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.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
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.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
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.
