"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

A righteous Gentile, indeed! The ten Boom family courageously sheltered, helped provide ration cards, assisted Jews to escape the Nazi-occupied Netherlands.Three vignettes stick in my mind. 1)Corrie explaining to her Bible class of retarded children that she was like the glove she held. By itself it could do nothing, but with her hand in it (representing Christ in her life), it could do whatever was required. 2) When afraid she would not be able to face death, her father asking when he gave her (a child) the ticket to get on the train when she accompanied him to Amsterdam. She replied--just before we get on. He explained that dying grace is not given ahead of time either. 3) Learning to be thankful for the infestation of fleas!!I not only recommend the book, but also the movie of the same name. I see it at least once a year and reread the book to be reminded that "there is no pit so deep that His love is not deeper still."

This book lists Corrie Ten Boom as its author, but was published in 1971 and tells of Corrie's life before 1940 and then of the years she helped the Resistance in the Netherlands, till Aug 14, 1943, when she was arrested and spent time in prison and concentration camps till Jan 1, 1945. She was helped by the strong faith of her sister and herself, and thie book was published by a religious publsher in Grand Rapids, MIch. It has a lot of good pages, and I found it good reading, including the account of the years before the war.

A truly awe-inspiring story of a Dutch Christian who helped protect Jews during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. This book is especially notable because ten Boom is very rarely the hero in it. Yes, her bravery and compassion shine on nearly every page, but the constant focus on this story is on Christ. In this way, the book sets itself apart from many other like stories, but rather turns us, even in the darkest moments we can imagine, to the love and sovereignty of God, where we can rejoice even for fleas! (Which the characters ultimately have good reason to do!)I would wholeheartedly recommend to all Christians and to all people as a truly worthwhile and inspiring read.
