About this title:

Synopsis: This is the fascinating true story of a twenty-something couple who left the security of the United States for the villages of Nazi-occupied Poland before the start of World War II, where they brought the gospel of personal Christianity to an oppressed people who knew only the heavy hand of the Roman Catholic church and the booted heel of Nazi occupiers. As the clouds of war closed in on them, they escaped by the skin of their teeth to become rural pastors in Montana, but only sufficiently long for the war to end. In 1950 they returned to war-ravaged Europe to reassemble the pieces of their pre-war ministry. With the looming threat of the Iron Curtain, Paul Williscroft extended his ministry, finding ways to penetrate political and military barriers throughout Eastern Europe with the gospel of peace. Their story reads like a novel, but it all happened. Paul and Gladys Williscroft had a mission in life: to offer faith, hope and love to people without hope in a world gone mad.

About the Author: Gladys Williscroft (nee Buck) was born in 1912, attended the Northwest Bible Institute in Seattle, where she met and married Paul Williscroft. They traveled to Poland as missionaries, returned to Montana as WW II broke out (there their children Robert and Beverly were born), and returned to Europe in 1950, following the end of the conflict.

With the exception of several sojourns in the US to raise support funds, they spent the rest of Paul's life in Germany where they actively pursued religious education for German-speaking Europeans, children's religious education, and where they founded what was to become the largest religious publishing house in Europe: The Leuchter Verlag. When Paul passed away in 1987, Gladys returned to the US. She lived alternatively with Robert and Beverly, working on this book, and living her life to the fullest. She lived to see the book published, and passed away in 2002, in her 90th year.
