Tell anybody the word Holocaust and ask what the first thing that comes to mind is and 9 out of 10 people will probably say Adolf Hitler or Nazis. The Lion and the Lamb by Charles Causey gives a behind the scenes insight on what really went on during the Holocaust. Many people know Adolf Hitler as the brains and wickedness behind this disaster, however, not many people have heard of or read about the other half. While Adolf Hitler was the leader of all this corruption, hundreds of Nazi leaders helped carry out his plans. From the Nazi who discovered the poisonous gas used to kill over a million Jews to the Nazis torturing the prisoners in the camps, Causey's book brings the reader into the Nazis inner circle. Meanwhile, a courageous Dutch resistance worker did her fair share in making history—by risking her life daily to keep Jews out of concentration camps. Switching between these two vastly different stories, the author brings together a book full of horror and courage, and a new, unique look into the world's most devastating event—World war II. I have always heard of and learned about Adolf Hitler in History books and such, however, I have never really heard of the other Nazi leaders. This book was amazing; it was horrific and fascinating at the same time. I could not believe all the wicked things that went on behind the scenes of World War II between the Nazis. It proved that Satan really was at work during this horrible time in history. Learning about World war II from two different points of view was unique as well. It was saddening to read about the dark and depressing Nazi side as their number one goal is power, but then inspiring to read about the light and hopeful victim side of Corrie Ten Boom as her number one goal was just to save people's lives. One side was just looking for earthly pleasures while the latter was creating eternal ones. As I read Corrie Ten Boom's side of the story, it really made me check myself and realize how truly blessed I am to live in a safe and loving home. Nowadays in America we take so many things for granted. There is such a big problem with obesity because of this; we take for granted the things that God has blessed us with. The Lion and the Lamb was an inspiring story of hope and courage in the middle of a dark and horrid war.

Excellent book comparing the architect of the Hitler regime and the woman who faced incarceration for her beliefs regarding Jews and other oppressed people.

If my high school and college textbooks had been written this way, I would have been a more eager student of history. The Lion and the Lamb is an anomaly in the genre of historical fiction because every character is real, their words are often their own, and events (between 1942-1966) are recounted chronologically. Essentially, Charles Causey’s narrative infuses the human factors of emotion and moral dilemma into what could otherwise be a dry recollection of facts. Having read The Hiding Place, I was somewhat familiar with the life and ministry of Corrie ten Boom. However, when her story is laid beside Albert Speer’s I realized several things. The first was a staggering illustration of “cause and effect.” Speer’s place in Hitler’s inner circle exposed him to many decisions which had a trickle down effect on ten Boom. Also, the way the darkness of the Reich pervaded their lives and how each reacted —Speer in his own strength and Corrie in God’s—provided a stark contrast in wisdom. Finally, while I still may not have the ability to recount times and dates, I have a better grasp of how key decisions turned the war. The Lion and the Lamb is a poignant glimpse into the past. This book held many new discoveries for me and I felt compelled by the author’s writing to examine myself and my faith. How might I have reacted in similar circumstance? This would be a wonderful title for a book discussion group or a reluctant student of history (high school/homeschool where maturity allows). With thanks to the author/publisher for providing me with a review copy. All opinions are my own.
