How does a Christian live in a "world come of age?"
20 March 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a good film, and certainly relevant as the church struggles to find its place and vocation in the world today. It is a humble picture that gets by on the strength of its (true) story, and indeed, the incredible witness of Bonhoeffer himself. Both Bonhoeffer enthusiasts and those unfamiliar with his life and works will find this film interesting. It succeeds (as much as a 90-minute film can) in showing how Bonhoeffer wrestled with, and was challenged by, the events of his day. Most Christians (forgive the stereotyping, but I am one, so give me some slack) tend to judge the world as a young creation gone wrong, whereas Dietrich Bonhoeffer viewed the middle of the 20th century on its own terms -- as a world come of age, and acted accordingly.
