YWAM Publishing Review

I was so excited when the opportunity came up to participate in a review for YWAM Publishing with the Schoolhouse Review Crew! For this review I chose Corrie Ten Boom: Keeper of the Angels' Den from the Christian Heroes: Then & Now series to read with my son in our homeschool. We also received the Unit Study Curriculum Guide.

Christian Heroes: Then & Now Book Series

Christian Heroes: Then & Now is a book series that shares exciting and inspirational stories of real people who have a heart for missions and have answered God's call to missions.

YWAM Publishing Review

Corrie ten Boom: Keeper of the Angels' Den is one of the 42 books in the Christian Heroes: Then and Now book series.

The book description given by YWAM Publishing:

Suddenly, Corrie's ordered life was lost in the insanity of war. With bravery and compassion, her family and countless other Dutch citizens risked everything to extend God's hand to those innocents marked for certain execution in a world gone mad.

Corrie ten Boom's life of determination, faith, and forgiveness in the face of unimaginable brutality and hardship is a stunning testimony of the sustaining power of God (1892-1983).

I have always admired the courage and faith of Corrie ten Boom. I'm so glad to be able to read about her life and learn from her Christian example with my son!

How We Used the Book and Unit Study Curriculum Guide

For the remainder of this review, I will be sharing about our experience with Corrie ten Boom: Keeper of the Angels' Den, one of the books available in the Christian Heroes: Then & Now book series; plus the Unit Study Curriculum Guide.

Christian Heroes Then & Now Series

We read a chapter a week in the book. There are comprehension questions provided for each chapter in the Unit Study Curriculum Guide which I use with my son after reading each chapter. I am pleasantly surprised when he can answer most of the questions! He really gets into the book as we read it together.

I also use the Scripture verses provided in the curriculum guide as copywork each week. Once we have finished reading the book, I plan to go to our local library and check out the movie, The Hiding Place, which is a movie suggestion in the curriculum guide based on Corrie ten Boom's life.

There is so much to choose from in the Unit Study Curriculum Guide! I love that and the fact that I'm not tied to doing the same activity every day after we read. It also helps to keep my son's attention and interest.

I'm really looking forward to reading more of the books included in Christian Heroes: Then & Now series with my son. I hope you'll check out this inspirational series about real life Christian heroes and everything else that is offered at YWAM Publishing!
