Detrich Bonhoffer (1906-1945)

Bonhoffer Speaks

“The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children.”  

“A prison cell, in which one waits, hopes - and is completely dependent on the fact that the door of freedom has to be opened from the outside, is not a bad picture of Advent”

“To deny oneself is to be aware only of Christ and no more of self, to see only Him who goes before and no more the road which is too hard for us.”

“God's truth judges created things out of love, and Satan's truth judges them out of envy and hatred.”

“If you do a good job for others, you heal yourself at the same time, because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure.”

  “One act of obedience is better than one hundred sermons”

“Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”
