This book is a historical record of the Holocaust as seen through the eyes of Bible prophecy. It by no means offers a complete account of the Holocaust -- not at all. But it does offer a comprehensive account of what the biblical prophets of Israel had to say about it.
The release of this book on September 1, 2009, commemorated the seventieth anniversary of the beginning of the Second World War -- the war Adolf Hitler had declared would result in the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe. It did actually result in the resurrection of Israel after two-thousand years of statelessness.
From the Editor, Susanne Lakin
Nigel Woodley's book, Holocaust Exposed, is a thoughtful and sensitive exploration of Bible prophecy as it pertains to the rise of Nazi Germany and the subsequent brutal persecution and attempted genocide of the Jewish people. Woodley masterfully presents Scriptures that go into achingly pointed detail about the atrocities foretold to come upon the Jews in Europe, as well as reveal how this people were warned in advance of the horrors to come.
As a Christian with a Jewish background, with numerous relatives having died in gas chambers and concentration camps under the Third Reich, I can attest that this book -- contrary to what one might think -- is a great comfort and full of hope. Woodley shows how God's promise to restore Israel to her homeland and re-establish her as a people returned to her promised soil did not fail. In fact, the Bible shows that it is because of God's promise to restore favour to Israel that prompts the attempted genocide of His people -- a plot that nearly succeeded, were it not for God's intervention on many fronts, showing his miraculous hand manoeuvring events, resulting in Israel restored to her homeland only short months after the end of World War II. Much of these miraculous doings of God are foretold centuries earlier in Scripture, and bring the reader to an understanding of a merciful, loving, and compassionate God. My prayer is that Jews the world over will take time to read this book with an open mind and heart, as the Holocaust is the reason so many have lost faith in their Creator, unable to understand how and why a loving God could allow such horror to occur. This book will answer any doubt to great satisfaction. I plan to send it to all of my Jewish relatives to read. It is time for Jews to heal from this horrible dark period in history, and Woodley's book is just the balm needed.

His father, Stewart Woodley, was a police sergeant who with the help of his wife, Anne, founded the Fellowship in 1980. Nigel is the twin of Stephen, who was the Fellowship's first leader of intercessory prayer for Israel. Stephen zealously led God's troops in prayer at a time when Israel's intifada of 2000 was raging. He is now at home with the Lord.

Nigel has had a keen interest in Israel for many years, having visited the nation twice and studied the biblical aspect of Israel both historically and prophetically. He has a genuine love for the nation and for the Jewish people, and a sense of the revelation of God regarding those things he writes about. He is a student of Modern Hebrew.
