Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

This short glimpse of Dietrich Bonhoeffer shows the source of his strength. He spent his last minutes alive kneeling on the floor praying fervently to his God. . . . so certain that God heard his prayer. At the place of execution he again said a short prayer . . . I have hardly ever seen a man die entirely submissive to the will of God.*

*Eric Metaxas, Bonhoeffer, p. 532.
