Has anyone ever used "Seize the Day" by Bonhoeffer?  Looking to pick it up and just wanted to see what others thought of it.

Thanks,

Steve

Are you talking about "Seize the Day with Dietrick Bonhoeffer"?  This is a devotional book that mediates on a particular saying of Bonhoeffer combined with a Bible reading.  It is written by Dr Charles Ringma who is a Dutch-born Australian citizen  trained at the Reformed Theological College in Geelong and The  University of Queensland  Brisbane  Australia.


I see readers on Amazon give it a 4 1/2 star review, but the criticism I see of it is that it is more Charles Ringma than Bonheffer. 



Just wanted to point it out it is not a Bonhoeffer book per se.

Yes, that was the book I was referring to.  I'm looking for a daily devotional and it seemed right to get one with a Lutheran slant, and was wondering if anyone had any experience with it.


 


Thanks.

Seems like it will have a more Reformed slant to it, but there is nothing that says you can't learn anything from the Reformed people--just be careful with the double predestination thing.

Got it.  Thanks for that.  I guess it would have a reformed slant, if the autor is Reformed :-).

"Carpe Cyprinus carpio diem," which being translated is, "Seize the Carp of the Day ... "

Concordia, try 40-Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer. It's published by Augsburg Fortress, a Lutheran publisher. I've not used this one yet (it's in the queue), but I've used other 40 Day Journey devotionals, and have found them to very much have a Lutheran slant, and to challenge me to dig a little deeper both into Scripture and into where I am spiritually.


Here's the link at Amazon:
