Costly Grace: A Contemporary View of Bonhoeffer’s The Cost of Discipleship by Jon Walker

“I believe Costly Grace may be one of the most important books published during this time
of economic uncertainty and world turmoil. It strips discipleship down to its essentials,
where we discover again that, when we face uncertainty, our only certainty is in Jesus.”
~ Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life

In 1937, on the threshold of Nazi Germany’s war on the world, Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote what turned out to be one of the most influential books of the century, The Cost of Discipleship. In it, he challenged the flabby faith and compromises of German Christians, famously writing, “When Christ calls a man he bids him come and die.”

Now, seventy-three years after the book was first published, Jon Walker to a new generation and a different social environment the timeless teachings of Jesus that stirred Bonhoeffer to address the “cheap grace” of his time.

Grace is a foundational doctrine for Christians, yet it is one of the most misunderstood. In a fresh engagement with this Christian classic, Walker explains what Bonhoeffer meant when he taught that grace is free but will cost us everything.

Focused around a study of the Sermon on the Mount, Costly Grace is an excellent resource for small groups and congregation-wide study.
