Bonhoeffer: A Hero Then and Now - Part 1

Host:
Dr. James Dobson
Guest:
Eric Metaxas
During the regime of Adolf Hitler, a brave German pastor named Dietrich Bonhoeffer declared, "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." Eric Metaxas, author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, highlights the moral courage of this man who knowingly risked his life to condemn Germany’s maniacal dictator. God is still calling Christians to speak out against evil going on today.
