Item description for Escape from Terror: A True Story of Deliverance from the Iron Fist of Communism and Nazi Slavery by Bill Basansky & David Manuel...
Overview Escape From Terror vividly depicts a true story of God's supernatural ability to restore, deliver, and redeem those held captive by the devil. Follow the exciting life of Dr. Bill Basansky from birth in the Ukraine at a time when it was part of the former Soviet Union. The German occupation forced his family from their home, and they were confined in Nazi prison camps during World War II. They were miraculously delivered by God and brought to America after the war. Later serving in the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Basansky suffered an injury that left his legs paralyzed. In desperation, he cried out to God and was miraculously healed and instantly set free from eight years of drug addiction. After accepting the Lord Jesus Christ, and later being filled with the Holy Sprit, he went on to receive his Master's degree from the University of Oklahoma, and his PhD in Psychology and Counseling from Union University in California. Dr. Basansky now pastors Life International Church in Fort Myers, Florida, and ministers around the world, challenging believers to live victoriously.
Publishers Description For many, faith tends to weaken during times of duress. But in his new release, Escape From Terror, author and pastor Bill Basansky discusses how believers can use trials and adversities to grow in faith. In Escape From Terror (Creation House Press, pub date 2005, price) Basansky chronicles his childhood as a Ukrainian in Nazi prison camps during World War II. He also shares the impact of the gospel on his life as an adult, which resulted in a dramatic healing as well as him being empowered to evangelize by the Holy Spirit. He writes: ?The boldness of a young Christian full of the new wine of the Holy Spirit is sometimes breathtaking to behold, as he sets about sharing the most beautiful gift in the world-even with people who may not want the gift at all. At the same time the Holy Spirit was teaching me how to (and how not to) share Jesus with strangers. He was about to make further use of my naive enthusiasm.? Written for anyone who has been through adverse situations, Basansky's book will inspire readers to push through life's challenges despite how bleak circumstances may seem. Drawing from his own testimony, he provides readers with numerous anecdotes of God's supernatural provision and protection when things appeared hopeless. From narrowly eluding a German fighter-plane attack in Russia to escaping a California street gang as a police officer to becoming a minister of the gospel, Basansky takes readers along on his adventurous life and allows readers to enter the world of a man that has not only survived conventional warfare for his physical body, but also for his soul. Escape From Terror is a perfect resource for anyone who desires to grow in faith and no longer walk as a victim, but as a victor.

Suspenseful book of real life adventure and faith Feb 12, 2009
I read this book as an 8th grader in the early 80's and always remembered its title and author because it was incredibly moving. I recently ordered it for my 12 year old son because he loves to read adventure stories. He enjoyed it as well. This book begins as Bill Basansky remembers his childhood growing up in the Ukraine before and during WWII. The Communists made life miserable for them, practically starving them to death because they were resistant to the government's socialist "reforms." His little village actually rejoices when taken over by the invading Nazis. Life is not good for long, however, and his family's unbelievable escape from Russia, to a Nazi prison camp, and finally to America is a thrilling adventure of determination and miraculous intervention. The book includes much of his life after reaching America as well, which is slower-paced but still good reading. Much of the latter part of the book is about his slow conversion to acceptance of God's control of his life, while battling chronic pain, drug addiction, and alcoholism.
