Here is a review by Homeschool Teens: The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom.
This year, Sabrina has been teaching our homeschool group class about important Christian literature.
This has been a powerful class- really charging the teens to think about faith, adventure, and sacrifice. One of the homeschoolers’ favorite books so far has been The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom. Today 7 Sisters is releasing the helpful study guide for The Hiding Place.
Here is a review of The Hiding Place by homeschooled 10th graders, Seth Tillman and James Mears:
The Hiding Place
The Hiding Place is the story of Corrie ten Boom and her family’s struggle during World War II. The ten Booms were Christians that abided in Holland. The story covers Corrie’s childhood through her later life. Casper, Corrie’s father, owned a watch shop that Corrie would work at when she was older.
When she was in her fifties she and her family started hiding Jews from the Nazis. The Nazis eventually apprehended the ten Booms and held them in multiple concentration camps and finally in an extermination camp. Corrie’s father died.
Corrie and her sister, Betsy, trusted in God through it all. God used them to witness to the scared prisoners in the camps. Many people were saved through their Bible studies, counsel, and example. They gave thanks in all things, even for their flea-infested barracks (the fleas kept the Nazi guards away).
This book is an inspiring story of God’s triumph in heinous times. It tells that God’s grace is so profound that He forgives and even loves murderers. If God can love a Nazi, shouldn’t we love “that annoying guy at classes”?
