Book Review: Out of the Far Corners

December 28, 2011
Cover of Out of the Far Corners

A gripping tale of God's grace poured out upon a youngster with no economic, political or social sway.

My friend Peter Iliyn has written a fascinating book, Out of the Far Corners. It’s a tribute to Peter’s father who, as a boy, was forced to leave his homeland in Russia during Stalin’s reign of terror, only to face starvation and cruelty in northwest China, and then to endure mind-numbing hardships one day at a time, one prays to God that we might never need the grace of God as much as young Vanya did. To hear these stories now is to listen to Peter’s boyhood recollections of his father’s bedtime stories, told in the warmth and safety of San Francisco, stories of deliverance, faith and forgiveness. I recommend “Out of the Far Corners” to all who are desperate for peace on earth and good will towards all people.
