"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

  • Amazing.

    By TNVolGirl
    This book will strengthen your faith and give you reason to marvel at God’s works during such a terrible time in our history. Corrie and Betsie were true Christians who lived God’s command to love others as yourself.

  • The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom

    By Molly Mormom
    My favorite book ever after the Holy Scriptures! It helps me to be a better Christian. I want to reread it many times over my life to remind me that faith and forgiveness and love are the only path to God, through the atonement and teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The entire ten Boom family inspires me! I love them all and look forward to talking with them one day when I go "home".
  • Best book I have ever read!

    By Jess G in Nevada
    It's not very often that the words of a book reach out and grabs your soul. You feel every emotion and every pain Corie feels, and are transported to war torn Holland. Read this book and then when you are transformed by it like I have been, but some and give them away as gifts.
  • Thought provoking

    I read this book decades ago as a 10th grader. It made such an impact on my life then and still does. I have read it many times since and have recommended it to many friends. If you are going through a dark time in your life, or if you have ever gone through a dark time, this book can help you see past the pain and see God's unconditional love. I hope you bless yourself and take the time it read this and for the lessons to sink into your heart and sooth your pain. There is no doubt that God loves you!

    I've read this 3 times, and now I'm purchasing a copy for my iPad. I was 22, a new Christian, and from a dysfunctional alcoholic home life. My first read I cried over the injustice and fear Germany brought to Europe . 10 years later I wept for the love and support of the ten Boom family. Family love & support I wish I'd had. The amazing Papa ten Boom who raised these faithful children. For this story is not just about Corrie, but her heroine sister Betsy, & her brother, and every member of the ten Boom family. My 3rd reading I'd seen Corrie on the 700 Club. ( can still be seen in the archives) Over the years Corrie's honest self evaluation and wisdom have guided my decisions. Many times when caregiving felt overwhelming, I recalled Corrie cleaning the bathroom for a houseful of strangers. Corrie's purse and what happened with it that fateful day, reminds me how little control we truly have. I believe if you read this book, God will meet you right where you need Him. Today, it may feel like you're reading another WWII story, but I promise you, you are not. The Hiding Place will leave you richer for years to come. God protect and bless all who read this story of Your protection and blessing. amen
