One day until launch date, Friday, November 1st!
Victorious is part biography, part literary analysis, part devotional, part history, and part cultural analysis. In it you will get reacquainted with many familiar friends (Corrie, Betsie, Casper, the Bulldog, Willem, Andrew, Billy) and be introduced to plenty of new ones (Elizabeth, Klara, Erika, Pam, Martin, Jeannette).
If you’ve already read The Hiding Place, you’ll love Victorious, which brings new meaning and context to this classic work, including some little-known facts on how the book and movie came to be. If you haven’t, it’s a terrific, standalone introduction. In either case, you’ll gain fresh insight about how to live and thrive in an uncertain world.
It’s time to meet Corrie ten Boom all over again.
