They were the wars of our grandparents and great-grandparents. Bloody, nightmarish wars that transformed the face of the globe, claimed entire families, and ushered in the nuclear age. Neither did the Christian church escape unscathed. As the world fought to save Western civilization, Christians fought too, in battles both physical and spiritual.


Their stories are heart-wrenching, challenging, and touching, and there are some stories we’d rather forget. Read them all in this expanded issue of Christian History on World Wars I and II, dedicated to those who gave all they had to ensure there would be a better tomorrow.
