[book review: bonhoeffer by eric metaxas]

I wanted to read this book for a long time, ever since I’ve read about it on Bill’s (Cycleguy) blog. So when I saw the student edition available on BookLookBloggers, I jumped at the opportunity.

I love background stories and this book is structured in such a way as to tell the personal story of Dietrich’s life, including stories of his family. Bonhoeffer was a man young people always followed and this student edition has been masterfully adapted for that target audience.

Another convenient thing was the inclusion of questions at the end of each chapter, so it makes it easy to use this book for group meetings and discussion.

I have read the Kindle version of the book and I have to say that while printed book is probably filled with little side notes and trivia, in e-book format, the layout goes a bit awry, so this is something to keep in mind. However, the book is so good that you won’t really care for occasional random lines.

I am still in the process of reading the book, but I have a feeling that I would really soon finish it 🙂 I highly recommend this book – especially if you have young friends or family members. A hardcover version of the book would be a great gift for someone who is about to choose his path in life.
