Of Whom The World Was Not Worthy, by Marie Chapian, is one of the most moving books I have read during my Christian walk. It truly lives up to it's name, because the family described in this book, primarily Jacob Kovac and his wife, Jozeca, were truly of whom the world was not worthy. The faith that they held on to, while enduring one of the most horrific times our world has ever seen, is truly awe inspiring. I'm still amazed at how Jozeca managed to have three children under the circumstances she lived in. Especially the second child which she gave birth to during the war. She was on the battlefield away from her husband and family and stayed there supporting the resistance effort until she went into labor. Jozeca was a woman of prayer, and the LORD Jesus heard and answered her prayers. This book is truly a reminder that our God is an awesome God and "For with God nothing shall be impossible."(Luke 1:37). This book was wonderful to read and if you are going through any faith trials right now, just read this book and it will help you get a new perspective on your situation.

Format: Paperback
This book is a biography about a husband and wife who truly understand and believe in the power of prayer. I've read so many "how to" books on prayer, but this story tells the true life experiences of a woman so close to God, that she knows her prayers will be answered, she prays without ceasing, and has the faith of a mustard seed. Set in Yugoslavia around WWII, the reader is moved to truly appreciate all that God has supplied. Great story. A little hard to follow at first with the foreign names and places, but stick to it. Life changing reading.

This is the most inspirational book I have ever read. My heart was broken and convicted so deeply as I read of the prayer-lives of the invidividuals within its pages. May it challenge you as it has me.

Format: Paperback
The closing quotation of the book is a godly mother's exhortation to her sons:

"Janez, Josip---listen to me. Tell them in America and all over the world that we love God. Tell them about us in the Balkans. Tell them about our great God who loves all men. Tell them about Him, my sons. He will help you.

She looked at the faces of her sons, strong, unafraid to suffer, unafraid to sacrifice, with hearts as gentle as lambs, yet brave as bulls. 'Because of these sons of mine whom the Lord gave to Jakob Kavoc and me.' she thought, 'and to thousands of believers all over the world from America to Australia, there is hope. Hope for Jugoslavia, hope for the whole world.' And she believed that.

"Of Whom The World Was Not Worthy" was published in 1978, eleven years before the Berlin Wall fell. At the time, it would have been dangerous to reveal their identities. Although a slice of my personal life story touched that of Janez and Josip Kovac (their real names are Marijan & Martin Hlasten) at a little village in Germany and then in Sweden during the early 70s, almost 40 years would pass before we'd be linked in a fellowship of the heart.

This review is submitted while I'm a guest in the home of Marijan & Jackie Hlasten in McKinney, Texas (2/28/2010)

Read it about 45 years ago and never forgot it. My favorite all time book. I guess I would still feel the same way about it. It is Timeless and true.

This book is not only a page turner, but it will affect the reader profoundly. I've read it three times with the same brokenness and conviction each time. I believe it will cause each reader to search his/her own soul and think about how how he/she would respond in similar circumstances as the characters in this true story. It motivates the reader to take steps to build a depth of relationship with God that will stand up to such testing. It details faith in everyday practice that prays against incredible evil and stands against all odds--until victory comes. The testimony of the characters in this book leaves the reader with renewed hope in a loving, faithful God.

This is the best book I have ever read. It has really restored my faith and changed my life. I met the son Yanni and he is truly a faithful man. I did not know anyone with such a string faith. The story really makes you appreciate what we have.
