The Cost of Discipleship - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ. It remains an abstract idea, a myth which has a place for the Fatherhood of God, but omits Christ as the living Son. … There is trust in God, but no following of Christ.” - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

This is just a taste from a compilation of excerpts from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s book “The Cost of Discipleship”. It provides a very challenging view of discipleship and its necessity to the Christian life.
