"We must believe with all our hearts and souls that He is with us. He is a God of love!" So shouted Jakob, the evangelist, as the German tanks roared across Yugoslavian soil, and machine guns, motorcycles and Messerschmitts screamed in the hills.

Out of the sky came the Stukas. They nosed over, dropped their bombs and veered off into the cold blue. The wagon in front of them was hit. The donkey was dead, and the driver lay mutilated in the brush at the side of the road.

"This is war," said the gray-clad officer. "The only place you will be safe is in the grave."

Weak and divided, the Yugoslavians fought back. Their ill-equipped guerrillas chewed on the German army like vermin on the flanks of a stallion. They cut phone lines, laid mines, dynamited bridges and blew up armored cars. Their stubborn war cry was, "Better grave than slave!" But, for every German they killed a hundred Yugoslavs were shot in retaliation.

In the midst of this living hell, Jakob, Jozeca and other believers clung to God and prayed for both friend and foe. The enemies of their beloved homeland could burn their cities and towns, but they could not destroy their souls or quench their indomitable spirits.

Marie Chapian went to Yugoslavia and interviewed peasants, gypsies, factory workers, doctors, laborers, and officials of the Communist party. She wanted to know how the Christians' faith was sustained through those terrible years of war, famine and cold. She learned that they had simply clung to God with an almost incredible fait

  • By Antoinette on April 7, 2017

    Would that more people would read this book, and the reality of what this family went through .. which isn't a movie which can end at the flick of a button/switch.

  • By Louise P. on March 3, 2015

    A reality check about how the Christian faith not only sustains believers in the midst of hardship and persecution but causes them to flourish. The proclamation of the Gospel is facilitated by the faithfulness of Christian believers even unto death. Very relevant to the 21st Century! Recommended for all ages from teens to seniors!

    "Of Whom the World Was Not Worthy" is a wonderful book that is no longer in print. I was so happy to find it used at Amazon. I loved the book and highly recommend it. It is the amazing historical account of a young woman who was a true soldier for the Lord during the devastating times of World War II in eastern Europe.

    This book is a must read. Some people go through unbelievable struggles in life. This story is true story of war in Yugoslavia and the struggles of a family and how prayer was their answer. God does hear us when we pray. Such a faith builder.

    A stirring story of Christian Yugoslavic victims during Nazi conquest and occupation. A strong encouragement to keep the faith even in times oif trouble. The title is taken from Hebrews 11, the Hall of Faith chapter in the Bible, which lists men and women of courageous and persevering faith counting them as those "of whom the world was not worthy." Powerful book
