Overview

When Corrie ten Boom was in her early fifties, she and her family joined the Dutch Underground Christian Resistance movement during World War II. Carrie's autobiography The Hiding Place, describing those war years, is a book (and movie) that millions of people worldwide are familiar with. In My Father's House is the story of Corrie's years prior to the commencement of World War II.

Corrie was a timid girl when she was young, growing up in a busy household with three older siblings, several aunts, and a mother and father wholly devoted to God and their family. From an early age, Corrie felt sympathy and compassion for those who were hurting. With a solid foundation in God's word instilled by her father Casper ten Boom (a watchmaker), Corrie spent her life reaching out to others with God's love and the Gospel message.

In My Father's House is a testament to how God prepared one family through a father's faithfulness to his Savior and the Word of God for the most sacrificial service a family could do.

Beginning in the years before Corrie was born, the book paints a beautiful picture of "family" from which today's families can glean valuable and eternally-lasting lessons.

Featuring Many Family Photos as well as Scriptures that Father Ten Boom Shared with his Wife and Children.

A compelling novel of a man brought to reckon with his buried past. In a small rural black community in Louisiana, Reverend Martin--a respected minister and civil rights leader, devoted husband and father, a man of strength and rectitude--comes face to face with the sins of his youth when a sinister stranger arrives in town.

Meet the Author

When the second world war began, CORRIE TEN BOOM was simply an ordinary, middle-aged Dutch never-married woman. By the time the conflict ended, she was literally transformed by the faith she had merely accepted, and on a mission from God. By God's grace, Corrie survived the concentration camp and became a "tramp for the Lord," sharing in more than sixty nations the thrilling message that nothing, not even death, can separate us from God's love.

    Wonderful book!

    This delightful book shows how a family faithfully served the Lord in the "easy" times before war came, and how those experiences with the Lord prepared them to be faithful and victorious during the terrible times of WWII. A wonderful book to read before or after reading The Hiding Place.
