Have read it twice - loved it!
Two stars is generous; really, this book was kind of torture to read. It meanders; it claims to be a history but the author is not a historian (he's an ethicist, apparently) and it shows. Sample: "...under this tolerance many new Protestant sects flourished, the way blood rushes to a lacerated spot when a whipping has stopped." While the book is a nice portrait of the Protestant pastor André Trocmé and his wife Magda, who risked their lives in a small French town during the Occupation to save several thousand Jewish refugees, particularly children, the actual facts are laid out much more clearly in other places.
