I stood in front of the huge and awe-inspiring memorial of Martin Luther and read the words that had gone around the world:
“Here I stand; I can do no other…”
At that moment I did not know that just a short while later, these exact words would come to mind. God would speak the truth through me and later on, proclaim them to the whole world.
As I am writing this book, I feel as if I am living through all these many moments again. Some of it makes me smile, but much of it makes me think again. The situation in our country is very troubling.
How many times I have been sad in recent years, when I thought about Germany or when the subject was brought up abroad, and how often tears came to my eyes. The Germans are not only a divided people; they are also wounded and not free.
