Marianne Hering: An Odyssey to the Hiding Place

(December 20, 2012)
Ben Avery
The new Adventures in Odyssey Imagination Station novel, Escape to the Hiding Place (Tyndale House), by Marianne Hering and Marshall Younger, takes readers back to World War II and the real-life heroine Corrie Ten Boom. “Ten Boom was a war hero just as much as any soldier,” Younger says. “Many of us know how she hid Jews from the Nazis in her house, but we wanted to look at the dramatic story from the viewpoint of those she helped.”

The lessons found in Corrie Ten Boom’s life, as well as this story, extend to modern readers. “We are challenged by Jesus to love others as much as we love ourselves,” Younger says. “I would like for children to be amazed by this story of heroes and desire to help others in the same way.”
