Spiritual Lessons from World War II
Eric Ludy shares about the series:
World War II was an epic tale. And I am like a moth to the flame of any and all things epic. I have always been fascinated by history, the events, the people, and the human challenge. But, war history, for some reason, stands out to me and deeply attracts my soul — bidding me to study it and to somehow try and comprehend it.
In the early 90’s I used to teach classes on the Civil War — and loved it. In 2018, my intrigue for war was renewed and it led to an in-depth study of WWI and WWII.
If you asked me, “Eric, why are you so interested in all this war stuff?” I would say, “Listen to this series and you will find out.” When I study war, I understand how to live more robustly as a godly man. I pray they will inspire you toward vibrant Christian living.
Here’s to going after the epic,
1933-1939 | The Rise of Hitler
A great evil is afoot; surreptitiously positioning itself to plunder the liberty of nations, to annihilate the weak, and destroy whatever is left of decency and goodwill in this earth. Meanwhile, good men all over the world turn a blind eye to this malevolent and insidious power and do nothing.
1940 | Alone in the Darkest Hour
What Hitler wants, Hitler gets. One after another, the once-powerful nations of Europe fall to the overwhelming martial force of Germany. By June of 1940, only one nation remains standing against this awful power.
1941 | The Overplay of Evil
Hitler’s and Hirohito’s craven lust for land lead them to plunge into territories that might have been better left undisturbed. And as a result, the Bear of Russia and the Eagle of America are stirred from their long winter nap and deeply angered.
1942 | Lighting the Torch
Hitler’s death camps open for business, meanwhile the tide turns in the Pacific theater and the Torch is lit in North Africa.
1943 | The Steel-Toed Boot
Mussolini falls, Italy switches sides, the Battle of Atlantic become critical, while the Allies scramble up the Boot of Italy.
1944 | Piercing the Atlantic Wall
Two-and-a-half years in the making, the monstrous Allied attack on the Normandy coastline commences and the momentous breakthrough is finally achieved.
1945 | onward to victory
Hitler falls, Hiroshima explodes, and victory sounds. But in the midst of this extraordinary comeback victory are the political maneuverings of another evil and the sudden death of one of the world’s most important leaders. The world is radically saved from the terrors of WWII . . . only to plunge into a war of a very different kind. A cold war.
