Untold hunt for Hitler revealed in new book

Many readers of this blog will recognize John Woodbridge as the author of a watershed book defending inerrancy, Biblical Authority: A Critique of the Rogers/McKim Proposal. Recently however, he has teamed-up with Pulitzer Prize winner Maurice Possley to write Hitler in the Crosshairs: A GI’s Story of Courage and Faith. Earlier this month, the authors appeared together on public radio to discuss the book (listen below or download here).

Here’s a description of the program and the book:

Monday marks the 67th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy. The fighting that ensued took many twists and turns. Those who survived came home with battle scars, memories good and bad and in some cases souvenirs. One was a gun believed to have belonged to Adolf Hitler himself.

When local history professor John Woodbridge saw a TV story detailing the gun’s auction he had a flashback of sorts–his father had shown him the gun as a child.

In Hitler in the Crosshairs: A GI’s Story of Courage and Faith, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Maurice Possley and Woodbridge tell the story behind the gun.
