"Courage Born of Faith" is a radically comprehensive story of a Dutch family which survived the NAZI yoke during the occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. Hiding and feeding Jews was the right thing to do, but HARD, since survival was never guaranteed for the one offering aid or the Jew. The author, Edward Boersma, did a compelling job of telling this compelling story.
