Journey Book Club

Time got away from us with the busy month of July, so we will be skipping the July meeting at instead meet on August 15, 2019 at 6:30 at the church. We are also changing the book selection and will instead be going with the book, A Higher Call: An Incredible True Story of Combat and Chivalry in the War-Torn Skies of World War II. See below for book information. All are welcome to attend the book club! If you have any questions, please contact the church office at jofdisciples@gmial.org

December, 1943: A badly damaged American bomber struggles to fly over wartime Germany. At the controls is twenty-one-year-old Second Lieutenant Charlie Brown. Half his crew lay wounded or dead on this, their first mission. Suddenly, a Messerschmitt fighter pulls up on the bomber’s tail. The pilot is German ace Franz Stigler—and he can destroy the young American crew with the squeeze of a trigger...

What happened next would defy imagination and later be called “the most incredible encounter between enemies in World War II.”
