Product Description

Review

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 --From the foreword by Stuart Olyott

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Mark Loughridge VINE VOICE on 17 Oct. 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of short biographies from World War II. It recounts what God did through some of teh key and women caught up in the war. What a wonderful book. Not only did it encourage me to read of God's amazing grace, but it stirred my heart with compassion.
Stephens is a man who has had a passion for WWII, but he also has a passion for communicating the life-changing grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and this shows in his writing. He has been collecting this information over the last number of decades, and he assembles it here in a series of thrilling accounts.
Like most males, war has held a fascination for me, especially the two world wars. I grew up on a diet of Victor, Battle and Warlord comics, and the little 'Commando' comic story booklets. The tales of bravery and courage were inspiring. But I never really had heard much of what God was doing in those years. Here Stephens fills the void.
Not only does he show the courage and the stand Christians took, but he shows how God worked to bring hate-filled atheists to Christ and turned them into powerful missionaries.
I had heard of some of names before: William Dobbie, the defender of Malta; Mitsuo Fuchida, the lead pilot in the Pearl Harbour attack. I had read about some of them before: Charles Fraser-Smith, the real 'Q'; Donald Caskie, Scottish pastor in France who ran an escape route for airmen and soldiers. But often in newspaper reports and in books written about them their faith is left aside. Stephens redresses the balance and brings out overpowering influence of the gospel in their lives.
Perhaps for me the highlight was the story of Henry Gerecke, chaplain to the highest ranking Nazis at the Nuremberg trials.

If you want a book which compels you in your Christian life, this is the one for you. ‘War and Grace’ is a book about the lives of men and women who were influenced by the bible and its teachings during World War 2. This book tells the stories of several different people from a Japanese bomber pilot who led the attacks on Pearl Harbour, to the real life Q.
The extreme emotional stress of war is a thing not many of us can even begin to comprehend. This book allows us to see a small insight of those moments of distress and how the men and women dealt with it.
One of the stories is about an American Chaplain who witnessed to the Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials. In this story you see a number of men, once feared for being very evil, come to know Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
This book allowed me to see that the word of God can bring a man to him, no matter what that man has done in his past, and He will forgive him or her. He won’t just do that for them but for me and you as well.
Haig Smith

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By G. J. Weeks on 27 Jan. 2006
Format: Paperback
Thirteen brief biographies of people, all but one of whom lived through the second World War. Six became Christians during the war in the most adverse of circumstances. Three Americans, two Germans, two Japanese, one Dutch and five Britons are featured. In all the stories, what comes through most strongly is that the grace of God can reach into the most extreme situations and to the greatest sinners, even war criminals facing death
This is a book that is very hard to put down. Well written, easily read, it moves ones heart to read of how God's grace changes and sustaines lives. A thrilling book I cannot commend too highly.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barnes on 22 Oct. 2007
Format: Paperback
War and Grace is a terrific book. It contains thirteen mini-biographies all involving people caught up in the First or Second World Wars.

The stories are wonderfully varied. Some show how Christians involved in the conflict were helped and strengthened by their faith. Others tell of those converted during or following the war. There are stories of generals and civilians, and of both men and women. The stories tell of Americans, Britons, Germans and Japanese, of those who survived the war, as well as those who did not.

What marks this book out is the obvious love Don Stephens has the people he writes about. The following comment is not uncommon: `For over thirty years I have had the privilege of writing and speaking to...' War and Grace is truly a labour of love. You feel that the author knows each of the men and women in the book, and as a result the reader feels he knows and understands them, too.

It would make a great gift for a teenage boy (and it's not often you can say that about a Christian book). It's real Boys' Own stuff - though I hope that doesn't put off ladies from reading it too. Did you know the Japanese pilot who led the attack on Pearl Harbour was later converted? Were you aware that the British secret agent who was the inspiration for 007's `Q' was a Christian? Had you realised the chaplain to Goering, Hess and the other Nazi leaders at Nuremburg was a believer? If not, you need to read War and Grace.

Almost everyone will enjoy and be helped by this book. The gospel is very clearly explained within each story, and therefore has great evangelistic potential. Yet believers will read it and be both challenged and encouraged. So buy at least two copies - one for yourself and one to give away!
