TWR and Zondervan Publishing Release Compelling Book I Stand At the Door and Knock
CARY, NC, August 8, 2008–International Christian broadcaster TWR announces the release of a book containing never-before-published devotions by Corrie ten Boom, noted Dutch speaker and best-selling author of renowned classic The Hiding Place.
The new book, I Stand at the Door and Knock, debuted on July 31 and has been distributed to booksellers across the United States. Published by Zondervan Publishing House in Grand Rapids, Mich., it comprises the third and likely final installment of Corrie’s extensive writings culled from unused audio segments containing her spiritual meditations.
Through the rubble of post-World War II Europe, Corrie accomplished what brute force never could: conquering hearts across the world with the healing words of God’s hope and love. Gleaned from her life experiences, including incarceration at a Nazi concentration camp, I Stand at the Door and Knock contains the simple yet powerful recollections of a life lived with integrity before God.
TWR is pleased to present this book that includes 40 “lost” radio devotions uncovered by a TWR missionary in the Netherlands office audio archive. All the veteran saint’s devotions were originally broadcast over TWR from 1966 to the early 1970s in her native Dutch tongue.
TWR and Zondervan have previously published two other books of Corrie’s unpublished radio scripts: Reflections of God’s Glory and Messages of God’s Abundance.
“While much history has been written in the last 40 years, Corrie’s spiritual insights and vivid illustrations remain timelessly refreshing and relevant,” says TWR’s Tom Watkins, U.S. director of Strategic Initiatives & Partnerships. “It has been a great blessing and privilege to see this project come to fruition and to share these inspiring writings from a stalwart of the Christian faith.”
