Book Description

In March of 1942, 7,000 American, British, and Dutch Japanese POWs on the island of Java were ordered into camps.

Dolf Unger, a Corporal in the Dutch Royal Army was one of these soldiers. Newly married with an infant daughter, Dolf was not to see his wife and daughter for over three years. This book is a compilation of articles, letters, and mementoes documenting his camp experiences. Dolf’s story is not just one of survival, but of spiritual transformation.

For Dolf, this transformation began one cold fall day when he was forced to shovel scrap metal. In a moment of utter despair, as he cried out silently to God, he kicked a pile of scrap metal. God’s answer came in the form of a perfectly shaped four-inch iron cross, which landed on his boot. Dolf soon became involved in a Christian community in the camp called “The Church Under The Cross”. The spiritual growth and transformation of this community of sick, starving, and often beaten men offers a greater context to Dolf’s own spiritual Journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spiritual Journey To Freedom in Christ September 28, 2013
By Rosette
Verified Purchase
What an amazing account this is, of the author's years as a prisoner of war: how his faith in God increased during that difficult time; how he related to others; and strikingly, the freedom he found in Christ in spite of his imprisonment. It is inspirational to read how he and the other Christians in the camps worshipped ecumenically, and served their fellow prisoners; how they established a faith community - the "Church Under the Cross" in the camps; and how they viewed Christ as suffering in their midst with them.
The author's entering ministry after his release and his long career as a Pastor bears witness to the faith that grew and had become so strong during those difficult years.
I highly recommend this inspirational account of a remarkable man's faith and courage, which hopes to point the reader to true freedom in Christ - as the book's subtitle states, "the decision is always ours."
