Yearning for the Living God

Yearning for the Living God
F. Enzio Busche
4 Stars
This autobiographical book of a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy was sent to me by my mother who has heard Edler Bushe speak. Once she saw it in the stores she was so excited to read the book.
F. Enzio was born in Germany in 1930, just three years before Hitlers rise to power. The story shows reflections of his life as a prisoner of war, being drafted into the German army and living his life full of questions about God.
F. Enzio made a commitment to himself that he would find answers to his question and in time he did find them. The book tells about his testimony and powerful experiences he has had in the church.
One other reason my mother was so excited to find this and found it so interesting was that we have German roots on both sides of her family. It was so interesting to think that my ancestors might have struggled with these same issues.

I read the book and loved it. I was in Dortmund as a missionary in 1968 when Brother Busche was Ruhr District President.
