"Who better to face the greatest evil of the 20th century than a humble man of faith?
As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer-- a pastor and author, known as much for his spiritual classics and 'The Cost of Discipleship and Life Together', as for his 1945 execution in a concentration camp for his part in the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler." -Eric Metaxas
" At the appointed hour, the old couple turned on their radio. Soon enough the service was announced for their son. That was how they came to know of his death.
As the couple took in the hard news that the good man who was their son was now dead, so too, many English took in the hard news that the dead man who was a German was good. Thus did the world again begin to reconcile itself to itself.
The man who died was engaged to be married. He was a pastor and a theologian. And he was executed for his role in the plot to assassinate Hitler.
This is his story."
