Dietrich Bonhoeffer's demanding book is mandantory for any professing christian{i think he would sqirm at that term.}The idea that one would be "saved" simply by saying so is repugnant to one who saw what was coming.Read some popular "religious" christian literature,then read Bonhoeffer.You will realize that he is speaking of a completely different faith,never mind religion.No fuzzy new-age garbage here.I cannot imagine an adult who would not be troubled by Bonhoeffer,for there seems to be no distinction between what he said, and what he did.Would that be true for all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cheap Grace and Difficult Choices, 21. Mai 2000
Von 
Robert H. Nunnally Jr. "gurdonark" (Allen, TX United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Cost of Discipleship (Taschenbuch)
Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Cost of Discipleship explores the challenges of embracing the gospel theme of sacrifice. In a direct, sometimes harsh assessment, he points up the difficulty of actually living a creed which embraces sacrifice of the individual believer called to task by the divine.
The phrase "cheap grace" remains the watch-phrase of the work. "Cheap grace" refers to the counterfeit self-acceptance the would-be believer experiences, and is discussed in sharp contrast to the genuine experience caused by the demands of the Christian faith. Bonhoeffer cautions us against 'easy religion' and mere emotive response to the Christian message. He portrays Christian life as demanding unflinching self-awareness and struggle, culiminating in surrender.
In later writings, Bonhoeffer himself modified the viewpoints he set forth in the Cost of Discipleship. An argument can be made that the work's stringent tone fails to convey the richness of the Christian life to which his book seeks to call adherents.
Nonetheless, Bonhoeffer's construct of "cheap grace" serves as a useful metaphor in a time in which materialism, inequity, and disconnection plague us. We may not choose Pastor Bonhoeffer's iron-clad distinctions as to what constitutes authentic spiritual experience, but we will not easily forget his call to embrace the genuine, and not merely counterfeit assuaged feelings for genuine spiritual experience.
Although this is a work of theology accessible to most readers, it is never patronizing in tone. Although one would have only a limited vision of Bonhoeffer's work if one read only the Cost of Discipleship, this is an excellent first Bonhoeffer book to read. The Cost of Discipleship is not a radical work, but rather a work of then-mainstream Christianity intended to provoke the reader into action. Even if one cannot reach all of Bonhoeffer's conclusions, and even if one does not share Bonhoeffer's theology, the inquiry is certainly worth undertaking.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The price to be paid..., 6. Februar 2006
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Cost of Discipleship (Taschenbuch)
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one who knew of that which he spoke when dealing with the issue of cheap grace versus costly grace. Bonhoeffer's commitment to the principles of his vocation and being cost him his life - executed in the closing days of World War II, Bonhoeffer walked a dangerous path through exercising his vocation faithfully in the midst of the twin evils of warfare and Nazi domination of Germany.
Bonhoeffer's life, from the earliest days, probably seemed like it was set on an idyllic path - the son of a professional family with strong roots in a prosperous and civilised culture, Bonhoeffer would seem to have 'had it made'. His early days in school showed him to be a minister and academic of great promise. However, his experiences at Union Seminary in New York City, an academic environment very different from the German academy, and at the Abyssian Baptist Church, an African-American congregation, vastly different from his Germanic Lutheran background, prepared a way for Bonhoeffer to expand beyond his upbringing and learning to become someone striving to find God in all people, and the will of God in all that he did.
The subject of this book is grace - too often, in Bonhoeffer's day and our own, people seem to look at grace as something free, instead of something freely offered. Bonhoeffer points out that the call of God and the gift of God's grace is not to be taken lightly - 'the call to follow Jesus always leads to death'. This may seem an unusual call in our day; after all, the more prosperous of our churches would seem to espouse a conventionally respectable lifestyle (far from the 'death' Bonhoeffer speaks about) as the reward for following God. However, Bonhoeffer uses the example of the disciples, each of whom faced martyrdom, as did many early Christian leaders, as a touchstone for the vocation.
Bonhoeffer also gives a great deal of attention in this text to the Sermon on the Mount, providing interpretations that still speak to congregations today, but also with warnings. Bonhoeffer admonishes those who would pick and choose the parts of scripture, or indeed the parts of the Sermon on the Mount, that fit what they want to hear, disregarding the rest. Bonhoeffer writes that we are not called to interpret, but to obey, giving ourselves up to God, as the disciples did, as martyrs did, and as Bonhoeffer himself would do in the fullness of his lifetime.
