Henry Gerecke's service as a U.S. Army chaplain during World War II was stressful, but nothing he had experienced before was more morally vexatious than his ministry at Nuremberg to the souls of imprisoned Nazi war criminals. The prospect of grappling with the consciences of the likes of Hermann Göring, Albert Speer, and Joachim von Ribbentrop did not seem promising, but the Lutheran cleric did eventually learn new things about faith, forgiveness, and humanity. Tim Townsend's well-researched account of Gerecke's encounters possesses an almost Dantesque vividness.
