Wednesday Inspiration - Bonhoeffer

If you are motivated to read the true story of one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century, pick up Eric Metaxas' book Bonhoeffer.  You will learn about a whole new level of leadership sacrifice that goes far beyoned the day to day worries of onboarding, vacancies, and corporate strategy.

Let me know what you think.  I'd love to discuss Dietrich's work, and Eric's book, anytime.

I'd love to hear from you.

No Excuses.


  1. Hi Jay

    Great reminder of an inspirational leader and perhaps one who is often overlooked when we discuss these topics. I did my dissertation thesis on Bonhoeffer at University and like you find him fascinating and inspiring.

    Thanks for the reminder :)

  2. Jay - I just saw this book and was tempted to pick it up. Studied Bonhoeffer years ago in Sunday School and loved what he had to say. I'll be getting the book now.

  3. Alison - Thanks for the comment. What a great topic for your thesis! I'm happy to chat about him anytime.

    Steve - Enjoy the book. It is not a "quick read," nor is it intended to be. But you'll be inspired by his courage.
