Bonhoeffer on the Christian Life: An Interview with Steve Nichols

Eric Metaxas writes, “How I rejoice to see thinkers of Stephen Nichols’s caliber applying their fine minds to the life and thought of the inimitable Dietrich Bonhoeffer. There’s so much yet to be written about this great man. A hungry readership awaits!”

Russell Moore says, “This book will quicken your pulse as you are drawn into the story and the example of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Stephen Nichols brings a long and complex life to a point of ongoing personal application. This book prompted me to pray for the kind of courage that comes only after intense communion with the living God. Read and be strengthened.”

The book is Bonhoeffer on the Christian Life: From the Cross, for the World, the latest entry in the Theologians on the Christian Life series (more on this below).

I recently talked to Dr. Nichols about the book and the man behind it. We talked about things like: How do you pronounce his name? Why do we need another book on Bonhoeffer after Metaxas’s big bestselling biography? Was he an evangelical? And other questions.
