A beautiful book about a master Theologian. This work gives many insights into the life of Ernst Lohmeyer. The author spends a great time getting to know Lohmeyer. "If you ask an American kid who his or her heroes are, you will probably hear names from the fields of entertainment and sports. Had you asked a young person of Lohmeyer’s day—at least from his social stratum—you would have heard names from science, the arts, and literature. Lohmeyer was introduced to the cultured worlds of antiquity, classical languages, music, and the humanistic tradition early in life." (great thought about childhood and upbringing) Lohmeyer was a great type of scholar, the one we need back in the Church again. Many Christian scholars have great insight but miss the burning heart to make a real difference in the world. Edwards gives also great insights and theological views from Lohmeyer. This made the book more interesting. When you want to know more about the history during the WO2 and after that, this book will give you a better understanding. Many innocent Germans suffered greatly in this period. Like Loymeher which suffered a great deal, still, he kept the faith to the end, like a real hero. This book also made me more conscious about the terrible acts of communism, which can be even of greater horror than those of the nazis. As God designed humans he also knows which governmental type works best.
