Product Description

From the Inside Flap

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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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, bestselling author and Bible teacher --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
The highly emotional story of Corrie ten Boom is told beautifully in her book, The Hiding Place. It is, in a word, unique. Her courage shows throughout the story, of how her trust in her sister and her belief that God loved her kept her sustained throughout the horrors of a concentration camp during the Second World War, sent there because she did what she thought was right. She risked everything to protect Jews from the Nazis, because Jesus was a Jew; and this is a quality I have never heard of in such a strong sense before. Every moment of the story held me in amazement, as I gradually realised the true meaning of being a prisoner and Corrie's survival a struggle all the way, in a battle of her emotions and her sister's beliefs of forgiveness to everyone who did wrong. The most striking thing for me, however, was no matter what happened, the sisters thanked God, and their prayers were always answered. A remarkable book, telling the story of a remarkable woman.

This book was recommended by the curate from my church. He and his wife had both read it and enjoyed it. I feel it was an interesting book on many levels. For me as a new Christian the faith elements were interesting, however so was the historical account of war time in Holland and the concentration camps. I think therefore that this book will appeal to Christians and non Christians alike.

One of my favourite books.

The idea that such gentle people would be so brave and Christian to offer hiding places to fleeing Jews in WW2. I really admired their courage and tenacity.

The very elderly father could have been spared prison if he promised not to hide anymore Jews. His response was that he would not turn away anyone who came to him for help. The poor man died in prison.

Corrie and her sister were sent to a concentration camp were sadly her sister due to a long standing health problem exacerbated by the harsh conditions within the camp, died. Corrie although broken hearted carried on telling the other prisoners about God and her beliefs and was eventually released.

A sad but beautifully written book.

If anyone had told me about this before I knew it was true I'd have struggled to believe it. But it IS true and one has heard and seen her speaking publicly of her experiences on tape and film, still available. If anyone needs inspiration or encouragement then read this, as it will stir you with the possibilities in your own life and maybe inspire you to be such an encouragement to others to live lives that are brilliant in their shining Jesus to others! Let's forgive as Corrie forgives which is just a shadow, as we know, of God's forgiveness of us! We're valuable to God as His ambassadors!

I knew the story of the remarkable Connie ten Boom, but I hadn't ever read the book. I wanted my children to learn about this remarkable Christian family and particularly Connie's inspiring story. Easy to read but due to its content I think better for mature young children, maybe 10 years plus. It helps them understand about the frightening times for regular people during WW2 and how courageous some were in the face of evil. Highly recommended reading for adults and older children as an addition to Anne Frank's diary and aan important read for Christians.

I love this book I have purchased it so many times for myself and many, many, times as gifts that were always equally appreciated. when I saw I could get it on my Kindle I just had to have it, as I have lost my paper back and I love to reread it; It always speaks to my heart and spirit; What ever is going on in my life I find it a help.

Biography of Corrie ten Boom and how she ended up in a concentration camp for hiding Jewish refugees in a hidden room in her family home. There's also a lot of family history and how her family felt it necessary to aid Jews because of their Christian faith.

If you have read Anne Frank's diary, you will love this book. An incredible account of one family's brave and selfless actions during WW II which resulted in the lives of many Jewish people being saved. Follow up the book with a visit to Harlaan, Holland and visit the Ten Boom museum for yourselves. A life changing experience.
