Praise

"High drama . . . Stirring adventure . . . To find a historical figure like Dietrich Bonhoeffer packaged in what is essentially a moral thriller is a surprising joy."
–The Boston Globe

"A SPLENDID NOVEL ABOUT A SPLENDID MAN . . . In the pantheon of heroes of this fading century, few are more deserving of residency than [Dietrich] Bonhoeffer."
–Philadelphia Inquirer

"COMPELLING . . . The story is engrossingly narrated, with an eye for significant detail, a strong sense of life’s bitter ironies and a powerful feeling of immediacy. . . . The Bonhoeffer depicted in this novel is a convincing blend of high-mindedness and self-doubt, an austere yet vulnerable man, naive and unworldly in some respects, but able to see far more deeply than many of his contemporaries into the illness and evil of his time."
–Newsday

"[A] PANORAMIC STORY . . . This novelized version of the pastor’s life by Giardina manages the extremely difficult task of giving a known story genuine tension and spiritual resonance."
–Publishers Weekly (starred review)
