This book is about the Danish pastor and poet Kaj Munk, who was murdered by the Gestapo on January 4, 1944. The news of his death was a shock to a nation that had already suffered through four years of German occupation. The Nazis thought that they could silence him, but they were wrong. Kaj Munk's voice had been a rallying cry in the long dark Danish night, and it continued to be an inspiration for the Danish people. Interest in the life and works of Kaj Munk is growing in Denmark, and this book of translations allows the English reader to become familiar with him as well.
