The Cost of Discipleship

#ad
Touchstone #ad - One of the most important theologians of the twentieth century illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, the laborer, the soldier, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, mean today to the businessman, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between "cheap grace" and "costly grace.

Cheap grace, " bonhoeffer wrote, "is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Grace without discipleship. Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life.

Ethics

#ad
Touchstone #ad - His commandment permits man to live as man before God, in a world God made, with responsibility for the institutions of that world. Although the author died before completing his work, this book is recognized as a major contribution to Christian ethics. From one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century, Ethics is the seminal reinterpretation of the role of Christianity in the modern, secularized world.

The christian does not live in a vacuum, politics, labor, says the author, but in a world of government, and marriage. Hence, claims dietrich bonhoeffer, Christian ethics cannot exist in a vacuum; what the Christian needs, is concrete instruction in a concrete situation. On the contrary, god’s commandment is to be found and known in the Church, labor, the family, and government.

Ethics #ad - This reality is not manifest in the church as distinct from the secular world; such a juxtaposition of two separate spheres, Bonhoeffer insists, is a denial of God’s having reconciled the whole world to himself in Christ. The root and ground of christian ethics, the author says, is the reality of God as revealed in Jesus Christ.
