From the Inside Flap
F. Enzio Busche was born in Germany in 1930, three years before Adolph Hitler's rise to power. When World War II began, he was still a young boy, sheltered by the love of his parents. When the war ended, he was a prisoner of war, having been drafted into the German army at age fourteen.
The war left Enzio in a state of melancholy and full of questions: Who is man? Is there a God? What is the purpose of life? What happens after death?
To find the answers to his questions, Enzio made a commitment to go to the ends of the earth in search of the Living God. In time, he found what he was yearning for.
Today, he has literally traveled the world over as a member of the First Quorum of Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He has spoken in forty-one countries of the world, including eighteen that were part of the Eastern Bloc. He has visited and spoken in seventeen Islamic cities, forty-four states of the United States, seven provinces of Canada, and eighty cities in his homeland of Germany. On more than four thousand different occasions, he has stood as a witness of truth, always bearing testimony of a loving Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ.
In both his spiritual search for truth and his later travels as a respresentative of the gospel of Jesus Christ, Elder F. Enzio Busche has beheld many extraordinary events. "Yearning for the Living God" is a collection of Elder Busche's reflections on those events and an account of the life-changing awakening that can come to all who search for truth is this world.
