Product Details

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.

From the Back Cover

"Every experience God gives us . . . is the perfect preparation for the future only He can see."--Corrie ten Boom

Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century. In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazis, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. Only Corrie among her family survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil.

Here is the riveting account of how Corrie and her family were able to save many of God's chosen people. For 35 years millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still. Now The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continues to declare that God's love will overcome, heal, and restore.

"A groundbreaking book that shines a clear light on one of the darkest moments of history."--Philip Yancey, author, The Jesus I Never Knew

"Ten Boom's classic is even more relevant to the present hour than at the time of its writing. We . . . need to be inspired afresh by the courage manifested by her family."--Jack W. Hayford, president, International Foursquare Church; chancellor, The King's College and Seminary

"The Hiding Place is a classic that begs revisiting. Corrie ten Boom lived the deeper life with God. Her gripping story of love in action will challenge and inspire you!"--Joyce Meyer, best-selling author and Bible teacher --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courage amidst a nightmare June 11 2013
By JeromeC
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The most hideous crime of the 20th Century had to be the Holocaust. It is a chronical of nightmares and perversion making a religion out of sadistic torture and a criminal philosophy.

Yet amidst this is the story of a few good people who said "No I will not let this go unopposed. I will stand by the values I have been taught and I will not compromise those values."

Such a person was Corrie ten Boom. This book is uplifting as well as being sad. It is sad that it was written and published. It is sad because the injustice is so obvious and yet people died because the injustice was so deeply intrenched in a society that allowed themselves to know no better.

Corrie ten Boom did know better and she says so. It gives her the right to talk about her Christianity and how she stood by its values without seeming to be a hollow voice. Her voice has depth and meaning. This is an old book well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book April 24 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read this book several times, and it is always uplifting. I am always amazed at how some people rise above our basest instinct to survive, and instead give love and light to all around them, in spite of being in a terrible situation themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book April 22 2013
By B. L. Trivers TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book back when it first came out, and loved it then. Now more mature, I can truly appreciate the great faith and sacrifice the ten Boom family made. It is a truly inspiring read. Wish schools dared to carry such books in their literature classes.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s definitely worth a second read - maybe even a third. Once I started on this book I couldn’t put it down till I had finished it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the powerful stories I've ever read April 25 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!).

By A Customer
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.
