The John D. Block story has valuable historical documentation reflective of an entire Germanic ethnic saga from Siberia to America.
Its highest significanceis the sensitive awareness of the Providence of God in the unfolding drama of alifetime of pilgrimage.
John's dedication to Christ and his long pastoral servanthood should inspire all who read this autobiography. The grandest accolade will be our Lord's "well done" when the earthly chapter will one day translate to eternity.
John is a very dear friend and I encourage you to read this book with awareness of the values of 'what it means to serve Christ'.
