book illustrates a life well lived
Simply and humbly written, yet this book shows that the life lived by Corrie Ten Boom and her family was a preparation for their incredible trials in Germany's concentration camps. Far from sheltered, the Ten Boom life was full of learning language and music, teaching the young, foster care and socializing with others who may or may not have shared their faith.
Cynical readers today may find this life hopelessly Victorian and archaic but the faith of the Ten Boom family reveals a Christian faith that loves beauty and learning, generosity and forgiveness that makes today's Christian culture seem hopelessly commericialized and compromised.
God help us recapture the simple faith of Corrie Ten Boom.
