Believe in the love of Jesus and miracles in the midst of horror. Dec 20, 2008
Story is a little slow at first but once it gets going..... Wow! What the Nazi's did to people is beyond inhumane. The real important part of the story is the woman writing it and her sister. Their love and devotion to Jesus in the most hideous circumstances proves Jesus overcomes all. What a miracle!
An opinion on The Hiding Place Nov 8, 2008
I would recommend this book to everyone especially in todays' political climiate. This book is a definite keeper for the family library.
Bad Copy! Oct 9, 2008
Great book, but not a great copy. Countless errors include, dropped words, name errors, and misprinted words.
What about the Bibelforscher? Sep 9, 2008
While the story of the ten Boom family is valuable for its portrayal of courage and integrity, I was astonished that Corrie ten Boom makes no reference to others imprisoned in Ravenbruck for their faith. She, in fact, was considered a political prisoner because of the ration cards, and defiance of laws regarding the Jews. But in fact, there were hundreds of women in Ravensbruck, known as Bibelforscher, (which in German means "Bible students,") who had been there far longer. This fact was testified to by Genevieve deGaulle, neice of Charles deGaulle, who was also in Ravenbruck for French undergound activity. It is proper to recognize those few members of the churches who defied Hitler, but about ten thousand Bibelforscher were imprisoned throughout the war, while thousands more remained largely underground, though their numbers doubled during the war years. Hitler had banned the Bibelforscher in 1934 because of their forthright and vocally public opposition to the Nazi party, and by 1938 they composed about 15% of the concentration camp population. Perhaps the reason they are ignored is because they are today known as Jehovah's Witnesses.
Re-read every so often for fresh insight, Timeless Aug 27, 2008
Readers know from the outset Corrie Ten Boom survived to help write the book but it's such an intriguing journey to get there. The authors include numerous jewels along the way, stories that stick with the reader long after the book is back on the shelf: the train ticket held by her father until the perfect time, the test of faith by not lying about family hiding under the kitchen table, the fleas having a purpose, the heartbreak of the love of her life marrying someone else, rebuilding the radio while in prison, the astounding respect and love for her father and sister while incarcerated.
Each chapter utilizes powerful imagery to flesh out an application of Eternal Truth ready for internalizing.
The lessons may be applied to every day life since these were not merely `characters' but most obviously real people, with extreme trials to maneuver in life and in death. Ordinary becomes extraordinary, utilizing compelling subject matter with a page turning writing style exhibiting firm faith in the Lord. It's one of those classics that affords readers immediate application to their own circumstances since they can identify with her and her family on so many levels.
Finally a work like this inspires and uplifts. I found myself continually discovering the answer (Grace) on almost every page to such questions as "Why did God let this happen?" and "How did she do it?". The Hiding Place is a classic I enjoy re-reading every few years. I'm amazed at the fresh perspective I have each time. It's timeless.
One of my favorite poetic verses from Corrie Ten Boom, who quoted it often (it was by Grant Colfax Tullar), is the following:
"My life is but a weaving betwixt my God and me; I do not choose the colors He worketh steadily. Oft times He weaveth sorrow, and I in foolish pride Forget He sees the upper, and I the underside. Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly Will God unfold the pattern and explain the reason why. For the dark threads are as needful in the Weaver's skillful hand As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned."
