“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.” —Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a committed pacifist, left his native Germany in 1939 to avoid conscription, which would have entailed swearing an oath to Hitler and fighting in his army. He came to think of that decision as a sort of flight; after just four weeks, he returned to Germany on the last steamer to make the crossing. There he contributed bravely to the resistance; eventually captured, he was hanged on April 9, 1945. Bonhoeffer, by New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas, presents this remarkably orthodox theologian’s profound moral courage and extraordinary faith.
Metaxas’ Bonhoeffer Tour begins February 8 in Williamsville, NY. And through a partnership with the tour, Thomas Nelson, GototheHub.com, and Food for the Hungry, you can win Logos 5 Gold, an iPad Mini, and copies of Metaxas’ Bonhoeffer and Seven Men!
Seven Men, Metaxas’ latest book, profiles Bonhoeffer, George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson. Metaxas asks: What does it look like to—as a leader, father, brother, husband, coach, counselor, change agent, or wise man—be a true role model?
Entry closes April 6, and we’ll select the winner April 8. If you win and you already own Logos 5, Bonhoeffer, and/or Seven Men, you’ll get Logos.com credit in place of the prizes.
