Book Club Wednesday 12/07/11

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. In God's providential timing, I am reading Evidence Not Seen by Darlene Deibler Rose. Darlene and her husband, Russell, were missionaries in New Guinea when World War II started. I read chapters 1 through 3 this week, and the beginning of chapter 3 describes the scene when they first heard the news of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The author describes it this way: "A day that would live in infamy. America was now a participant in the global conflict." She then went on to describe and link together events from the past year that led up to that fatal day. It was fascinating to read about this historical event as told by one who was living through it. Darlene was in her early 20's when World War II started.

Chapters 1-3 were pre-war days and described Russell and Darlene's missionary work with the natives of New Guinea. The author's excitement for the work and love for the people of New Guinea is contagious.

I hope you're reading along. This is a hard book to put down. I look forward to reading your comments.

  1. I read this book a few months ago-I agree. She's a wonderful example of staying true to Christ in the most difficult circumstances.

    (P.S. Have you thought of using "The Hiding Place", by Corrie Ten Boom for your book club?)
