Philip Hallie was Griffin Professor of Philosophy at Wesleyan University, where he taught for thirty-two years. He died in 1994, leaving this manuscript. That it can now be published is do to the devotion of his wife, Doris Ann Hallie, who contributed an afterword. The foreword by John Compton, fellow philosopher and longtime friend of the author, will help the reader to understand this unusual document in the context of Hallie's life and thought.

If you were to put those two eloquent men, André Trocmé and Adolf Hitler, in a comfortable room for any comfortable length of time to argue about the appropriate ethical judgment to lay upon the actions of the Chambonnais between 1940 and 1944, neither would persuade the other that his judgment was the final one; nor would they ever both acknowledge any court to decide conclusively between their conflicting judgments.
