The Cost of Discipleship is proving to be one of the most profound books on faith that I have ever read.

"Jesus calls people into an actual situation where faith is possible. For that reason his call is an actual call and he wishes it so to be understood, because he knows that it is only through actual obedience that a man can become liberated to believe...The step into the situation where faith is possible is not an offer which we can make to Jesus, but always his gracious offer to us." {Dietrich Bonhoeffer}
