  (全英文書)1906出生宗教靈魂人物迪特里希.潘霍華(Dietrich Bonhoeffer)對當時教廷的章程大失所望;所以他從此遊走在牧師和間諜身分之間的傳奇故事。

  ◎ 本書含蓋了傳記宗教和歷史;特別是政治和軍事。

  ◎ 反抗纳粹黨德籍牧師迪特里希.潘霍華(Dietrich Bonhoeffer)和當時貴族女性代表露絲.范.克里絲(matriarch Ruth von Kleist)視迪特里希如自己兒子之間的歷史故事。

  ◎ 作者以澳洲出生的波蘭後裔的觀點,花了近六年時間考證這段歷史並反應出現今某些中外人士外對於歷史、社會、宗教、政治等等理念的「不平衡點」。

  In memory of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ruth von Kleist-Retzow and their kin, who dared to uphold everything that was decent in a world of indecency and injustice.

  A compelling German historical biography of faith, framed by religious, political and military conflict, set in the twin cataclysmic backdrop of both world wars, as seen from a fresh Polish perspective. The narrative is enriched with a wide array of compelling and heroic personal stories, including of many extraordinary women, such as the Junker matriarch Ruth von Kleist and her children, in defiance of multiple manifestations of tyranny. The central figure, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, of whom Ruth came to regard like a son, becomes disenchanted with the State Church’s appeasement of the National Socialist agenda, and transitions into a double life as pastor and spy. As the tension builds to the tragic climax, one can draw disturbing parallels with the modern-day subversion of all faiths, Western and traditional, and all other manner of human rights abuses in Xi Jinping’s People’s Republic of China, with tacit approval it seems, from the Vatican in Rome. Moreover, eerie parallels from the death throes of Weimar Germany for America in 2020-21.

作者介紹

作者簡介

Vince Barwinski

  born in Sydney Australia in 1962, taught English in Taiwan in 2003 and Poland, the land of his paternal ancestors from September 2004 to June 2005. In Taiwan he met his future wife, whom he married on his return to Australia from Poland in October 2005. However, it was in Poland, in February 2005 that he came upon his inspiration for this book. Namely the bronze cross memorial to the German anti-Nazi Lutheran pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the modern-day Polish city of Wrocław – pre-WWII German Breslau and birthplace of Dietrich in February 1906. It was the dual history of this city and his amateur passion for history, fostered by his father, in particular, WWII history of Europe, that inspired him to write of Dietrich Bonhoeffer from a hitherto, unique Polish perspective, with lessons of history still relevant in today’s world. Not the least of which being, the religious oppression and subversion in Xi Jinping’s China, and the rise of the radical left in America in 2020-21, mirroring in many respects, Hitler’s Reich.
