Corrie ten Boom's astonishing memoir THE HIDING PLACE is one of the greatest Christian testimonies of our time, and inspiration to millions. The lessons to be learned from this amazing woman can be deepened by this 'prequel' in which she describes her formative years.
IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE is set in Corrie's family home - a narrow, three-storey watch shop in Haarlem, Holland - in which she was born in 1892. From here she shares the memories of family life and unforgettable characters who shaped her early years. It is a story of the innocence of childhood faith, the love of a close-knit family and the resourcefulness of a young woman living in a country on the brink of war.
Corrie ten Boom's 'prequel' to the classic The Hiding Place Concentrating upon her family and their life in Holland before the war, this inspiring and revealing book describes in moving detail living above the family watch shop in Harlem and her memories of the family together before their lives changed for ever with the advent of war and persecution. Corrie believed that this life helped prepare them for carrying out God's work later and gave her the strength to survive the war, brutal hardship and persecution and begin her worldwide ministry. This much loved book is being re-issued in B format with a contemporary cover.
This is perhaps the most revealing of all her books, as Corrie introduces us to her life before the dramatic events of the war. It focuses on her family home, and she shares her memories of family life and the characters who shaped her early years.
