UPON THIS ROCK by Emile Cammaerts

Email this review


Professor Cammaerts, a Belgian living in England, has lost his son in the R.A.F. In this book, he tells briefly of the love and understanding worked out between father and son, of the boy's attempt to adjust to life and to find a career, and of his spiritual development during the days of military training. Much of the latter is revealed in quotations from letters, while the last half of the book reveals the father's spiritual development and how he found his way through the pain of loss. Although this is a father-son book, the role of the wife and mother illuminates the pages, as does also family love. A book for the whole family, and for any denomination.
