A remarkable account of the nature of human evil and a way in which incredible suffering can be transformed into an instrument of redemption. Originally a talk given in 1940 to a group of theological students, it contains the reflections of a woman who spent years in the Gulag during the hellish years of pre-World War II Russia, who was eventually released and escaped to England. Her witness to the possibility of redemptive human suffering in the lives of ordinary people carries the weight of one who, suffering, had looked torturers in the eyes and emerged transcendently whole.
