Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian, and founding member of the Confessing Church. He is well known for his theological writings; his book “The Cost of Discipleship” is considered a modern classic. Bonhoeffer was known for his staunch resistance to Nazism. He was imprisoned in the Flossenbürg Nazi German concentration camp and executed on April 9, 1945, only two weeks before the camp was liberated.
