A small group of us meets at Dervock Presbyterian Church manse, usually on the last Friday of the month at 2:30pm. We enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat through a book that we’ve read over the course of the previous month. Here’s some of the books and comments on them that we’ve read so far-
“Our first book ‘God’s Smuggler’ introduces you to a teenage boy who goes out in the middle of the night to play tricks on invading Germans and from then on wards you will be hooked to follow his adventures which even shocked himself becoming a Christian and finding God’s plan smuggling bibles into communist countries leading to a worldwide organisation today- Open Doors!”
The Hiding Place- “This is the inspirational story of Corrie Ten Boom who said ‘every experience God gives us, every person he puts in our life is the perfect preparation for the future that only God can see.’ Spinster Corrie in her fifties, sister and elderly father a watchmaker in Holland were a respected and loved christian family, shown at the start of the book when everyone called to celebrate the shop’s 100th birthday. But when Jews started to be persecuted, her Father referred to them as God’s chosen people and Corrie hid them with God guiding her to safe contacts they knew, including in a secret room which lead to the family’s arrest and imprisonment in a concentration camp. Even here, with the death of her father and sister, she knew ‘there is no pit which God’s love is not still deeper’ and as each new need arose a new answer came from God.”
So far, we’ve read –
- God’s Smuggler- Brother Andrew
- Just do it- Kevin Deyoung
- The Hiding Place- Corrie Ten Boom
