Ok…So for Christmas, Perze bought me a book, serving as the biography for Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German theologian, pastor, and conspirator to assassinate Hitler. His life changed the general negative perception the world held over Germans and its clergy. Not only through activism was he made famous, but later through his books and journal entries, esp. delving into the necessity to define cheap grace vs. costly grace.
As I got into the book, I felt a strong attraction to know his life, his work. An uncanny twist happened when I was visiting the RZIM website, reading the recommendation list for Ravi’s School of Apologetics, when I noticed Bonhoeffer’s book "Meditating On the Word," further enticing my desire to read his works.
I even watched the documentary based on his life, that was (again uncanny) showing on TV.
As weeks passed on, I started to have this incredible sense, a feeling, that I was familiar with Bonhoeffer…he looked so familiar, so likeable, so jovial, personable, like I’ve met him before, almost like we’ve had some "connection" before. I honestly couldn’t understand why I liked him, amidst all his other worthy admirable accomplishments and character.
Then, tonight, I realized why.
Meet my OBGYN.
I couldn’t stop laughing.
