This first book of the Here I Am! series tells the real-life story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer who loved God and his neighbor, even when it cost him his life. This series highlights fascinating and faithful Christians in history for kids ages 4-8.

Written by Molly Frye Wilmington, Illustrated by Marcin Piwowarski

“A compelling story about a noble person and a skillful storyteller make for a great children’s book, and that is what we find in Molly Wilmington’s Dietrich Bonhoeffer: The Teacher Who Became a Spy. Bonhoeffer’s winsome life and courageous witness have inspired and guided millions since his death in 1945, and with this volume girls and boys will be introduced to his exemplary life of faith, insight and hope. Families and churches will definitely want to have this book in their libraries.”
