Reviews - What do customers think about Corrie Ten Boom: Keeper of the Angels Den (Christian Heroes: Then & Now) (Christian Heroes, Then & Now)?
Introduction for children Sep 23, 2008
This book, as do many of the Benge's biographies, begins the first chapter in the middle of the story to capture the reader's attention. The second chapter goes back to Corrie's younger days and shows the reader of her background and heart for service.
This biography is a great introduction to Corrie Ten Boom for children or those unfamiliar with her life. If you are already familiar with her story, read "The Hiding Place", and "A Prisoner and Yet...".
This book would be best for children Sep 5, 2008
Corrie Ten Boom was clearly an incredible woman, but this book really only scratched the surface of her story. It didn't go in depth on any of her experiences. I would say this book would be best for children.
An ordinary woman's extraordinary testimony Aug 13, 2007
"There is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper." This is the message that Corrie ten Boom brought to the world after she went through the horrors of Nazi prison and death camp. This book will inspire you and teach young and old that God can do extraordinary and marvelous things even in bleak and terrifying surroundings.
Corrie Ten Boom was an ordinary watchmaker's daughter when her family was arrested for helping Jewish people escape the Nazi's. They were taken to prison and suffered greatly under the hands of their captors. Yet Corrie and her sister always looked towards God and where thankful for all of the blessings he gave them, such as a patch of blue sky, a hidden Bible, the women they read the Bible too. This book tells the story of Corrie and how she survived the war and went on to help others by telling them about God's love and forgiveness. Corrie learned a lot from her prison experience, but most of all, Corrie learned that by leaning on God, she can share God's love and forgiveness to all, even to her enemies and those who hurt her.
