Abstract:

"Here for the first time in print is the story of a small group who dared to confront Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich with the love of Jesus Christ. Avoiding covert resistance on the one hand and complicity and compromise on the other, the Rhön Bruderhof, under the courageous leadership of Eberhard Arnold, boldly witnessed to the politics of the Kingdom of God in Nazi Germany. Although "less than a gnat to an elephant," in Arnold's words, they believed that as God's ambassadors love could overcome hatred--even of Adolf Hitler himself. This is an amazing account of a community who stayed true to the nonviolent way of the cross, and how, despite relentless Nazi opposition, God protected and victoriously led them along the way."--Publisher's website.
