Somehow Corrie Ten Boom is able to make life issues not only clear, but also simple. Part of it is her history. When one is surviving moment by moment in a Nazi death camp, what the priorities are, what is critical, can't help but weed out much of what one was previously agonizing over. Her survival despite all odds gives her credibility. Her words aren't theory, they are the truth that sustained her.
That said, Miss Ten Boom has more to offer than her story. She has learned more than most from her experiences. And while many would pontificate, she instead encourages. She corrects without accusing. She accepts our failures as hers as well. Instead of offering solutions, she offers help. Though confident in her beliefs, she isn't bombastic.
