Product description

Product Description

"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

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!

The most inspiring thing about this book was the depth of Love this woman and her family lived in every moment of every day. I shed tears at each loss she endured and was moved by her off the charts compassion for everyone around her. Corrie Ten Boom was someone we should all aspire to be like.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The ten Booms ran a watch repair shop in Holland. Their home was always open to whoever was hungry or in need. Therefore, it was a natural transition to take in Jews during the German occupation of Holland.
Corrie ten Boom, a spinster in her fifties, was a key contact whose home - indeed, within the wall of her very bedroom! was a safe haven for Jews. Devoutly Christian, she, along with her father and sister Betsie, simply believed in doing the right thing, as God's work. They, along with perhaps thousands of others in Holland, were captured and spent time in concentration camps.
Betsie, perhaps a saint? found good in everything: every blessing and every inconvenience. Her faith kept Corrie going throughout the worst of everything.
This book is incredibly well-written. It's only the second book on the Holocaust that I've read that's written in the point of view of a non-Jew (the first being Miep Gies's "Anne Frank Remembered"). While the author is very religious, and cites her faith as the spirit that kept her going, this book does not force religion down the reader's throat - rather, it simply tries to show that faith, and the act of doing good, can help us overcome the most horrible of circumstances.
This book belongs in the library of every reader interested in survivors of the most horrific events of modern time. I highly recommend it.

By Chris Gregory TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 16 2015
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Hiding Place is an enthralling autobiography of the World War II experiences of Corrie Ten Boom. Miss Ten Boom is a captivating writer and her story is truly inspirational. Her family was led by a meek, watch repairman. That patriarch was a devoted believer in the love of God and the scriptures, both old and new testaments. The book brought to my mind a tale of Harriet Tubman meets Anne Frank.

After the German invasion of Holland, the Ten Booms hid Jews in their home and watch repair shop. They also became active members of the Dutch Resistance and made numerous connections between Jewish and Christian homes, an act similar to that of the Underground Railroad of the U.S. Civil War era.

The activities of Corrie, her sister Betsie, and their father were eventually discovered, and they were imprisoned for their subversive actions. During captivity, they suffered great humiliation and pain, but they continued their mission to bring joy to those around them through the loving word of God. Throughout all the suffering, their belief remained strong, and Corrie's faith grew enormously. Although her sister and father died in prison, Corrie returned to their home and continued to help the less fortunate and preach the gospel. After the war, she toured Holland, Germany, all of Europe and finally the world, providing the people this message..."God's love and forgiveness is stronger than man's power ...stronger than the pain, suffering, and hardship of life!"

I'm certain that some readers would find the opening chapters tedious and uninteresting, but I believe that the foundation provided in those chapters is necessary to the full understanding of the ten Boom tale.
