In Rabbi David G. Dalin's controversial new book, he explodes the newly resurrected, widely accepted, yet utterly bankrupt smearing of Pope Pius XII, whom Jewish survivors of the Holocaust considered a righteous gentile.
An Up-to-date Overview of the Pope Pius XII Controversy
The illustrious Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was wont to say, "Don’t pay attention to what people say. Pay attention to why they say it." The Archbishop’s wisdom applies to many critics of Pope Pius XII, particularly a good number who have published books critical of the Pope in the last decade. These authors consistently and stridently excoriate the pontiff for his alleged actions and inactions before and during World War II. John Cornwell infamously dubbed Pius XII "Hitler’s Pope" in a best seller released in 1999, and a parade of emulators have followed, including Garry Wills, James Carroll, Daniel Goldhagen, and Susan Zuccotti. In examining their writings, one quickly discerns he is not dealing with dispassionate inquiry aimed at setting the historical record straight. Rather, a decided bias directed at discrediting Pius XII and the Church becomes manifest to one extent or another.
