40% off Eva Muntean's Pick of the Week*
When this book was first recommended to us, Fr. Fessio was the first to read it. I remember how excited he was to tell us about it. His enthusiasm was infectious so I asked for the manuscript. I was completely mesmerized. I could not put it down and finished it in less than two days. My first question was “is this real; could this have really happened?” The feeling of excitement has not left me in the 12 years since we’ve published this book. I have recommended this book at every opportunity - which is often since I work conferences for Ignatius Press. I have had many people come back and tell me how much this book has changed their lives.
There is no need to tell you about the story – you can read about it on our website. Just know that it has it all: war, redemption, Nazis, guns (to a bishop’s head by our hero), concentration camps, Himmler, spiritual battles, miracles, Lourdes, and above all else, the astounding stories of the power of prayer.
I have been working for Ignatius Press almost 20 years and in all that time I have never seen another book receive a personal write-up in our catalog (I wrote it). Check it out – it’s still the current product description on our website. Once there, do yourself a favor and buy (and read!) this wonderful book. The Shadow of His Wings is also available as an e-book.
