Product Description:

A family sympathetic to the Jews does what it can to help during Hitler's reign of terror. The famous testimony of the faith of Corrie Ten Boom and her sister as they endure the cruelty and hardships of living in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II.

Publisher Description:

“I pray that God forgive them…”

Corrie Ten Boom stood naked with her older sister Betsie, watching a concentration camp matron beating a prisoner. “Oh, the poor woman,” Corrie cried. “Yes. May God forgive her,” Betsie replied. And, once again, Corrie realized that it was for the souls of the brutal Nazi guards that her sister prayed.

Both woman had been sent to the camp for helping the Jews. Christ’s Spirit and words were their guide; it was His persecuted people they tried to save—at the risk of their own lives; it was His strength that sustained them through times of profound horror.

Here is a book aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it. A story of Christ’s message and the courage woman who listened and lived to pass it along—with joy and triumph!

Category Description for Progeny Press Study Guides & Books:

Among the many companies that offer a literature guide or study guide to use with a novel, Progeny Press does a beautiful job incorporating scripture into their literary analysis. I like how their guides begin with more basic comprehension questions and evolve into more challenging questions that encourage deeper thinking. Think of it as moving from who, what and where into the how and why’s. With Progeny Press, students are asked to draw comparisons between the literature they are reading and the Bible. Your student will use their own Bible in their preferred version.

New to literature study guides? They are an independent and flexible option for adding a literature component to your language arts. As your student reads a novel, the guide provides a framework, something like a workbook. The guide might suggest each learner read chapters 1 and 2, then answer some questions. Students answer directly in the guide. From a parent’s viewpoint, this is a time saver! You can set a schedule if you like, or just open their guide and ask them a question! Students love talking about what they are reading, whether they like it or not. Parent educators get a sense of the investment in the book each child has based on their remarks. In addition, parents could easily develop and add some deeper questions into an essay too.

Progeny Press has many titles to choose from. The age groups overlap in places because, well, that is not an exact science, is it? One student may read a book at age 10 and another at age 14. The age groups help a parent determine if the novel’s content is likely appropriate for a child’s age. Reading comprehension and literary analysis are an important component of any ELA year. A typical number of novels with guides is 4-6 a year, or 2-3 per semester. Some novels may take only a couple weeks to complete, while others take up to 8 weeks. Guides are currently available as softcover books, PDF format on CD-ROM, or PDF downloads available directly from the publisher at (progenypress.com). The guides are reproducible within one classroom or family.

Each guide includes:

  • a concise synopsis of the book
  • information about the book’s author
  • background information pertinent to the story
  • suggestions for activities relating to the subject matter
  • introduction of literary terms
  • vocabulary exercises for each section of reading
  • comprehension, analysis, and application questions for each section of reading with discussion of related Biblical themes
  • a complete answer key and suggestions for further reading

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.

The Hiding Place is a classic story that chronicles the faith of Corrie Ten Boom and her family in a very tragic time in our history. An excellent read for all high school students to deepen their faith in our loving God.

We are doing a Sunday School class on "Legends of the Faith" and Corrie ten Boom is certainly that, so as a class we will be going through this book and several others. It is always good to see how God uses obedient people to do God-sized task. It is also reassuring to see how in the darkest of times, God's light always shines through. (Spoiler Alert) It is only by faith in an All Mighty God that you can rejoice in being infested by fleas!

This extraordinary book is many things Fascinating because of the story of ordinary people working and sacrificing to save Jews from the Nazis Heart-wrenching because of the evil that flourished Gripping and beautiful because of the Ten Booms' faith and how they expressed it Expect to not only learn history but to be inspired and challenged to live your faith daily and deeply If you only buy one supplemental book for World War II history for your middle or high schooler this ought to be it
