I needed this book for a class. I was expecting it to be very difficult. I was pleasantly surprised as I got into it how understandable Bonhoeffer made it. I learned alot from it.

After spending 10 summers at Wilderness Ranch and experiencing the unique Christian community which makes WR such a special place...and spending 7 of those summers in a leadership position, I finally read this classic Bonhoeffer book. I know I know. I really liked this book. Many parts of it were familiar, as it has been a source text for many camp devos and worships. Yet, reading it cover to cover was a great exercise. It is a book I intend to read once a year from now on. The reader can easily tell that Bonhoeffer's words are inspired and show careful wisdom.

We are family!
This is an amazing book and one which I think every Christian should read at least once! It is especially challenging to our American individualist mindset - the whole idea of true Christian fellowship/community goes against our "its just between me and God" way of thinking. We ARE united in Jesus Christ - and that's the reality, like it or not. We ARE responsible to and for one another, as messy as that sometimes can be. The Christian community is not a rose-colored glasses, tidy, perfect kind of place. It is a down-in-the-trenches, very real bond between fellow sinners created by Christ Himself. Bonhoeffer offers a particular challenge to all who think they can be Christians without belonging to a church.
