Book Review: God Is My Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom

“If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. But if you look at Christ, you’ll be at rest.”–Corrie ten Boom

Dutch watchmaker Corrie ten Boom, with her courageous, God-fearing family, sheltered Jews from the Nazis during World War II. This led to her arrest and suffering in prison and concentration camps–told in her bestselling book The Hiding Place (and feature-length film of the same name. Her dramatic life story and her more than 40 other books have prepared millions of readers to face their own futures with courage–relying on God’s love to forgive, overcome, heal, and restore.

Now, for admirers of Corrie ten Boom as well as a new generation of readers, this 40-day devotional based on Corrie’s writings will strengthen your faith, re-root your soul in Christ, and increase your experience of God’s peace. Receive the courage and comfort of the Holy Spirit, and remind yourself of what Corrie ten Boom knew and lived: God is your hiding place.

My Thoughts: I absolutely loved The Hiding Place, so I jumped at the chance to read more from Corrie ten Boom. God is My Hiding Place is a great introduction to her writings and the various lessons that she had learned. She’s so inspiring and dedicated to our Lord. The one thing that I found a bit odd was the version of the Bible the publisher chose to use with each devotion. I’m not a NKJV only type of person, but given the author’s era, I felt like the modern translation didn’t blend well with Corrie’s writings.
But the devotional was a blessing to read, and I think it would make a great gift to seasoned or new believers.

I received a copy from the publisher. I was not compensated for this review or required to give a favorable one.
