Quotes

Corrie Ten Boom: Years later it was learned my release came through a clerical error, what some might call a mistake. Not long after I was set free, women my age were put to death. Yes, I am Corrie Ten Boom, in my 80's now. Some questions remain but they are not to be feared. Our Heavenly Father holds all things in His hands, even our questions. As for myself in the years since Ravensbruck, the Lord has sent me to some 60 countries and I have taught to anyone who would listen, no pit is so deep that He is not ...

A Test of Faith
29 July 2009 | by (Palm Desert, California) – See all my reviews

During the swell of Nazi Germany, the Christian ten Boom family struggle to make safe all who seek sanctuary in their home. They hire a sympathetic builder to create a hiding place in one of their rooms for when the Gestapo are near. A sympathetic German officer benevolently tries to warn the ten Booms that their hiding place is becoming well known and warns them to be extra careful as to whom they trust. What happens next focuses on the ten Boom sisters, Corrie and Betsie, and how they survive the harsh realities that face them and test their faith in God and Jesus. This was Jennette Clift's only movie role and what a role it is, as the main focus of the story, Corrie ten Boom.
