“Tell people what we have learned here. We must tell them that there is no pit so deep that He is not deeper still. They will listen to us, Corrie, because we have been here.”
Out of the evil called the Holocaust arose a witness, a voice that even the Nazis could not silence, a voice that testified to the power of God to overcome every wickedness and sorrow.
Corrie ten Boom is that witness and her powerful story recounts the courage of one Christian family of Dutch watchmakers who determined to save Jews and resistance workers from the Gestapo forces that had overrun the Netherlands. As the pressure against the Jews grew, the risks increased and the ten Booms accelerated their efforts. The family transformed their quiet home into an underground station in the network of the Dutch Resistance, creating a safe room that would shelter and feed scores of fugitives. For this, all the ten Booms were arrested, from Corrie’s aging father to her young nephew. Corrie and her sister Betsie were ultimately deported to the Nazi death camp Ravensbrück.
Corrie survived, though her family did not. Following the war she began to tell her story of God’s faithfulness and his mercy, even in the darkest and deepest pit. The same faith that compelled the ten Boom family to stand firm in the face of evil would continue to shape Corrie’s life as she bore witness to the great power of God’s love to forgive, to heal, and to restore.
“A groundbreaking book that shines a clear light on one of the darkest moments of history.”
