Description - With Bound Hands by Mary Frances Coady

The Life and Selected Prison Letters of Alfred Delp The true story of a renowned Jesuit priest's spiritual transformation while living in Nazi captivity. Alfred Delp was a proud German, a Jesuit priest, a Nazi resister, and a martyr. Executed by the Nazis in 1945 for crimes against the Third Reich, Delp left a legacy in letters written from his prison cell. With Bound Hands tells Delp's life story through a compilation of correspondence with his friends and family. It reveals his struggle to maintain his faith in the face of imminent death. During Delp's six-month incarceration prior to his execution, he writes of his fear, sadness, and anger, and then his transformation from an "unholy character into a saint." Delp then reflects on his love of God, sense of peace, and surrender. With Bound Hands tells not only the story of a single brave resister, but offers insight into the courageous stand many people made against the Nazi regime. "A well-researched, engaging, and moving book. It testifies to the fact that Christian opposition to National Socialism was not sporadically whispered by timid souls but boldly proclaimed by men and women who paid for their acts with imprisonment, torture, and death." --Joseph M. Malham, author, By Fire Into Light: Four Catholic Martyrs of the Nazi Camps
