Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a very kind man. When he was born on February 4, 1906, he lived the life of a normal German. His dad was a neurologist/psychiatrist. He moved the family to Berlin so he can become a professor at the University of Berlin. When he first was allowed to go to school, his parents denied it and instead, Dietrich was home schooled until the age of 6-7. He was expected to become a psychiatrist but at a young age he decided to become a pastor. In 1924, Dietrich was enrolled at the University of Berlin, which is a center of liberal theology. Then, in 1931, he returned to the same university to teach systematic theology. His travels changed his perspective of how he looked at Christianity. The most crucial part of his life that he has created is a book called,"The cost of Discipleship", this was written in 1937. It showed his opinions on the neo-radical cultures of Christianity. Also in the sight of the Nazi invasion of Germany.
