St. Paul’s by-the-Sea, Ocean City – Our April Book is The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom which we will discuss on Monday, April 24 at 7pm via Zoom. It is an autobiographical memoir by Corrie Ten Boom, a devoutly religious woman who lived in the Holland city of Haarlem during the Nazi occupation. Compelled by her unshakeable Christian morality, she defied tyranny to rescue her Jewish neighbors who faced annihilation during the Holocaust. She was ultimately caught and sent to the notorious Ravensbruck death camp, where she witnessed scenes of unimaginable cruelty. In the camp, it was Corrie’s bedrock faith in the glory of God that sustained her. She discovered that love was a far more powerful force than hate—for God’s love was truly unconquerable. Anyone who enjoys reading is welcome to join our group. Contact Debbie Shuster or Jody Farley.
