Geoff BengeJanet Benge

$12.99

Paperback
Three thousand feet above China, it was Jake's turn to jump. He slid his pistol, knife, and ration packets into the pockets of his leather jacket and edged toward the open hatch of the B-52 bomber. He checked the tension on the harness of his parachute, made sure the handle of the ripcord was free, and then began lowering himself out of the hatch and into the darkness.

One of the famous Doolittle Raiders who first attacked Japan after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Jacob DeShazer knew this one-way mission was dangerous. Indeed, it led to his capture as a prisoner of war. Beaten, malnourished, and alone in his cell, Jacob was given a Bible - and far away from home, this American soldier became a Christian. After the war, Jacob returned to japan and served his former enemy for thirty years as a missionary. His testimony of forgiveness and reconciliation - of love over hate - inspires a powerful gospel message for our lives today.

Great book about forgiveness
4 stars By Sharon, Mar 31 2013
We loved this book. I read it aloud to my homeschooled children and found it to be a great way to introduce so many hard topics from a truly Christian viewpoint. The authors skillfully present military service, faithfulness in the face of defeat, handling torture and learning to forgive those who have wronged you as well as introducing children to the horrors of Japan during WW2. There is hope in Jesus in this book. The obedience to follow through in forgiving enemies shines through the testimony of Deshazer. It is a good springboard for teaching some of these topics further. I feel some sections are a little graphic for the less mature children to read by themselves, but in my opinion worth tackling as a family if you can.
