Corrie ten Boom's amazing personal courage and her ability to share the reality of Jesus Christ have made her writings continually popular, and the Corrie ten Boom Library has become a source of inspiration for thousands of readers. Now with two new additions to the library, readers will continue to enjoy this beloved author's words of wisdom.
After her release from a World War II concentration camp, Corrie traveled around the world, proclaiming the gospel. Amazing Love tells how she encountered God's love in some of the most unlikely places during her extensive travels. The 27 short vignettes tell of Corries post-war experiences in various parts of the world, revealing the maturity of her Christian service. This book was first published by Christian Literature Crusade in 1953 and by Revell in 1964.

Love to read, and Audible has made the two-hour daily commute enjoyable!
I selected this book thinking I would learn about Corrie ten Boom's time in a Nazi concentration camp and forgiveness. It was more about the years after the camp when she started traveling to spread the gospel. This book was her second book, written in 1953 when she was in her late 50s. "The Hiding Place" was written 18 years after that. Amazing woman, but not what I was looking for.
As always, Nadia May is wonderful. I must admit she was part of the reason why I decided to give this book, which is a very different read for me a try.
Corrie ten Boom, for those who don't know, is a Holocaust survivor and a highly respected Christian speaker. This book details various occasions in her ministry when someone offered or needed forgiveness and found peace.
Nadia May did a beautiful job of the narration. She has a Dutch accent to match Corrie's and I found her tone to be very calming.
Corrie ten Boom writes in such an humble manner with such simplicity that this book would be easy to understand for a beginning Christian. It was a great source of encouragement for me and a reminder that I should always seek to surrender more of myself to God. It would not be reaching to say that I will remember some of these stories for the rest of my life.
My favorite part of the book was when she compared the Bible to chocolate. You'll have to read it to really understand the comparison, and you won't regret that you did.
Just finished listening to the book Amazing Love by Corrie ten Boom. After her release from the Concentration camp, Corrie traveled around the world, proclaiming the Gospel. This book talks of 27 encounters she had after the war. Her faith in God puts us to shame. Although I do not agree with all the book (not KJV) it did have a lot of meat. Some of the topics was forgiveness, spiritual pride, the love of God; faith in God; etc. It was very encouraging and worth the listen (2hours & 31 min.) .
I think that anyone who is dealing with loss, or upset would benefit from this book. I have told many friends to purchase it and give it to family & friends.
It was such a fast listen, it's hard for me make a decision about what was best.
Miss May's voice was strong, yet soft and kind. I enjoyed listening to her.
correy ten boon books are such joy to read and listen to. this book gives me plenty to meditate on. I am so thankful God has used her and we can all learn of him through her.
This was a very enjoyable book filled with Corrie's simple yet profound lessons. God had given her a platform because of all she had suffered and she used what He entrusted to her for His glory.
A great book for all people, not only Christians, but all humans who are redy to listen with open heart to true stories of God's grace, love and power. Hulda Rún Mortensen, Reykjavík Iceland
Not really as some of the story was a little boring
The way Corrie never gave up and always saw the positive in everything
The way she had courage
Yes and no as some bits were boring
