The Cost of Discipleship is one of the bestselling titles on the SCM Classics list and one of the classics of modern theology. Perhaps Dietrich Bonhoeffer's most radical book, this reading of the Sermon on the Mount has influenced many Christians throughout the world over the last 50 years. 50 years after its first publication, the book is reintroduced to readers of our time by Stephen Plant, Dean of Trinity Hall, Cambridge and one of the leading Bonhoeffer scholars of our time.
Without a doubt, the book that has most changed my life is Dietrich Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship. It is incredible. I first read it at Bible college and then read it again three years ago. Bonhoeffer writes about cheap grace - how we can make the gospel what people want to hear so that we get a bigger response- and how we must fight against that. As an evangelist, I can sometimes feel the temptation to give a softer message to get more people responding, but actually we need to be true to the message that belongs to God. You can change the style, but don't change the substance. -- Gavin Calver * Christianity Magazine, Jan 2016 *
