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!

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.

The Hiding Place is a magnificent 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, unassuming, 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 Netherlands), 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.

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.

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 is one of the most remarkable stories I've ever read. The courage, the strength, and the amount of faith in God this woman possessed is truly inspiring.

Corrie ten Boom and her family were prisoners of war during the German Occupation. Her father owned a watch shop and Corrie learned the intricacies of the watch repair from her father. When the occupation first began, Corrie became part of the underground in Holland and was hiding Jews in an upstairs room which was concealed behind a false wall. Eventually the Germans raided Corrie's home and she, along with her father, sister Betsie and other family members were carted off to destinations unknown at the time. Eventually they ended up at Scheveningen and then after awhile to Ravensbruck where her father and Betsie died.

Living in deplorable conditions with infestations of lice and fleas they also suffered horrendous over-crowding and smells that would upset even the strongest of stomachs. Through it all Corrie and Betsie never lost their faith in God and preached His teachings to the other woman prisoners as the truth and to provide hope in this crazy nightmare they were all suffering through.

Corrie was eventually released on a "clerical error" and later found out the week after her release, the women of her barracks were taken to their deaths in the gas chambers.

Upon Corrie's return to Holland she opened a place of "renewal" in Darmstadt in 1946 for people to come too. Another home in Bloemendaal served ex-prisoners and other war victims exclusively until 1950 when it began to receive people in need of care from the population at large.
