Book Recommendation: The Hiding Place

Last night, around 2:00 a.m., I finished reading The Hiding Place, by Corrie ten Boom. I am not in the habit of staying up until 2:00 a.m., but I simply could not put the book down. If you would like to enrich your life in deep, subtle ways that impact how you see the world around you, the oppression and injustice that imposes itself on your life and the lives of everyone, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is a true-life story of a Hollander family who took in and hid Jews during the Nazi occupation, were caught, and were sent to concentration camps. It is a story of Faith, forgiveness, and abundance – shrouded in the outward appearance of misery. Truly, one of the more remarkable books I have ever read. No synopsis can do it justice. Just go find it, read it, and take it to heart.
