Description

There is only one place to turn when you have nowhere to go. No Man's Land has been blown into oblivion. The earth is scorched from the most intensive bombardment of industrial artillery the world has ever seen. Yet, from this landscape of mud and blood, poppies grow. Red poppies, which came to symbolize hope, and what was billed as "The Great War" and "The War to End All Wars." Heart of the Poppy is a true story spanning one hundred plus years that has never been fully told. It is a story of devastation, life, camaraderie, hope and faith in action. Originating in the trenches of the Western Front during World War I, the impudent dreams of an Anglican Padre create a worldwide Christian movement with the strange name of Toc H. A grand friendship between a young boy in California with an elderly international statesman in Washington, D.C. start Project Mexico with Toc H to help orphans and the homeless. Circumstances lead to the Tijuana Dump and another worldwide Christian movement known as Amor Ministries begins while the Dump is transformed into a thriving community. All this, from one of the most indefensible positions of World War I. Heart of the Poppy will amaze you. It will take you back and propel you through one hundred years of faith in action, telling a story of how God transcends time, history and His followers. Author Dan Irving has travelled to Belgium, the UK, Washington, D.C., Mexico, South Africa and San Diego. He has conducted numerous interviews and researched many books along with visiting historical archives to research the truth and authenticity of this story. Author Irving found himself with the personal and amazing perspective that could link two worldwide Christian Movements together. It took almost a decade and a tremendous amount of research. In the end came Heart of the Poppy, a grand one hundred year story revealing how God uses us to work His will.
