We have been saved by grace—but does that mean we bear no further obligation? What is the cost of discipleship and is there anything such as “cheap grace”? These are the questions that Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the most influential theologians of the 20th century, discusses in this book, originally known simply as Discipleship.
The book is not just a theoretical exercise in theology. Bonhoeffer, who later imprisoned by the Nazi regime and died while in jail, new first-hand many of the challenges of reconciling a true commitment to Christ with the many pressures of the world we live in.
The Cost of Discipleship is a modern-day classic of Christian thought.
