(Albany, NY) – Many aspire to church leadership but few leaders are tested under the crucible of persecution. Dietrich Bonhoeffer endured that test and led well as a pastor and seminary director. In Pastors Against Hitler by Dr. Michael S. Haggard, you will learn about the many influences in Bonhoeffer’s life and the destruction of his world due to the rise of Hitler and National Socialism.
You will also investigate the many leadership roles he assumed for the Confessing Church and the risks both he and his family endured for the sanctity of the Protestant Church in Germany. Bonhoeffer wrote much on the cost of discipleship and when persecution came, Bonhoeffer lived by his own words and paid that cost. Read Pastors Against Hitler and be inspired by a leadership example extraordinaire.
