In this, the definitive English-language biography of the great Lion of Münster, listeners will encounter the young von Galen as he learns the Catholic faith and love of the fatherland from his family, members of the German aristocracy. A nobleman, a prince of his people and of his Church, the boy grew into a man, a six-and-a-half-foot tall giant of a man, who, though he loved his homeland, loved God, his Church, and his law even more; for he knew that calling his homeland back to the ways of God is the one way in which a bishop can best demonstrate that love for the people under his spiritual care. And so, in three magnificent sermons and countless other speeches, communiques and gestures, the Lion roared.
This story of his life and his stirring words provides listeners with an indispensable glimpse into the confrontation between church and state in Hitler's Germany and will serve as a reminder to all men and women of good will of the duty to call black "black" and white "white".

What did you like best about The Lion of Münster? What did you like least?
The story is one of heroic bravery.
What didn’t you like about Kevin F. Spalding’s performance?
The presentation was marred by the narrator who insisted on attempting to pronounced German, Italian and Latin words in an affected voice and attempted accent that was amusing at first, but which quickly became not just annoying but down-right distracting. Whereas I would recommend purchasing the book, I would not recommend purchasing this presentation.
