Overview

On February 2, 1945, Fr. Alfred Delp, S.J., a widely admired pastor, youth leader, and intellectual, was executed by the Nazis in Plotzensee Prison in Berlin. During the six months before his execution, the shackled priest painfully wrote a stream of deeply moving letters, meditations, and prayers which were smuggled out to friends and family members. These writings reveal a man profoundly changed in the crucible of suffering -- a once-arrogant, impatient priest transformed into a herald of hope and grace. With Bound Hands tells the absorbing story of Alfred Delp -- a Jesuit hero who found redemption as he plumbed the depths of evil.
