This is the story of how Corrie ten Boom's 1971 classic, The Hiding Place, came into being, sold millions, and helped shape the faith of a generation. Some books have such an impact on people that they become more than a book - they influence a generation, and beyond. Guthrie tells the story of Corrie ten Boom's The Hiding Place. Ten Boom was a simple watchmaker in The Netherlands when World War II began, and soon, by faith and determination, she became a heroine of the resistance to Hitler and the Nazis. She survived the concentration camps and became one of the twentieth century's most important evangelists. Nearly half a century after it was first published, The Hiding Place still thrills and challenges readers with its portrait of Corrie ten Boom: an imperfect servant of Jesus, who was determined to defy evil, defend the weak, and endure hardship.
"The story of Corrie ten Boom is timeless, and I'm grateful that Stan Guthrie's new book, Victorious, is reawakening a fascination with this remarkable woman's witness. I was in my early 20s when I grew to know and love `Tante Corrie,' and her tender, yet no-nonsense way of walking with her beloved Jesus helped shape my own life story. Her last words, spoken to me in her thick Dutch accent? `Joni, one day we shall dance together in heaven!' And I'm still waiting for that dance. Turn the page and get to know this saint-of-the-age, as well as the history and details behind her amazing testimony. Her life may end up shaping your story, too!" -Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center "I grew up on The Hiding Place. Not only did our family read it; we told and retold each other the harrowing stories from the book's pages. In the process, Corrie ten Boom's powerful, real-life account of faith and forgiveness in the face of unspeakable evil shaped my imagination. I am far from alone. The book has impacted millions and now Guthrie, a skilled journalist and historian, is helping us understand why. With fascinating details about Corrie's life, and insight into post-war evangelicalism, Guthrie paints a vivid picture of the wider world into which the book was born. Victorious will intrigue people who have never read The Hiding Place. And it will enable those of us who have to encounter it again for the first time." -Drew Dyck, author of Your Future Self Will Thank You: Secrets to Self-Control from the Bible and Brain Science
