Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During the most terrible years of World War II, when inhumanity and political insanity held most of the world in their grip and the Nazi domination of Europe seemed irrevocable and unchallenged, a miraculous event took place in a small Protestant town in southern France called Le Chambon. There, quietly, peacefully, and in full view of the Vichy government and a nearby division of the Nazi SS, Le Chambon's villagers and their clergy organized to save thousands of Jewish children and adults from certain death.

Book News Annotation:

Reprint of the Harper & Row book originally published in 1979 with a new (11 p.) foreword by Hallie.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 295-297) and index.

About the Author

Philip Hallie was Griffin Professor of Philosophy at Wesleyan University, where he taught for thirty-two years. He died in 1994, leaving this manuscript. That it can now be published is do to the devotion of his wife, Doris Ann Hallie, who contributed an afterword. The foreword by John Compton, fellow philosopher and longtime friend of the author, will help the reader to understand this unusual document in the context of Hallie's life and thought.

Lest Innocent Blood Be Shed is a somewhat complex book. The main character is Andre Trocme, a protestant pastor. I found it
strange that he was "unequally yoked" in marriage to an unbeliever. His wife professed no faith in God but had unswerving faith
in her husband and his ideals. Andre's focus at all costs was the protection of human life. Do no harm. I found it odd that
he did not stress the importance of the condition of the soul. He feverishly worked to save the physical lives of these Jewish
refugees to the point of exhaustion. Protestants believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. I found it interesting that no
conversations were recorded of Trocme talking to any of these Jews in hiding about the Messiah. After all, isn't that the message
we expect from a protestant pastor to both Jew and Gentile? Trocme and his wife were both heroic and to be admired for their
selfless lives, but I did not come away from the book with a feeling that they had the "peace that passes understanding" that
we read about in the Bible. If the writing of this book was meant to be inspirational it was lost on me. I found no joy in
either Trocme or his wife for all their efforts. I give this book 3 classic stars.
