I just noticed this on my bookshelf and remembered how enthralling I’d found Pamela Moore’s real-life story. Shyer than shy, she resisted surrendering to God’s will through her younger years. She feared having to do something truly terrifying, like serving as a missionary.
But after she relinquished her fears to God, she found herself considering some kind of service abroad. She asks, “How was it possible that a thought previously alien to all I desired could seem so natural now?” Over time God gave her opportunities she’d never dreamed of. First, a volunteer secretarial stint in Nairobi, Kenya. Later came her work for Bible smuggler Brother Andrew. After some time, she began to serve as personal assistant to Corrie ten Boom.
This graceful memoir reads like a first-person novel. It traces both Moore’s autobiography and her spiritual journey toward true liberty. As a bonus, it gives a charming inside look at the lives of those heroes of the faith, Brother Andrew and Corrie ten Boom.
Moore tells her extraordinary story in a warm, understated narrative style that avoids even the faintest whiff of bragging about her adventures. A true inspiration and delight, this Great Weekend Read gets my enthusiastic recommendation.
Thanks for reading,
