Strange Glory: A Life Of Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Charles Marsh (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2014) A few years ago, I read Bonhoeffer, by Eric Metaxas. I was very impressed with the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. When I saw this new biography, I grabbed a copy as soon as I could. It’s very different so far, from Metaxas’ work. Marsh deals more with the intellectual and theological aspects of Bonhoeffer’s life, where Metaxas spent mor»

Eric Metaxas should have written the history books I read in school. The biography, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, is dense with detail, but it reads like the story it was.
