Book Summary of The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer


One of the most difficult areas of the Christian life is learning the ability to mirror Jesus in the way we live our daily lives. It is all about the Christian calling to discipleship and adhering to the words of the Lord. What does this mean for the average Christian in their daily life?

Martyred Lutheran pastor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in his classic work The Cost of Discipleship helps followers of Jesus see the need for a full picture of daily Christian living. Drawing from the Sermon on the Mount, we find here a compelling statement on the demands of sacrifice and living with consistency in belief and action.

This isn’t a book absent of an author that lived out these things written here. This is a book that every Christian must read and allow it to engage their lives going forward. Costly grace is something all Christians are called to embrace.
