Not-So Young Adult Book Group Reads The Faithful Spy: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Plot to Kill Hitler (August 19)

The next NSYA group meeting will take place on Monday, August 19 at 7pm in the 4th floor’s conference room. We’ll be discussing The Faithful Spy: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Plot to Kill Hitler by John Hendrix.

Goodreads description:

37863426Interweaving handwritten text and art, John Hendrix tells the story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his fight against the oppression of the German people during World War II. Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor and theologian who was shocked to watch the German church embrace Hitler’s agenda of hatred. He spoke out against the Nazi party and led a breakaway church that rebelled against racist and nationalist beliefs of the Third Reich. Struggling with how his faith interacted with his ethics, Bonhoeffer eventually became convinced that Hitler and the Nazi Party needed to be stopped–and he was willing to sacrifice anything and everything to do so.

Copies of the book are available at the front desk.
