Summary
The story of German pastor and Nazi resistor Dietrich Bonhoeffer comes to life in this award-winning graphic novel from John Hendrix

A YALSA Nonfiction Excellence in Nonfiction Award Finalist​!



Adolf Hitler's Nazi party is gaining strength and becoming more menacing every day. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a pastor upset by the complacency of the German church toward the suffering around it, forms a breakaway church to speak out against the established political and religious authorities. When the Nazis outlaw the church, he escapes as a fugitive. Struggling to reconcile his faith and the teachings of the Bible with the Nazi Party's evil agenda, Bonhoeffer decides that Hitler must be stopped by any means possible!



In his signature style of interwoven handwritten text and art, John Hendrix tells the true story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a pastor who makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to help free the German people from oppression during World War II.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Biographies of key figures from WWII are plentiful in kids books, but Hendrix's captivating account of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a standout. In engagingly written chapters on heavily illustrated pages with plentiful quotes from Bonhoeffer's writing, Hendrix covers the German theologian's childhood, early interest in religion and theology, illuminating travels in America, dismay over Hitler's rise to power, and brave dedication to resistance in a variety of ways, including direct action. Interspersed with paragraphs about Bonhoeffer's life and the circumstances in Germany that led to Hitler's regime are spot illustrations, splash-page artwork, comics panels, maps, and more, which help communicate not only the bare facts but also the emotional tenor of the story. Bonhoeffer's face is almost always filled with vivid expressions of wonder or worry, while shadowy, jagged images of Nazis goose-stepping, Hitler shouting, and huge wolves with slavering jaws illustrate the looming violence promised by the Third Reich. The combination of Hendrix's sharp, concise words and evocative artwork gives readers a strong sense of historical context, the enormity of the perilous actions undertaken by Bonhoeffer and other resistance fighters, and the revolutionary nature of his theology of action and civil disobedience. A poignant, compellingly presented, and timely account of a brave individual who lived his life with true conviction.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Hendrix (Miracle Man) captures the powerful and purposeful life of the pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, whose faith and philosophy eventually led him to take a stand against Hitler when few others in Germany would. Using a variety of art styles, the book highlights Bonhoeffer's intellectual, spiritual, and personal development alongside the cultural and political shifts behind Hitler's rise to power. It also shows Bonhoeffer's struggle to question his country's leader and his work to become more than mere witness to history-his writings, his work as "chief pastor to the conspiracy"-before his eventual capture and hanging. Hendrix details Bonhoeffer's life in accessible prose, offering appropriate, meaningful context and in places using Bonhoeffer's own words. Provocative background imagery enhances the comic's mood and atmosphere: a noose wrapped around a church shows religious strangulation in Hitler's Germany; prose shown on the moonlit wall of Bonhoeffer's prison cell conveys imprisonment's isolation. These visuals powerfully communicate the dread, despair, and violence inherent in living-and fighting against-Hitler's Germany. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 10-14. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
