Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of the most well-known and beloved theologians of the twentieth century. Renowned for his classic works Life Together and The Cost of Discipleship, Bonhoeffer’s legacy took on another dimension when he was imprisoned and executed for participating in a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

"This is my second Passiontide here. When people suggest in their letters . . . that I'm 'suffering' here, I reject the thought. It seems to me a profanation. These things mustn't be dramatized. I doubt very much whether I'm 'suffering' any more than you, or most people, are suffering today. Of course, a great deal here is horrible, but where isn't it? . . . No, suffering must be something quite different, and have a quite different dimension, from what I've so far experienced." from Letter to Eberhard Bethge from Tegel prison, 9 March 1944
