Couldn't put it down everyone should read!
May 28, 2012
One of my favorite old movies is the Bridge over the river Kwai, somehow God lead me to the true story of what happened during those events. The movie version pales in comparison to the miracles that took place in the pit of hell these men found themselves. And how dignity and heroism was alive in the midst of such depravity. And just how God moved in the hearts of these men in the middle of their darkest days. It is an incredible true story and everyone should read this book believer or non believer like the Hiding Place, it will impact your faith forever. Recently I watch the movie version of this book and it was difficult to watch but again it could not tell the details that were in the book fully. MUST READ THE BOOK and share it especially a men's group. I'm a real girly girl but I so touched by this war story. Warning it has extreme graphic violent content.
Ernest Gordon was a captain in the Scottish Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders regiment serving in Sumatra at the beginning of WWII. He and those who served with him were taken prisoners and forced to build the Burma railroad, including the infamous "Bridge over the River Kwai". The cost was high, 60,000 Allied POWs and 270,000 Asian workers were made salves, for each mile of the railroad 393 lives were lost. They saw how low man can sink but they also saw, by the power of the Almighty God, how high man can rise. This is an inspiring true story, well worth reading. Through these trials God molded and changed many men giving them "the will to survive and the courage to forgive", who after the war used the compassion and love God showed them the help there fellow man.
