Item description for The Shadow of His Wings: The True Story of Fr. Gereon Goldmann, OFM by Gereon Goldmann & Gereron Goldmann...

Overview
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

Reviews - What do customers think about The Shadow of His Wings: The True Story of Fr. Gereon Goldmann, OFM?

Hope during a time of horror  Mar 1, 2008
This book will take the reader on a journey with Father Goldman who as a young man entered the Seminary to study for the priesthood.His studies are interrupted by World War 2 when he is drafted into the Waffen SS.He faces persecution because of his religous beliefs but he does not give up his faith in God.
He later serves in the Heer (German Army) as a medic and saves many of his fellow soldiers at a great risk to his own life.I would reccomend this book to not only military historians but also to those going into religous studies.
 
The Great Power of Prayer!  Dec 16, 2006
Have you ever read a book that you wanted to tell all your friends about? A book that you thought everyone should read? This is it!

This is a most amazing story that will convince you of the great power of prayer. I recommend this book to all who pray, not just Catholics.

If you enjoy this book, you will also enjoy reading "The Grunt Padre" by Fr. Daniel Mode. Fr. Vincent Capodanno died while serving in Vietnam. The cause for Beatification and Canonization for Fr.Capondanno was initiated in 2006.
 
Light in the Darkness  Jul 16, 2006
Just as light shines in the darkness, Gereon Goldmann (a good-hearted Franciscan) witnesses for Christ in the midst of WWII. This autobiography is a MUST READ for anyone that doubts, for anyone that may have the least amount of curiosity to have a trickle of faith filter through his existence when all else around grows dim. This TRUE STORY is simply amazing and well written.

I was first introduced to THE SHADOW OF HIS WINGS a few years back by a friend when I wanted my junior high students to read something of WWII, where good and evil are contrasted, through the eyes of faith. It seemed fundamental, since, in hindsight we can ask questions of the bystanding Germans, Italians, and Poles that lived at the time: Why wasn't more done to prevent such a horror? Why didn't the Church stop this evil? Didn't people know that those trains were carrying cargo of soon-to-be corpses of perverted experimentation? The book does not get into the particulars of evil, but rather, gives the reader a tender notion of good versus evil in the most pivotal way, an incredible story to be read over and over again.

I am presently writing a unit plan for grades six through twelve to parallel this remarkable story.

See and read what so many do not, a beautifully told story on the horizon of understanding of how God works miracles... LIFE among the lifeless.
 
A must read for all Catholics..  Jan 3, 2006
Father Goldmann struggled without ceasing.. He lived the Beatitudes within very difficult circumstances. His account describes the human drama as inflicted on innocent German soldiers(pawns of war)put through one of the most evil meat grinders of history -- Hitler's Reich... A very inspiring story...
 
Fabulous book for military or history buffs or  Jul 15, 2005
anyone. This is not just a Catholic book. After the first chapter, I couldn't put it down. My teenagers read it on their own and give it two thumbs up too.
