"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.


I will never forget the first time I read The Hiding Place. My heart was riveted by the fact that the love of God is the greatest power of them all. Today the truth remains the same, and I pray we are challenged and inspired again by Corrie ten Boom's powerful story of faith, triumph, and unconditional love.

Darlene Zschech, worship leader and songwriter

The Hiding Place is the heart-wrenching, powerfully inspiring story of the triumph of God's love and forgiveness in the heart of Nazi concentration camp survivor Corrie ten Boom. Beautifully penned by Elizabeth and John Sherrill, it will always sit on the top shelf of Christian classics.

Peter Marshall, author, The Light and the Glory and From Sea to Shining Sea

One of the most remarkable stories of one of the most remarkable women I've known. I recommend it most enthusiastically.

Chuck Colson, founder and chairman, Prison Fellowship

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, bestselling author and Bible teacher

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. Not only do we need to be inspired afresh by the courage manifest by her family, but we are at another watershed moment in the history of global anti-Semitism, and we need a strong reminder of God's timeless covenant with His ancient people and of our obligation as believers to stand with them as Corrie's family did in their generation.

Jack W. Hayford, president, International Foursquare Church; chancellor, The King's College and Seminary

In Corrie ten Boom, self was visibly crucified, and her sacrifices and genuine mercies demonstrated themselves to the convictions of men in every nation and tongue. Her disinterest in the spirit of this age convinced even the heathen. She truly manifested the spirit of Christianity.

David Wilkerson, founding pastor, Times Square Church; founder, Teen Challenge

Corrie ten Boom's spiritual beauty echoes throughout the story of The Hiding Place. Valor, determination, and integrity manifest themselves in her inspiring life and in her courageous actions. She is one of the few who can be described as a true hero.
