    The history of the church under communism in the old DDR is as thrilling and spell-binding as any cold war thriller. Brave and amazing men and women such as Henry Burkhardt, Eberhard Gabler, Walter Krause, Manfred Schutze, and many many others were true heroes and pioneers in defending their faith against the god-less leaders of the Soviet-backed regime. For many years the missions of old DDR out-baptized all the west German missions combined. Amazing stories of faith, courage, and perserverance.
