Book Review: Timely and Profitable Help for Troubled Americans, by Hans J. Schneider

Mr. Schneider is uniquely qualified to write a full-spectrum survival manual! That was his intention, and he did a pretty good job. He was born in 1935 Germany as Hitler was rising to power, survived WW2, and then another 5 years of Russian Communism. Escaping that, he used all the powers that were developed under those brutal conditions to develop his freedom, living a very frugal and daring life.

His intimate knowledge of history has helped him understand the cause and symptoms leading up to trouble in the world, and how to prepare for and deal with it. Very few Americans understand the foundations of the world-system as well as he does. Also, his experience in real-life catastrophes has swept away many delusions that befog inexperienced authors. And his relationship to the divine Source of wisdom, and his faith in the Bible, have guided him along in sure paths.

He has been preaching preparedness across the nation since 1961, and at the same time, has been living a lifestyle of preparedness. For nearly 40 years, he has been living on a homestead in Oregon, 37 miles from town, with no phone or electricity. His children were raised there, and it has provided a wonderful base from which to conduct his global ministry.
