      Product Description

      Classic reflections on the Gospel by a 20th century martyr.

      Alfred Delp (1907-1945) was a German Jesuit condemned to death by the Nazis for anti-Hitler activities. While awaiting execution Delp composed this series of meditations on Advent, the Lord's Prayer, the tasks of the future, the meaning of happiness, and other spiritual themes.

      Written on the edge of eternity Delp's reflections continue to bear a special power and poignancy. His words snow the ongoing relevance of the Gospel in an age of idolatrous power and capricious violence.

      "These are the thoughts of a man who, caught in a well-laid trap of political lies, clung desperately to a truth revealed to him in solitude, helplessness, emptiness, and desperation . . . ."--Thomas Merton
