Even while being a minister playing games to escape the attention of the Nazi government while at the same time provoking them, Bonhoeffer kept a journal. This is how we know so much about his thoughts as he traveled, escaped trouble, landed in trouble, was imprisoned, met people and studied Scripture. This was a time where you would put your ear to the door and look both ways before having a conversation with someone. It was risky to be writing things down in his journal, but he did it anyway. I am so grateful he was fearless even in that. He was a bold journaler.
