Book by Corrie ten Boom
By JESS WHITE
This is a solid book! Corrie shares simple stories of her time traveling the world reflecting on her human inadequacy in sharing “deep” things — but these stories are power-packed with the truth of God’s forgiveness and how we must extend that forgiveness to others. One of my favorite stories Corrie shares in this book is about a man she met who had a sinful past. Corrie and her friend explained the Gospel message to the man, but he didn’t understand the grand extent of God’s restoration of past sins. They shared Scripture with him and talked about fully surrendering to Christ, which later caused the man to exclaim, “I can laugh again! I haven’t been able to laugh for a year!” I was particularly blessed by this story because I realized what a joy it is that we have the same Gospel message to share with those around us. The truth hasn’t changed over time, the Good News isn’t old news, and we too can tell others of the complete sufficiency of Christ’s blood on the Cross to completely eradicate the debt of our sin. I highly recommend this book!
