I am reviewing The Battle For Bonhoeffer through WM.B Eerdman’s Publishing Company and Netgalley:

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was born in 1906 and died in 1945. In this book biographer Stephen Haynes talks about how many in politics have come to use him as a clay puppet. Secular, radical, liberal and evangelical each try to shape this Martyr’s legacy to fit their agendas

As much as the author accuses those of fitting Bonhoeffer’s legacy to fit their own agenda’s I found the author of this book disappointingly did the same!

I give The Battle for Bonhoeffer three out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
