Three days until launch date, Friday, November 1st!
This volume, Victorious: Corrie ten Boom and The Hiding Place, came upon the author unawares, when I was minding my own business. Authors, even published ones, are prone to self-doubt, and I had been going through a woe-is-me time during which I figured I had written my last book because (I feared) I no longer had a sufficient platform.
Unknown to me, a friend and associate, Jerry Root, recommended me to Jon M. Sweeney of Paraclete Press for a new project about one of evangelical Christianity’s most revered recent historical figures.
Jon asked me whether I was interested in writing about a beyond-famous 20th-century Protestant saint, Corrie ten Boom, and her best-seller The Hiding Place. It would turn out to be the first volume in Paraclete’s “Stories of Great Books” series. Was I interested? Victorious: Corrie ten Boom and The Hiding Place is the happy result.
After you read it, you will have a better vantage point from which to judge Jerry’s confidence in me.
Thank you, Jerry.
