenged and enlightened by Bonhoeffer's call to find God at the center of their lives.
The stimulus for the writing of Life Together was the closing of the preacher's seminary at Finkenwalde. The treatise contains Bonhoeffer's thoughts about the nature of Christian community based on the common life that he and his seminarians experienced at the seminary and in the "Brother's House" there. Bonhoeffer completed the writing of Life Together in 1938.
