Rercenzija “Dynamite in Europe”

1. “Dynamite in Europe” is a documentary book. It contains fragments from the life of evangelist James Stewart who lived in the middle of XX century. We can divide the book into two parts: the first tell us about James’ difficult childhood and adoles-cence, the second – about his life, as devoted servant of God.

2. The main characters are James Stewart, his wife Ruth and the author. But of cource there are some characters, who become the main in specific chapters. It iss for example “heretic” Jan Huss, minister Aladar Szabo, president of Czechoslovakia Masaryk and others. The book contains interesting and some times amazing facts of their lives and deeds; about a heritage they left us.

3. An action takes place in very different places of Central and Eastern Europe. “Dynamite in Europe” tell us about the great work of Holy Spirit, through a simple man – James Stewart – in Czechoslovakia, the land of Moravia, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Carpatho-Ruthenia, Yugoslavia, Latvia and Ukraine. So acction is moving from one place to another quite often.

4. The book accounts the time during World War II, when the land where James Stewart was preaching, were occupy by Nazi forces. “Dynamite in Europe” very picturesque describe the situation of

f that period of time. There are a lot of pictures that show a hard life of people during the war, violence and compulsion of Nazis.

5. The main idea that I had noticed before and that lasted till the end is that God is not dead. He is alive and He can live in our hearts and express Himself very strongly through us by doing great things. But only if we want Him to do it.

6. I think this book is interesting for two kinds of people: a) who is interested in history, amazing facts of it; b) who is interested in spiritual life. This book is a great encouragement for everybody who believes in God, who fill the power of Holy Sppirit in daily life, have Jesus in his heart or want to have all this things. I choose “Dynamite in Europe” for reading not only because of attractive title, but because I was looking for something unusual, differ from our daily life, – and I find it here.
