This is the story of one of the most admirable, faith-filled women I've ever read about. I first read it as a teenager, and it is very much worth reading again every few years.
Corrie ten Boom and her family were arrested and sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp because they hid Jewish people in their home. She and her sister, Betsie, were able to minister to other prisoners with their prayers and a small Bible they were able to keep hidden from guards.
After she was released, Corrie traveled the world to tell others about her experiences and the power of God's forgiveness.
And so I discovered that it is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world’s healing hinges, but on His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself.
I recommend this inspiring and moving book to everyone.
Great account of two sisters and how they deal with a concentration camp after their family hides Jews from the Nazis in occupied Holland. Shows power of forgiveness (they are good Christians).
Originally published in 1971. You will need a whole box of tissues! Awesome read! I read sometime in 1984 after high school.
Everyone must read this. One of the greatest stories I've ever read, and masterfully told.
