THE LION OF MUNSTER
THE BISHOP WHO ROARED AGAINST THE NAZIS. "The dear God placed me in a position in which I had a duty to call black 'black' and white 'white.'" These were the words of Cardinal Clemens August von Galen, the bishop of Munster, Germany from 1933-1946. He risked death at the hands of the Nazis. Fr. Daniel Utrecht brings us the biography of the great Lion of Munster--a 6 1/2-foot tall giant-of-a-man who loved God, his Church and His law. He called his homeland back to the ways of God. The story of his life gives you a glimpse of the confrontation between Church and State in Hitler's Germany. Hear the Lion roar. Hardcover. 424 pages.
