“On the Christian Life” Series Co-editors, Justin Taylor and Stephen J. Nichols, Discuss the Newest Addition

DIETRICH BONHOEFFER died a martyr’s death at the young age of 39 and remains one of the most influential pastor-theologians of our time. His writings teach us the value of cross-centered theology, and his courageous actions against the Nazi regime compel us to consider the cost of discipleship.

With insight, clarity, and wisdom, Stephen Nichols guides readers through the words and deeds of this humble yet heroic pastor, whose example shows us that the heart of the Christian’s life flows from the cross, for the world.

Watch as series co-editors, Justin Taylor and Stephen J. Nichols, discuss Nichols’s newest addition—Bonhoeffer on the Christian Life—and the series as a whole.
