The Witness

( 7 )

Overview

Like a sudden cloudburst the dormitory had gone into a frenzy of sound. Doors slammed, feet trampled, hoarse voices reverberated, heavy bodies flung themselves along the corridor, the very electrics trembled with the cataclysm. One moment all was quiet with a contented after-dinner-peace-before-study hours; the next it was as if all the forces of the earth had broken forth.
Paul Courtland stepped to his door and threw it back.

Overview

Like a sudden cloudburst the dormitory had gone into a frenzy of sound. Doors slammed, feet trampled, hoarse voices reverberated, heavy bodies flung themselves along the corridor, the very electrics trembled with the cataclysm. One moment all was quiet with a contented after-dinner-peace-before-study hours; the next it was as if all the forces of the earth had broken forth.
Paul Courtland stepped to his door and threw it back.
"Come on, Court, see the fun!" called the football half-back, who was slopping along with two dripping fire-buckets of water.
"What's doing?"
"Swearing-match! Going to make Little Stevie cuss! Better get in on it. Some fight! Tennelly sent 'Whisk' for a whole basket of superannuated cackle-berries"-he motioned back to a freshman bearing a basket of ancient eggs-"we're going to blindfold Steve and put oysters down his back, and then finish up with the fire-hose. Oh, the seven plagues of Egypt aren't in it with what we're going to do; and when we get done if Little Stevie don't let out a string of good, honest cuss-words like a man then I'll eat my hat. Little Stevie's got good stuff in him if it can only be brought out. We're a-going to bring it out. Then we're going to celebrate by taking him over to the theater and making him see 'The Scarlet Woman.' It'll be a little old miracle, all right, if he has any of his whining Puritanical ideas left in him after we get through with him. Come on! Get on the job!"
Drifting along with the surging tide of students, Courtland sauntered down the corridor to the door at the extreme end where roomed the victim.

    loved this book!

    Loved this book! I love it when Grace Livingston Hill brings in the social issues of the day and demonstrates how one person, devoted to Christ, can impact the lives of everyone around them, not only through words, but through action. The book begins with a young man being persecuted for his beliefs. Soon after, the young man dies saving people in a burning theater. One of the men who had stood back and watched the boy being persecuted and later witnessed his death was deeply affected by it. He searches to know God. In the meantime, he faces all sorts of temptations, but God brings him through. During this time, he begins to see the struggles of the poor, and sees the emptiness in his own life and in the life of his friends, who seek pleasure, not substance. As he learns more of God, he is transformed man who seeks to help people find the peace he has found.

    It was a wonderful book. My favorite characters were the parents of the young man who died in the beginning of the book. They were so sweet and giving. The ideal of a loving Christian. I just loved them...
