Abstract:

"Alfred Delp (1907-1945) was a German Jesuit executed by the Nazis for anti-Hitler activities. During his months in prison he composed a 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 show the ongoing relevance of the Gospel in an age of idolatrous power and capricious violence."--Jacket.
