After her release from a concentration camp, Corrie ten Boom set out to become what she called a “tramp for the Lord,” traveling around the world at the direction of God and proclaiming his message everywhere. Throughout her life-long experiences, she learned a few lessons in God’s great classroom, which she here shares with listeners.

Corrie introduces us to her former prison guard, who asks her for forgiveness; a war-crippled lawyer with a soul as twisted and deformed as his limbs; a travel agent who learned that her ultimate destination could not be found on any map; a missionary mother whose unwanted babe ended up saving her life. All these touchingly human vignettes from her life and travels are intertwined with the unique teaching truth that sustained Corrie ten Boom throughout her days.

This moving story begins where Corrie’s beloved bestseller The Hiding Place ended. This modest woman, who was also one of the most remarkable evangelists of our time, shows that miracles really do happen. Her own life was living proof.

    " So so good!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacksoncompound | 2/14/2014

    " The history alone would be worth the read but the author has an honest, interesting, folksy charm that makes this book a winner. In point of fact, I now have to go back and reread "The Hiding Place" which I read decades ago. I think when she talks about "preaching" she may be using it in very general terms and is mainly referring to testifying, at least, that is the impression I got. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/14/2014

    " If you liked The Hiding Place then you'll like this book. This tells of all Corrie's adventures sharing the gospel after the war. She is an incredible woman and it's inspiring to read of her experiences. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/13/2014

    " Different from her first book, this book tells stories to learn by. I really enjoyed it, and learned a lot. I appreciated her faith through day-to-day struggles, and that we can overcome our struggles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Irene | 2/9/2014

    " So moving! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 McKaylla | 2/4/2014

    " This was a great sequel to The Hiding Place and went into great detail of a few expiriences previously mentioned. I liked the first one for its good plot and the lessons learned but this one I mostly loved the lessons. A very spiritual book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 2/3/2014

    " Love this book. Didn't know the continuing story after the Hiding Place ends. Follows her travels around the world, miracles, casting out of demons, and people she meets (Brother Andrew and Ruth B Graham). Also love to read of familiar places (Indonesia, the Grote Kerk in Haarlem) and the odd Dutch word (or "Ik ga slapen" written out). V encouraging read. Side note: a communist officer she runs into refers to Billy Graham as "that machine gun of God." "

    " Mother Teresa said "Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies." To me that captures the spirit and the message of Corrie ten Boom. I've recently been sent on a spiritual wandering of sorts. But in my tromping about I muddied the waters and my vision became blurred even more. And while I feel very far from where I started, and very comfortable where I am now, I adore this woman, and feel that regardless of our persuasions we could learn something from her sheer simplicity. She asks, "What else is there besides love and grace?" And after all my wanderings, what would I answer her? "Not much..." would be my reply. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 1/31/2014

    " Great book, at to your list! Biography of a great woman. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. | 1/30/2014

    " In The Great Divorce, Lewis describes a female 'Bright Spirit' as "one of the great ones" and quotes Milton to explain why "a thousand liveried saints attend her." That's how I think of Corrie ten Boom, the little old Dutch lady who survived a Nazi concentration camp, forgave her tormentors, and traveled the world for decades teaching people that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. This and The Hiding Place, her first novel, are both beautiful, moving, inspiring, and humbling books. You should read them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 1/28/2014

    " What happened to Corrie Ten Boom after she was released from the concentration camp? This book tells more of her life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/28/2014

    " This book was so inspiring as to how God works in the lives of good christian people. He is in the lives of all who truly seek him no matter what their particular faith and continues to guide them to all truth. I was so impressed with her determination to share her message of faith with the world until her dying day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary-Jane | 1/25/2014

    " This is the sequel to "The Hiding Place" and centres on Corrie's postwar experiences and her travels around the world to share the gospel. Her stories, teaching, humility, and honesty are touching. The book's title needs an update. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eremite | 1/23/2014

    " Inspiring devotional anecdotes from the post-war life of a Christian Holocaust survivor. Emphasis on forgiveness, anti-materialism, and absolute trust in divine guidance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 1/13/2014

    " Read this book way back when I was in school ~ loved it ~ I read it every couple of years. Very inspirational! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wes | 1/9/2014

    " Great book; I love these types of books. You get a story and wisdom of life all in one. Her trials and travels apply to people who have nothing at all in common. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carel | 1/7/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 12/19/2013

    " This is an amazing book by an amazing woman. Her life has been difficult and yet amazing all at once. And her faith and dependance on God are unmatched. I am amazed by her. She taught me much about faith and a deep love for God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 12/17/2013

    " This was a great read, but I didn't think it was quite as good as the Hiding Place. It is the story of Corrie Ten Boom after the war. It was very inspiring to me that she would dedicate her life to the Lord and would eventually forgive the people who imprisoned and tortured her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marisa | 12/16/2013

    " This sequel to The Hiding Place is great, but not quite as well written. It is a little choppy at times and a little redundant. Her story is still amazing, so that's what keeps it a great book. "
