His Watchful EyeHis Watchful Eye by Jack Cavanaugh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Another powerful, insightful, and disturbing book about German Christians during WWII.  I couldn't put it down.  In fact, I finished it two days ago and didn't stop to write this review - I jumped right into book #3!  Jack Cavanaugh does such a good job of explaining the inexplicable.  How could young people, raised in Christ's Church, become Nazi youth and then soldiers involved in unspeakable acts against humanity?  What caused them to go this way - and what brought some of them back?  This is another book worth your time to read and digest.  Parts of it are disturbing but they are important to understand because things like this really happened.  The fictional characters are so believable, you can being to understand what it could have been like.  Well done, Mr. Cavanaugh, you deserve all 5 stars for this one!

I'm reading this right now. It is such a good book, in a horrid way. The relationships of the characters, especially Pastor Josef, and even the children, is wonderful. Joyce

It grew a special generation of people too. Created of those who opposed the evil and those who survived it.
