I picked up a copy of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Discipleship (Reader’s Edition) at my local Barnes & Noble recently. Discipleship is a topic I’m focusing on in 2016 so I thought this would be a good investment in my reading this year.
Lutheranism vs Catholicism
My feeling while reading the first two chapters was that Bonhoeffer dealt more with the interplay from Luther’s religious interaction with Catholicism than he dealt with Biblical discipleship. Given that Bonhoeffer’s context was as a Lutheran pastor and theologian in Nazi Germany this seemed reasonable but it didn’t seem to address much that he and I might share in our faith experiences at that point.
