After reading this book, it hit very deeply for me on a certain level, that might not be familiar for most. When I was 19 I was convicted of my first crime and was sentenced to six years in prison. I don’t remember doing most of my crime, but I do remember it happening and being blameless to the fact that I was the one who did do it. What hit me most about this book, is what they felt and were subjected to during processing and quarantine. Obviously the conditions aren’t as bad now as they were then, but I remember having to be stripped and naked in front of hundreds. I remember being told I was a number and not a name. I remember having my food thrown away for looking the wrong way in line. I remember countless times having everything I owned being torn through and then discarded because the Correctional Officer wasn’t happy that day. I know that people will say that our situations aren’t the same. I asked for my punishment by breaking the law. I deserved to be treated like that for my crimes (they were robberies without a weapon while I was on cocaine at 19). I needed to be locked up and so on and so on. But the thing I can say the most from this book, is that everytime she talked about the helplessness and selfishness that comes along with imprisonment, it hit me so hard. When she talked about love and compassion for others, being the only true form of currency you have in prison, those words rang so true to me. I’m writing this to let anyone who has ever been incarcerated know that this book should be read. It puts into perspective what you are truly worth and what you should give to others, even your enemies. I hated authority for so long, but realized that, love is the only way to win. So I would recommend this book to everyone who needs perspective, especially those who have been incarcerated before. Thank you Corrie for your endless love! Give Betsie a hug for me.
I was absolutely absorbed by this book. I looked forward to every time I picked it up to read. I must start by saying that I am Jewish and absolutely do NOT share the religious views of Corrie Ten Boom. But, this story is so engrossing and moving that my religious views were irrelevant. This is the remarkable story of a remarkable family that literally laid their lives out to save Jews in Holland during WWII. These are people I wish I could hug. Don’t be put off by the religious views expressed. Those views caused heroic people to show mercy and empathy in the most brutal period in recent history. The views were not preachy. I only wish that I could do something good for any person that would give respect for the wonderful people in this story.
“The Hiding Place” by Corrie ten Boom is probably the best book I have ever read. From the very first chapter, I couldn’t put it down, and the first half of the book wasn’t even into the main storyline but an introduction of Corrie’s family, home, and growing up years in a watchmaker’s shop in Haarlem, Holland. Having been taught deep faith in God as a child, Corrie learned that these experiences were preparing her for a future she never would have dreamed of or expected. When Corrie was 50 years old, Germany invaded Holland and the Nazi hunt for Jews during WWII began. As a Christian family, Corrie and her elderly father and sister Betsie naturally opened their home to these hiding Jews. Still though, this isn’t the main story but only the beginning of it. For their labor of love, Corrie and Betsie found themselves together in the heart of a German concentration camp. Under conditions of unimaginable cruelty, horror, mistreatment, and filth, the sisters set out to shine God’s love in a place so black love had never before penetrated. This book was gripping – stirring – challenging – a wake up call. It is, in Corrie’s own words, not a story of the past but of the future. The storm clouds that were on the horizon of Corrie’s youth are on our horizon today. In a rapidly darkening world, the beauty of God’s word will always shine brighter, truer, and more beautiful, as Corrie and her sister discovered. With their smuggled Bible which God miraculously preserved through them past unbelievably scrutinizing checkpoints and inspections time after time, they proved that, as Corrie said herself, “love is stronger than the walls that shut it in.” Another favorite quote of mine is when Betsie says, “There are in no if’s in God’s world. And no safer places than other places. The only place of safety is in the center of His will.” THAT is our hiding place! This book shows that love will preserve, truth will prevail, no matter how dark this world ever gets. “There is no pit so deep that He is not deeper still.”
I had this book sent to a young man who is facing nine years in prison. The feedback he gave me is that the book helped put his problems into perspective, as he looked at the life of someone who truly suffered, through no fault of her own. He also “owned” his crime and is working on becoming a better person – he told me that now he asks himself “what would Corrie do?” when he is facing a dilemma that seems to have no clear answer. He asked me for permission to pass the book on to other inmates.
I have read this book probably 6 times over the course of my life. You think I’d be tired of it by now. Not only do I love reading it and getting something new from it each time, I make sure I have a copy on hand to give out to others. Yes, it is that good. It is a true story of a tragic time in the history of mankind. It details the love, warmth and courage of a family of three; an elderly father and his two spinster daughters who risk everything to save their Jewish neighbors and strangers alike from the Nazi death camps. Read this book! You will not regret it!
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.
It’s not the hardships that we face that matters as much as what we see and learn through it.What an amazing family which had God’s perspective on life. I challenged to ask for the grace and ability to have such great love and to see through Christ’s perspective as the Ten Boom family did. Thank for Lord for helping them to endure to the end full of your love joy and peace. Victory belongs to Jesus.
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.
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.
