"When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die." With these words, in The Cost of Discipleship, Dietrich Bonhoeffer gave powerful voice to the millions of Christians who believe personal sacrifice is an essential component of faith. Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran pastor and theologian, was an exemplar of sacrificial faith: he opposed the Nazis from the first and was eventually imprisoned in Buchenwald and hung by the Gestapo in 1945. The Cost of Discipleship, first published in German in 1937, was Bonhoeffer's answer to the questions, "What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us to-day?" Bonhoeffer's answers are rooted in Lutheran grace and derived from Christian scripture (almost a third of the book consists of an extended meditation on the Sermon on the Mount). The book builds to a stunning conclusion: its closing chapter, "The Image of Christ," describes the believer's spiritual life as participation in Christ's incarnation, with a rare and epigrammatic confidence: "Through fellowship and communion with the incarnate Lord," Bonhoeffer writes, "we recover our true humanity, and at the same time we are delivered from that individualism which is the consequence of sin, and retrieve our solidarity with the whole human race." --Michael Joseph Gross

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
