9780898707748: The Shadow of His Wings: The True Story of Fr. Gereon Goldmann, OFM

We had to do it. We had to reprint this book. Rarely has a book had such an impact on so many of us here at Ignatius Press. It is one of the most powerful and moving books we have come across. If you can only buy one book this season, this must be the one. Here is the astonishing true story of the harrowing experiences of a young German seminarian drafted into Hitler's dreaded SS at the onset of World War II. Without betraying his Christian ideals, against all odds, and in the face of Evil, Gereon Goldmann was able to complete his priestly training, be ordained, and secretly minister to German Catholic soldiers and innocent civilian victims caught up in the horrors of war. How it all came to pass will astound you.

Father Goldmann tells of his own incredible experiences of the trials of war, his many escapes from almost certain death, and the diabolical persecution that he and his fellow Catholic soldiers encountered on account of their faith. What emerges is an extraordinary witness to the workings of Divine Providence and the undying power of love, prayer, faith, and sacrifice. Illustrated

Review:

"An incredible and gripping account of survival by Divine Providence alone. This book proves again the insanity of war and the way that God is able to bring good out of evil if one has faith. This book gives you a lot to think about." -- Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR, Author, Arise from Darkness

"The Shadow of His Wings is truly an amazing book. From the first line to the last, the reader will be captivated. This book is a must." -- Alice von Hildebrand, Author, By Love Refined

"This book shows the workings of grace in the most difficult of conditions. A fascinating, gripping true story of a clerical life we can hardly imagine." -- Fr. James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University
