Mission at Nuremberg: An American Army Chaplain and the Trial of the Nazis
by Tim Townsend
My brother-in-law let me know about this book that chronicles the story of Army Chaplain Henry Gerecke, who was instrumental in ministering to Goering, Wilhelm Keitel, and others as they went through the Nuremberg Trials. He also ministered to them as they awaited their death sentences. So far, the book is quite remarkable and is a testimony of God's grace, for no criminal, not even the worst is bereft of hearing the good news of Jesus Christ.
America's Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation by Grant Wacker
Wacker, Professor of Christian History at Duke Divinity School is well-acquainted with the way Billy Graham influenced the culture and set an example for Christianity throughout the 1950's up to today. So far, the book has been an excellent presentation of Billy as preacher, motivator, and shaper of culture. In fact, Wacker's main thesis is that Billy was adept at taking larger trends of culture and using them towards his evangelical ends. You won't want to miss this book by an excellent historian.
