Corrie Ten Boom: Keeper of the Angels' Den
This was a good book and it taught you about the horribly wicked blindedness of some people, and the forgiveness people can get from God. Mar 10, Ginny rated it it was amazing Shelves: Corrie is one of my heroes. This book is a good introduction to her life, and it's a good place to start before reading the Hiding Place. When my emotions got the best of me, it became difficult to read aloud at some points. Its message is powerful.
May 30, Elaine rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was so inspiring. I've read Corrie ten Boom's autobiography, which is also so incredibly moving and inspiring, so the story wasn't new to me. I read this to the kids for our WWII unit. The love and bravery of the ten Boom family as they hid Jews in Germany-occupied Holland during the war is so inspiring. This book tells about the lengths they went to in order to hide the Jews-building secret rooms, sneaking out at night, being in a ring for stealing ration cards It details the harrowing experiences of Corrie while incarcerated at various concentration camps and the atrocities committed at these camps.
However, it isn't all gloom and doom-the book ends with Corrie's release and subsequent years offering a home for healing for released prisoners to adjust back to regular life, and as a speaker and writer, spreading the message of God's love and forgiveness, even for those who committed such atrocities. Dec 27, Melanie rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom is one of my all-time favorite books. I was excited when I found this book as a way to introduce my children to her. I thought the authors did a great job in helping young children understand what an amazing woman she is!
Corrie and her family lived in Holland. They helped the Jews escape the Nazis and were eventually caught. She and her sister were sent to live in a concentration camp. It was a difficult time and there were tears in our eyes as we read certain The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom is one of my all-time favorite books. It was a difficult time and there were tears in our eyes as we read certain parts. One of the things that surprised me the most when I first read her story was her age--she was actually in her 50's when she was caught.
Her story is filled with miracles, faith and forgiveness, and is one that will inspire people of all ages! Mar 13, Denise rated it really liked it. I can't give it five stars because suffering in a concentration camp isn't amazing. Goodreads needs a different rating system. Anyway, I read this with my daughter as part of her curriculum. It will touch your heart. Jul 13, Alison rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed sharing some of her story with my kids using this book, and they loved it.
A wonderful introduction to the life of this hero of the faith. Aug 18, Mabi rated it really liked it. Such great people and human beings.

Feb 25, Malia Patopoff rated it it was amazing.
I really enjoyed this book because it showed the background and history of Corrie Ten Boom and how she survived the holocaust. It was really inspiring to watch Corrie and her sister Betsie walk through the horrible conditions of German camps. Through all of the torture Corrie still had an optimistic attitude making her an overall great character that was interesting to read about.

Oct 31, Shantelle rated it really liked it Shelves: I've only ever read one other book about Corrie Ten Boom. It was called Jesus is Victor , and is actually written by Corrie herself.
While it told amazing true stories about Corrie's life, I never really got the whole story. Keeper of the Angel's Den , gave that to me. I did not actually realize how Corrie and her sister Betsie came to be in the prisons and horrible concentration camps with the Jews until I read this book. Keeper of the Angel's Den takes us on a terrifying, yet amazing journey, starting from before Holland Corrie's homeland came to be involved in the war.
See a Problem?
My eyes were opened once again to how incredible awful the Holocaust was I think everyone should open up this story about Corrie Ten Boom. For one, to remember that horrific time, to guard against history repeating itself. Another important reason, is to see that God was still there! How incredibly sweet that Corrie could still see that, even after the horrors she had suffered. I read this book for school Well written, historical, interesting, thought-provoking. Feb 22, Matthias added it. It is a very sad book. The story takes place in Holland during the WW2.
Corrie Ten Boom is a clock maker who lives with her sisters and father. They hide Jewish people, and go to jail for it. She goes through a very rough time and sees many people die in 10 months.
The prisons were so depressing that she was very happy to see just one flower. She was brought to the concentration camps where the Germans started getting beaten, so they started killing their workers in the Gas chambers. By miracle It is a very sad book. By miracle one day she was freed though and brought back to Holland. She looked like a year old woman at 60 years old. Even though she had lots of injuries she still helped rebuild her hometown and helped many people after the war. I read this book just to refresh my memories on Corrie ten Boom's story, and it was perfect for that.
It was short, yet still informative, giving you a good overview of her life. But I found myself longing for more details sometimes. After reading 'The Hiding Place" and "Tramp for the Lord" hearing just the basics of her life is like having eaten meat all week long then being handed a bowl of watered down soup and saying its just as nourishing.
Yes, bad metaphor, but you get the point. Corrie ten I read this book just to refresh my memories on Corrie ten Boom's story, and it was perfect for that. Corrie ten Boom was an amazing lady and this book only scratches the surface of all the amazing things God did through her life. Jul 22, Irmgard Upmanis rated it it was amazing. I was given this book as a gift by a colleague who is a devout Christian. Thinking it was some sort of attempt to get me more involved in religion, I put it to one side.
Yesterday, I felt like sitting in the garden and reading, since it was a nice day, so I thought I would give this book a look. Dispatched from the UK in 3 business days When will my order arrive? Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide.
