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.
