Two days until launch!

Al Janssen

Two days until launch date, Friday, November 1st!

Brother Andrew

When I began researching the life of Corrie, I knew I needed help. One friend I turned to was Al Janssen, a writer who has worked for many years with Corrie’s longtime friend and ministry associate, Brother Andrew. Al graciously shared five stories from Andrew (or “Anne,” as Corrie nicknamed him) for use in Victorious: Corrie ten Boom and The Hiding Place.

Here is one of them:

“One day she was in East Germany. She was often there. Maybe not as much as I was, but she loved East Germany. Of course, she was fluent in German. She was addressing a large group in a cathedral—it was filled with theologians. She gave her message like she always did, standing in the pulpit. Then there was time for questions. One theologian stood up and said, “Miss Ten Boom, don’t you think that women should be silent in the churches like the Apostle Paul has taught us.” Everyone held their breath. Corrie had just delivered a terrific speech. She stood and stretched her back and looked at the group and said, “Alleluia, Nein!” With such tremendous conviction. No one challenged her on that point. But since that time she was known in East Germany as “Alleluia, Nein.” A wonderful combination.”

Thank you, Al!
