Corrie Ten Boom was the author of a book after WWII, called The Hiding Place.
In the Second World War, Corrie and her sister Betsie were sent to a Notorious Concentration Camp where they endured terrible conditions. Amidst sickness, sorrow and death Corrie and her sister clung to the hope which was contained in the Bible. God’s Word gave them and others, great comfort and strength as they trusted God’s promises in their darkest hours.
Corrie wrote, “In darkness God’s truth shines most clear” and she also stated, If God sends us on stony paths, He provides strong shoes… Corrie also wrote, “There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still…
When Corrie Titled her book, “The Hiding Place” the title referred to the place in their home where her family hid people whom were escaping from the Nazis.
The title also referred to Psalm 119 where the Psalmist wrote about God stating: Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
In times of darkness and despair, real hope can still be found in God’s Word, the Bible.