This edition of Bonhoeffer's great work is prefaced by his friend, Bishop G.K.A. Bell of Chichester, a friend and admirer of Bonhoeffer, who states that, 'Dietrich himself was a martyr many times before he died'. There is also a memoir provided by G. Leibholz, which puts the text in historical context. However, the real substance of the book is in Bonhoeffer's own words. Cheap grace was the deadly enemy of the church then, and it remains a dangerous foe to this day.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Cost Of Discipleship - PeterSmith Pub Hardcover, 7. Mai 2000
Von 
Glen (Duncanville, TX, United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cost of Discipleship (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The purchase of the Hardcover edition by publisher Peter Smith was to replace my paperback copy from 1974, which has fallen apart from use and age. For me, The Cost of Discipleship is among the most profound and spiritual disturbing books I have read. It is Christianity for adults only. This edition failed to meet my expectations of a quality hardback. While it may barely last me until my death I had wanted a copy in which I had placed my notations to pass on to my sons. Except for the hardcover this edition is of paperback quality including acid paper and glued in pages. Purchase The Cost of Discipleship if you are willing to chance having a superficial faith illuminated, but purchase it in paperback or in a different hardcover edition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Do you believe what you believe?, 14. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Cost of Discipleship (Taschenbuch)
There are some books that leave a person humble and still. Books that make one look deep within themselves and force on to answer hard questions that most avoid.
In the Foeward we read: "When Christ calls a man, says Dietrich Bonhoeffer,"he bids him come and die". As the we are reminded this man was a martyr many times before he died. And in reading this book I never felt such an intimate bond with someone I had never met before. Or a more intimate bond with G~d. It was if I was being allowed into a dialogue and being forced to watch and being forced to ask myself just what am I willing to die for? My faith in G~d? The book forces you to take that burning, not so pleasant look at whether one mouths the words or actually believes what they say. Reading the Who Am I poem he wrote from his prison cell is priceless.
Throughout the book I was constantly reminded that Christ died for his faith. I had never considered this before. And in fact it is what those who profess to be followers of Christ, are also called to do. But how many if pushed to the wall would do so?
This book left me quiet. I am still quiet. I cry and am still fighting with myself because I say "yes" I would die for my faith in G~d, but then I wonder..... At least I admit I question myself.
I appreciated the GRACE AND DISCIPLESHIP section as it caused me pain. Needed pain.THE MESSENGERS spoke to the harsh realities of the faith and the cost.
In an era especially here in the states where Christianity is often seen from a tele-evangelist mode this book slaps you in the face and reminds you that TRUR faith is more along the lines of the lone person in a one on one mode with G~d. That it is little hype and materialism and LOTS of simplicity.
Even if you are not a religios/spiritual/christian/whatever read this book. It will make you a more mature and thoughtful person.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Faith and obedience explained., 2. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cost of Discipleship (Gebundene Ausgabe)
In addition to the other reviews listed here:
Faith and obedience explained - The most revealing description of the relationship of these two essential concepts of Christianity. "There cannot be obedience without faith" and "there is no faith without obedience;" these two statements are revealed to be concurrently operative through grace. But, read it for yourself... I couldn't possibly improve on Bonhoeffer's work.
This book also "held up a mirror" to me and reflected where I was in my discipleship and gave me fresh insight on where I needed to be headed in my relations with my church, my fellow believers, my world and my Lord. This is a must read for all who feel called to serve, or are serving, as leaders.

5.0 von 5 Sternen To encourage and entreat others to experience Bonhoeffer, 6. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Cost of Discipleship (Taschenbuch)
This is an intense work,though not as intense as some of Dietrich's other works.This book lives up to it's title in every way,he pulls no punches as he relates the scriptures to real life and expounds upon the teachings of Jesus.He plainly teaches that there is a cost to following in the footsteps of Christ,just as Christ himself taught that Christ must be first and there is no compromise.This work is so intense,even Dietrich himself later in life,wondered if he was too blunt.Definitely not for those who enjoy sugar coated watered down messages,but if you've got the guts to read it,it will change your life!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life Changing, 21. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cost of Discipleship (Gebundene Ausgabe)
When I first read this book I was brought to my knees and tears! I realized that the call that Jesus gave us was so intense and that my life had been so sheltered. As I prayed to God to bring great trials in my life, I knew that I was praying for pain and that scarred me. Yet, today I know that this book transformed my life. I made a deeper commitment to my Christian Life and have never looked back. This book is a cornerstone of my faith. It is a must read for anyone who wants to be used by God.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A true life of sacrifice, 3. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Cost of Discipleship (Taschenbuch)
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a man of great principle, who lived what he believed. He felt obligated to return to Germany during the war, because he felt that if he lived outside of the persecution his church was suffering, he would have no right to belong to it after the war. Jesus said unless a man take up his cross and deny himself, he cannot be my disciple. This is a book for truly counting the cost of following Jesus.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Be warned -- Makes good on its title, 7. September 1997
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cost of Discipleship (Gebundene Ausgabe)
You want to read about the cost of discipleship? Bonhoeffer gives it to you! Discipleship is a hard pill to swallow, and Bonhoeffer doesn't try to sugar coat it for you. He wants you to know exactly how bitter and choking it will be.
Still interested? This caution, then -- the more you read about the cost of discipleship, THE MORE YOU WILL WANT TO PAY. It's a mystery. Read at your own risk
