Art Wiens served in Italy during the Second World War. Afterwards he studied at Wheaton College and became the leader of a group that met together to pray for those interested in missionary service - a fellow prayer group member was Jim Elliot. The two soon became fervent prayer warriors to call students to missionary work all over the world. Art's records show that over 500 Wheaton students answered that call.

Art, and his wife Erma, returned to Italy themselves as missionaries. They have devoted the last 50 years to spreading the gospel in that forgotten mission field. Their children though college educated in America, have also experienced the attraction of the country and have returned to Italy to live. The Wiens love Italy.

This book will take you into the inner workings of gospel work in Italy, where many people reject the gospel without having understood its message, and where many have never even seen or handled a Bible

It is good to be reminded that Europe is a needy mission field right on our doorstep. As an inspiration to prayer and stimulus to involvement in mission work, this is a book worth buying, reading and passing on.

Evangelical Times

A good book for all to see what is involved in being a missionary and especially for young people who are considering whether they are called to this life. It leaves one wondering why we haven't done more for Italy during these decades.
