“I pray that God forgive them...”

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.

Both woman had been sent to the camp for helping the Jews. Christs Spirit and words were their guide; it was His persecuted people they tried to save—at the risk of their own lives; it was His strength that sustained them through times of profound horror.

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 Christs message and the courage woman who listened and lived to pass it along—with joy and triumph!

Deberah, October 22, 2010 (view all comments by Deberah)
The Hiding Place is my second favorite book in the world. I read thousands of pages a year. I go back to The Hiding Place at least once a year. Each page and each word, has been specifically placed in order to build on the idea of God's redemption even in in the world's most horrendous places. Corrie, is the fiesty one in her family and her sister is sickningly sugar sweet. The story is set amongst the Dutch in World War 2. Corrie's family is famous for hiding the jews during the war. I still envision Corrie's, Father...opening his amazing Bible. At such an old age, he declared, "I will hide the jews from Nazi's.. We will hide them in our home. I welcome God's people.." Corrie and her family fought for the fragrance of Jesus to cover the holocaust. Corrie had to deal with forgiveness at a level that very few of us experience. Her family suffered everything, for the safety and well being of those they felt called to serve. There is NO other book on earth written like The Hiding Place..I learn more about history, Jesus Theology all through the eyes of a simple dutch watch/clock maker.
