Product Description

From the Publisher

Corrie Ten Boom stood naked with her older sister Betsie, watching a concentration camp matron beating a prisoner."Oh, the poor woman," Corrie cried."Yes. May God forgive her," Betsie replied. And, once again, Corrie realized that it was for the souls of the brutal Nazi guards that her sister prayed.

Here is a book aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it. A story of Christ's message and the courageous woman who listened and lived to pass it along -- with joy and triumph! --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

This is a powerful story of Corrie ten Boom's family. Staying focused on God and walk in the faith in God in the middle, and in the face of evil, Corrie and her family showed me that God could use us even in a dreadful situation unimaginable as long as we continue and determined to live by His standard. I was so inspired by this book, now I recommend everybody who is Christian and who are searching for faith to read it(In fact, I think anybody can get inspired by this book!).

This book was excellent, I thought, in giving a great insight to those that tried to help out their neighbors in escaping from the Germans. This family continued even thought there was great risk. They paid with their lives and still held strong that they were doing the right thing. It gave a different feel for what happened to all people involved in the Holocaust. It helped me to understand a different side to all the hatred and gore that happened then.

THE POWER OF DARKNESS-Luke 22:52-53
Christ's words at His arrest in the garden of Gethsemane: "Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves? When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: BUT THIS IS YOUR HOUR, AND THE POWER OF DARKNESS."
Corrie Ten Boom has a tree planted in her name along the avenue of the Righteous of the Nations at Yad Vashem, Israel's Shoah Memorial. The avenue and trees are all dedicated to non-jews who saved jewish lives during the Nazi regime.
Holland was invaded by Hitler's troops on May 10, 1940. The Ten Boom family lived in Haarlem and spent several years hiding jews, working to get them safely out of Hitler's occupied territory. Her sister Betsie urged her sister before dying at Ravensbruke "...must tell people what we have learned here...They will listen to us because we have been here."
Let's hope that those who still refuse to listen, will reconsider the testimonies of these silent trees.

I just finished reading "The Hiding Place" and was (and still am!) deeply inspired by Corrie's unfaltering faith in God and the Bible which, without question, helped her survive the horrific ordeal. The overall mood of the book is upbeat considering the emotional episodes throughout. I don't believe the lightness of the way in which Corrie tells her story undermines the seriousness of it but rather, the mood reflects Corrie's contagious personality as a good-doer, always finding the good in everything, even her enemies which Betsie taught her to do.
Corrie's book taught me many valuable lessons about the human spirit and how much a person can endure in order to survive but the lesson that I struggle with the most is to love and forgive your enemies. The most powerful passage in the book is when the former S.S. man from Ravensbruck thrusts his hand out towards Corrie and she thinks to herself, "And I, who had preached so often to the people of Bloemendaal the need to forgive, kept my hand at my side." She later asks, "Jesus, I cannot forgive him. Give me Your forgiveness." Corrie eventually shakes hands with the man but makes sure the reader knows that it is the hardest lesson of all to accept, even for her. This passage doesn't diminish the importance of the message which is to learn from Corrie's mistakes as well as her achievements. I highly recommend this book to anyone, young and old, especially the young.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book made me wish for a better world history. This suspenseful tale takes place during the Holocaust from 1937-1983 and displays the true cruelty of our fellow human race. NSBers, (people a part of the National Socialist Bond,) show hatred and maliciousness towards the defenseless Jews, while the treacherous Hitler Empire expands. There is not one single strand of relief in sight; let alone hope. All simple human necessities were cut off for this nasty war, including: coffee, tea, and leather. So, in an obvious inference, this wasn't exactly the best time to live.
The book made me hope that Germany learned its lesson. ---Never be a part of something that will hurt others, no matter what the consequences are. Many of the NSBers were shunned in the postwar era. Their community would not forgive them, nor would any other remaining Jews. Not only could they not find jobs, but they were turned out of homes and hooted at in the streets. So, even with the paid necessities and better working conditions, the gullible Dutchmen eventually got what they deserved.
The book made me realize how lucky I am to be born in such a comparably peaceful time. The world was a pretty frightening place back then. If I were to be granted birth on a gloomy day in the Holocaust, my sacred life would have to be spent in constant hiding, furtively foraging for "food" and repeatedly praying for an end to the war. All external pleasure outside the walls would be shrouded in an utmost dreaded shadow. ---Flowers would be crushed, homes would be raided, and the beauteous, blue sky would adapt to a dullish grey color. Life as we used to know it would be stripped from our remembrance...
The book made me see how courteous and understanding people can be.
