About the Author

Lydia Christensen Prince (1890–1975) was born in North Jutland, at the northern tip of Denmark, the youngest of four sisters in an affluent family. Her father was a successful builder who played an important role in developing their hometown of Bronderslev.


Lydia became a teacher in the state school system of Denmark and was a pioneer in the field of home economics. By 1925 she had obtained a post as director of home economics in a large new school in the town of Korsor. While seeking more meaning for her life, she started reading the Bible and received a vision of Jesus Christ that led to her salvation and baptism in the Holy Spirit. After months of earnest prayer and waiting upon God, she became convinced that God was asking her to give up her position as a teacher and go to Jerusalem in the tumultuous days before Israel became a nation.


In October 1928, at the age of thirty–eight, she set out for Jerusalem with about $200 in traveler's checks, no mission or church to support her, and no idea of what she was to do when she arrived. She soon established herself there, learned Arabic, and founded a children's home, becoming the cherished "mother" to dozens of Jewish and Arab orphans, mainly girls, eight of whom became her own children. She also began ministering the gospel to Arab women and later to the British soldiers who visited Jerusalem during their furloughs in World War II.


In the mid–1940s, she met and married Derek Prince, a philosophy and language scholar who was serving in the British army and was stationed in Jerusalem. They ministered there together until the birth of the State of Israel in 1948 when they moved to England with their eight girls.


The Princes served congregations, taught, and ministered while living in England, Africa (where they adopted their ninth daughter), Canada, and the United States. After settling in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, they began traveling internationally as Derek preached and taught the Bible in many nations of the world. Throughout these years, Lydia took care of their family, worked tirelessly and faithfully alongside Derek in their ministry, and even returned to her home economics roots when they were in Africa, teaching home economics to the African women students.


Following a stroke and a two–year illness, Lydia Prince died in October 1975. Her passing was deeply mourned by her family and thousands of people worldwide from a wide variety of backgrounds whose lives she had touched in her nearly fifty years of enthusiastic, energetic, and compassionate ministry.

Format: Paperback
Lydia Prince's bio describes a prosperous Scandinavian schoolteacher with a devoted fiance' and a bright future. But something is missing--a deep relationship with God. She feels led to sell everything, leave her fiance' and move to Jerusalem in the '30s, with only one contact there. God leads her step by step through a turbulent period in history to start an orphanage.

The story ends with a list compiled by the late author's late husband, teacher and writer Derek Prince, of Bible prophecies being fulfilled in Israel in our time, and how they will affect the world.

The last place I saw _Appointment in Jerusalem_ for sale was in a gift shop--in Jerusalem.

I wish a publisher would pick it up and re-print it. It's a classic and a keeper! I have lent this exciting biography out many times since I bought it in the '70s. It's one of the most inspiring and exciting stories I've ever read, and it's true. It's my second favorite book after the novel by Agnes Sanford, _Lost Shepherd_.

This book is that rare page turner which you cannot put down. A school teacher, Lydia, at the top of her profession leaves her native Denmark and travels to Jerusalem in the late 1920's --the beginning of a huge conflict between the Jews and the Arabs that is still going on today. She has traveled to Jerusalem because she has had a dream that she belongs there. And she gives up her home and her job to follow that dream. She arrives in Jerusalem pretty much penniless, but she relies totally on God for her needs, and He comes through. Just when she has spent her last coin for food, a money order arrives from Denmark to help her through another tough period. She has been given a sick, 18-month old child to nurse back to health, and she succeeds brilliantly at this job even though she must rescue the child and travel through a war zone with the child on her back. It's an excellent book because you feel inspired by Lydia's courage and ingenuity.

A friend recommended this book to me about 12 years ago. I have read it at least once a year since then. I can't imagine why it's out of print now. (I hope you can find a copy to read!)
It's a true story about a teacher who lived in Denmark in the 1920s. She had everything--intelligence, independence, good looks, a successful career, a comfortable home, a male friend, etc. However, she kept thinking that there must be more to life. The book is about her search. It tells step by step how her thinking began to change, how she "found God," and how she decided to give up her excellent salary to move to Jerusalem (a place she had no prior knowledge of) and depend on God to take care of her. She didn't even know what she would do in Jerusalem; she just knew she had to go there. The story is fascinating. Every time I read it, I have trouble putting it down.

A very impressive book. It made a big difference in my life.
This book tought me that:
- God is very near
- prayer enables us to tell God our worries and questions
- prayer should also be used to let God speak to us
- God wants to communicate with us
- we need to LISTEN to what God has to say to us
- we need to obey!! Also it seems hard to do.
Regards, Anton

Format: Hardcover
I love this book. The book had been around in my house for years and probably belonged to my late sister. I just bypassed it until the day I picked it up to gloss over and couldn't put it down until I had finished reading it. It is a powerful testimony of how God can interact face to face and in detail with a human even in these present times.
It re-iterates that God sees the heart and all you have to do is seek him, seek to know the true God and he will reveal himself to you. This is a book I read every year and I am sorry to say, never lend out because I just cannot afford to lose it. I think the Derek Prince ministry has decided to reprint it though.
This book makes one feel so close to God. It's an effect of both the events in the book as well as the simplicity with which it was written. It is a definite must-have for every Christian .............

I was first introduced to this book a few years ago by my grandfather. It had been read by many members of the family and finally passed down to me. I have been searching for a copy of this amazing book in English (mine is in Russian, so it takes more effort to read through!) and I finally found it! I have read this book 5 or 6 times and I am always inspired and amazed at Lydia's faith in God, but even more so- by God's faith in people! The simple way that the book is written (and it comes across in any language, I think!) is easy to read and hard to put down. One of the greatest books of all time, and should be a classic!

"Appointment in Jerusalem" was the second christian book I've read. The first one was "The Cross and the Switch blade" by David Wilkerson and I thought I would never find a book like that... ever... until I read "Appointment in Jerusalem" ! This book changed my spiritual life and took it to a different level. I swallowed it in 2 days... couldn't stop reading... I definitely recommanded it ! It is exceptionnal !!
