In a small, little town in Holland lived a simple watchmaker and his family who loved God above all else. In The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, she takes us on a magnificent journey of faith, love, and hope. Corrie was a simple person who took after her father in the business. Her mind clicked when it came to restoring watches, but when the Nazi regime started snatching the Jews, she became part of the underground for hiding Jews.
This book chronicles her journey from the home where her family lived (along with her father & sister) through her imprisonment in some of the worst concentration camps. Corrie shares of her strong faith, and her lack of faith at times. She begs God for safe passage of people and Bibles. She begs God for divine appointments. And God grants her these things at times.
As I listened to this book, my heart became overwhelmed by the faith needed to do the things that Corrie did. To hide Jews. Could I do such a thing today? I would like to say “yes”, but I don't know that for sure. I had started and stopped this book many times in my life, but this was the first time I had finished it – I guess my heart wasn't ready to hear the message.
This book shares the story of faith, hope and love during one of the most troublesome times in the history of our modern life. I encourage you to listen to this story.
