Karl Stern
Introduction by Stanley L. Jaki

“In the Pillar of Fire, Karl Stern (1906-1975), a prominent 20th century neuropsychiatrist, has given us a classic account of one man’s struggle to reconcile his Jewish identity with the claims of the Christian faith. Published in 1951, the Pillar of Fire narrates with great eloquence Karl Stern’s difficult spiritual odyssey. It stretched from his boyhood in pre-World War I Germany through the Weimar and Nazi periods to his emigration to England and Canada and his conversion to Catholicism.
