FIRST-PERSON: A witness to faith

DALLAS (BP)--"When Christ calls a man, he bids him to come and die," wrote German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who would be executed by the Nazis for his role in an anti-Hitler plot. That was the first line of his well-known book, “The Cost of Discipleship” -- a cost that has been paid in full by David McDonnall, a 29-year-old Southern Baptist missionary from Rowlett, Texas, murdered by gunmen in Iraq on Monday, March 15. Mr. McDonnall's wife, Carrie, a missionary who was seriously wounded in the attack, has been left a widow at age 26.
