$19.99

Paperback
NOMINATED FOR UK CHRISTIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2006

Here is a fascinating insight into the influence of the gospel on the lives of people who lived through the World Wars of the last century and the events that led up to it.

Read about:
* the Japanese pilot who led the attack on Pearl Harbor
* the German pastor who was prepared to suffer imprisonment and death for the sake of his faith
* the British general given the task of defending Malta against invasion by Hitler and Mussolini
* the American airman who was converted while a prisoner of the Japanese and who later returned to Japan as a missionary
* the Jewish girl who came to know Christ as her Saviour while in hiding from the Nazis
* the American chaplain who witnessed to leading Nazi war criminals on trial at Nuremberg, and
* the British secret agent who was the inspiration for 'Q' in the James Bond 007 stories.

What did these people, and the others whose lives are told in this book, have in common? During the turbulent events of those momentous years, God was at work in their lives. He brought these thirteen people to trust, know, love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore to give themselves to the service of others.

'Once you start this book you will not want to put it down. It is a collection of remarkable stories told by a master storyteller. . . A book like this cannot leave you unaffected. If you are already a Christian it will strengthen your belief in the sovereignty of God and in the transforming power of his gospel. It will also challenge you about the depth and consistency of your commitment to Christ. If you are not yet a Christian this book will remind you that it is God himself who takes the initiative in every conversion, that he never turns away anyone who wants him, and that he supernaturally sustains us in our life of discipleship'

Encouraging reading
5 stars By Tacito Pinto, Dec 11 2015
This book shows how God have worked in the lives of a bunch of different people during WWII.  One of the most interesting stories is about the American pastor, from German background he was a chaplain to the Nazi prisoners during the famous Nuremberg Trial. Amazing how can God use people, even in very difficult situation to make His light to shine.  Encouraging it must be read.
