Book Review: Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

A few quiet evenings during our favorite week of the year (family camp!) offered me the chance to read through a great book. Eric Metases did a great job on his research and development of a student edition of his famous biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer; Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy. 

I enjoyed the extra definitions, historic timelines, thought provoking questions, quotes and the maps he included in this edition. It seemed the perfect amount of information for a student learning about Bonhoeffer and the horrific acts towards the Jews. 


Since this is a student edition, I would suggest it be read by an older middle schooler or high schooler. It would be a great source for a research project, class report or personal study. I plan on keeping it on our bookshelf to add to our homeschool history lessons when the time is right. 


Thanks BookLook for a free copy to read and review. All thoughts on the book are my own.
