The Faith in Action books are short, simply written, illustrated biographies of men and women who have lived and acted according to their faith. Questions alongside the main story encourage readers to think about the reasons for the behaviour of the characters, to empathise with the situations in which they found themselves and to consider related local or global issues in modern society. A 'Things to Do' section at the end of each book provides longer activities for RE or Citizenship and offers opportunities for assessment.
Daring to Do What Is Right describes Dietrich Bonhoeffer's early life and time as a young academic and pastor in Germany and abroad. It explains the significance of his work on his return to Germany, and why and how his convictions led him to become involved in the 1944 plot to kill Hitler. Following the failure of the plot, Bonhoeffer's story concludes with his arrest in 1943, his writings during his time in prison, his trial and execution.
