Read this today while staying home from church with a sick child. After reading The Hiding Place recently, I really enjoyed reading this book that tells of Corrie Ten Boom's progenitors and of her father Casper's life. You can see how the Lord prepared her family from generations before for the work that she and her family would do years later for Jewish people. Her grandfather and father had a great love for the Jewish people and in 1844 her grandfather started weekly prayer meetings in their h...more
Again, as I've said of Corrie's other books, anything written by Corrie Ten Boom is well worth reading. This one was particularly fascinating because you got to learn about her family history. Her ancestors prayed for the Jewish people not knowing that many years later Corrie, her father and sister would save Jews from certain death in the very same house that they had prayed in.

I enjoyed learning about a different time, culture and lifestyle. It was also amazing to see how much is the same, in...more

You discover a very important reality regarding corrie ten boom's family. Their heart for God's chosen people began generations before her. This book allows you a deep insight into God preparing this family for a important purpose and a lasting testimony declaring God's faithfulness to His people.
This is one of my most favorite books. Corrie shares the history of her family a few generations back, how God had put it into her ancestor's hearts to love and protect the Jewish people from the rising tide of anti-Semitism, even in the church. Beautiful book!
Anything by Corrie Ten Boom is wonderful and this is no exception. Love reading about the example her father was to her and trying to glean bits of his godly wisdom through reading this book.
So inspirational! A MUST read just to see what others have overcome through faith. It really encourages you!

They were hiding, feeding and transporting Jews and underground members hunted by the Gestapo out of the country. It is e...more
