Item description for When I See the Blood by Elfriede Mollon...
Overview The author's spiritual odyssey starts as a young girl in the midst of a ravaging war, in Berlin. Stimulated by a teacher's remarks about the Jews' bloody religion of sacrifices, and her disparaging speech dismissing Jesus as stupid for giving up his life instead of living for his idea (as Hitler did), she begins her unpromising search, but finds God in an astonishing and miraculous way. The war years take their toll. The family is displaced and separated. Later, against all odds, they are reunited after months, and they set out on their arduous trek home to Berlin. The post-war years exact even more hardships: people die from exposure and starvation in great numbers, and hunger drives many to desperate acts of utter depravity. By then she has become a teenager with universal teenage ideas, emotions, and ambitions. God is teaching her to learn from her foolish mistakes. Immigrating to the United States, she is faced with more trials, but because of her relationship with Jesus Christ she is able to weather them in his strength, and with his joy and peace. This is a fictionalized family drama concerning a Desert Storm veteran. Through a life rich in triumphs and tragedies, the family remains a strong unit. The protagonist graduates from the Naval Academy and joins the Marines. Deployed to the Persian Gulf, he returns changed through neurological damage, which sends his health spiraling down, disabling him to the extent that his kidneys stop functioning. Dialysis gives hope for healing, but since publication this veteran has been called home.

When I See the Blood...... Oct 22, 2003
"When I See the Blood......" is extremely interesting and informative. I was so caught up in the plot, wanting to know what would happen next that it was hard to put the book down. Some parts were very sad and and heart rending while other portions were so humorous that I couldn't keep from laughing out loud. The characters, their experiences and feelings all seemed very real and personal. It is genuinely well written.

It was a shock to the author, as a little girl, when the teacher declared, plain and simple, that Jesus had been a good man - but stupid. He should have lived for his idea, like Hitler, she said, not given his life! After all, where would Germany be if Hitler died? And calling himself Son of God was preposterous. Now she didn't know what to believe. The teacher was so beautiful, like an angel of light, and adored by all the pupils. She just couldn't be wrong! Little did she realize that it was a specialty of Satan's to transform himself into an angel of light in order to deceive people who might be close to the kingdom. But God! His tremendous power was going to override all of Satan's wiles! Working miracles. Turning around the very ruse Satan had used and causing the girl to intensify her search that would lead her to the truth! There was much she had to learn. The rigors of war, devastation, separation, loss, hunger, depravity - each experience was used by God to teach valuable lessons that would culminate in the revelation of the mystery of what God will do when he sees the blood......
