F W Boreham: An Appreciation

In response to the posting on my favorite Boreham lines, Mary Whitbeck wrote to me and said:

“I read the FWB Blog regularly & appreciate so much all you post on the subject and the pictures too.”

“Perhaps my introduction to Boreham books goes back to before your birth—judging by your pictures you have posted—how about late 1942 when I listened to my Canadian Grandma read "a chapter of Boreham" at her dining room table to the family? My collection started by their kindness to me—now up to 40 plus Mr. Crago's books. My friend Dr. Warren Wiersbe was a real help in reaching that.”

“Thank you so much for the BLOG and all you are doing to make the books/material available. I could say a lot about favorite chapters--concepts. Here's a chapter I think just super—‘The Angel and the Iron Gate’, in Faces in the Fire.”

Another FWB lover,

Mary Whitbeck

I wonder if any readers of this Boreham blog site go back earlier than Mary in terms of their acquaintance with F W Boreham and his books? If so, I’d love to hear your reflections or even if your acquaintance is not so long.
