Metaxas has abridged his extensive biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran pastor in Germany during WWII, into an edition accessible to young adults. Narrator Stu Gray's voice will also appeal to young listeners. He takes his time with a sure, steady pace and careful pronunciation of the many German names and words, managing to make a complex subject understandable to a less scholarly audience. The quoting of letters and other writings brings this extraordinary man to life. As the author recounts events from the pastor's childhood, education, involvement in the German Resistance, imprisonment, and, ultimately, his death, he introduces young people to a person who lived his faith in spite of the personal cost.
