The Hiding Place was first released in 1971. Elizabeth and John Sherrill have co-authored numerous bestsellers--classics such as The Hiding Place, The Cross and the Switchblade, and God's Smuggler--and have traveled the world researching and writing articles and books. Formerly senior editors and now roving editors for Guideposts magazine, John and Elizabeth co-founded Chosen Books, along with Leonard and Catherine Marshall LeSourd. John and Elizabeth have three grown children and live in Massachusetts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prisoner And Yet?
A Christian classic by a heroine of the faith. Feb 16, 1999
Raw and real, this direct translation from the original Dutch is the work which served as the foundation for the later book and subsequent movie "The Hiding Place." It is excellent primary source material for students of World War II and essential reading for serious students of the Holocaust. Confessing Christians and nonbelievers alike will be humbled as they view the horrors of Ravensbruck through Corrie's witness. Her testimony to the power of the love of Christ will touch even the most callous hearts.
