I had the privilege recently of previewing the film The Hiding Place, the story of Corrie ten Boom and her family during World War II. This Dutch family sheltered Jews in their home until they were seized, and all except Corrie died at the hands of the Nazis. Although a film cannot portray all the horrors of the concentration camp, what is presented is sufficient to give anyone a good idea of that bestial institution. The film witnesses solidly to the saving and keeping power of Jesus Christ. I urge everyone to see it.

My heart was touched a few weeks ago when one of my nephews sent $25 of his tithe to CHRISTIANITY TODAY. Soon after, one of my daughters and her husband sent $50. Then my son and his wife sent $350. My son wrote: “We believe in the magazine and its ministry.… It is a small gift. However, I imagine every little bit helps.” As a father and uncle I’m particularly pleased by these three gifts, while as an editor I’m grateful for these and all other gifts to this ministry. Every little bit does indeed help.
