While pouring over the classic writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer every day for a book he was writing, Jon Walker found his own world going through a storm of upheaval. After almost twenty years in ministry, he was laid off twice, lost his home and savings, and was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder. And then his wife filed for divorce just a few days before their twenty-fourth anniversary.
Reading like a non-fiction novel with a story both heart-breaking and heart-warming, Breakfast with Bonhoeffer reveals how God used the writings of Bonhoeffer to rescue him from a failing faith, where God's plans seemed more evil than good.
If you've ever felt abandoned by god or doubted his plan for your life, Breakfast with Bonhoeffer will help you see that God stays with you step-by-step. Here's a moving story of loss--and unexpected gain--that will deliver hope and renewal for a fresh faith and a new day.
