Breakfast with Bonhoeffer (Leafwood Publishers) by Jon Walker is a spiritual memoir. Even as he was researching Bonhoeffer’s writings for a book, his life began to come apart—after 20 years of ministry, he was laid off twice, lost his home and savings, was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder, and then his wife filed for divorce. In the midst of this storm, Walker describes how God used Bonhoeffer’s writings to restore his faith in a good God. This is a painful but valuable book to read.
