  • black coffe
I read this book years ago and wanted a friend to read it so I bought one for her so she could enjoy the story.
  • Ka
Good book, interesting, held my attention,
  • Wymefw
Couldn't put it down. Read 'til 5 AM. Good example of how God is able to sustain a person through times of lack of spiritual understanding until the Gospel is preached to them.

Around 1918, five-year-old Herbert (Herbe) Englehardt is living in Dresden, Germany, with his mother Grete, teenage sister Emeline, and four-year-older brother William (Willie) who is somewhat mentally challenged. Herbe's father Ludwig has been away as a soldier fighting for the Kaiser during World War I. The family is looking forward to having him back after the war ends. However, when Ludwig returns home following the war, he divorces Grete, marries his new Italian girlfriend Nelda, and takes Herbe and Willie to Koln where his new job is. Herbe's mother believes that the boys need to be with their father, so she agrees but doesn't tell Herbe until the last minute.

As a result of this upheaval, Herbe is filled with an insecurity and a hunger for something solid to fill the void left in his life. Over the years, he finds that this insatiable desire isn't satisfied by his dysfunctional family life, his pseudo-religious training for possible priesthood, or his work for Adolf Hitler in the growing Nazi party. He is further disillusioned by the fact that his father alternates between doting and being distant, his step-mother seems to dislike him, his brother Willie dies unexpectedly while he is away, and when he finds a fiancé she also dies from pneumonia. Is his life nothing more than a mindless series of disappointments, pain, dashed hopes, and empty promises? What will Herbe do when he comes to a moment of crisis? Will he ever find meaning for his existence? If so, where and how?

For One Moment is based on a true account of boy who grew up in the emotional turmoil of a broken home and the political turmoil of Nazi Germany, becoming a German soldier who fought for the Nazis in World War II but eventually finding peace when he turns to Jesus Christ "in answer to a prayer. A prayer for one moment. Only one." A few instances of smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol occur, but they are minor and do not promote the practices. There are some veiled references to possible abuse at the monastery where Herbe studied for the priesthood, but they are handled discreetly. Also, several religious doctrines with which Bible believers from different backgrounds may disagree are mentioned. Someone has noted that little bits of the author's personal stance come through from time to time, especially her pacifism, but she is never preachy or didactic, rather allowing the story to tell itself. In general, it is a wholesome book with a valuable message.

Ludwig, a German soldier of the first World War, has been apart from his children, his business, and his beloved wife for years - except for rare visits. Then a flirtatious and beautiful woman named Nelda nocks his hat off with a snowbal, and his future is changed forever. And not in a good way. After the war is over, Ludwig confesses to his wife (in a letter) that he has been unfaithful to her, that he is divorcing her, that he is giving her the family business, and that he is moving far away . . . WITH THEIR SONS! The brokenhearted mother wants the best for her boys, and, believing that they need their father in their lives, she gets them ready to go. Earnie and his simpleton brother, are in for it. Follow Earnie through his childhood with only a pair of selfish adults to care for him, and then through his embittered years as a young man . . . alone. And finally as a man searching for answers, and finding them in the answer to a prayer. A prayer for one moment. Only one.

"For One Moment" is a very good book that you wont want too set down once you start reading it. It is a sad but moving book that will teach you about God and his love.
