In my last sermon at Brooklife on 1 Corinthians 12 about the body of Christ and each members’ place in it, I mentioned what is in my opinion the best book on the church and true Christian community.
That book is Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran theologian, professor, and author who resisted the Nazi regime during World War II. He paid for his resistance with his life at the age of 39 near the end of the war in 1945.
Scot McKnight, an excellent commentator on the faith, has recently written six reflections on Bonhoeffer on his blog that I think are insightful, as well as a helpful introduction to this great book.
