Recommends it for: those who like The Hiding Place, Christians
There is so much pure goodness in this woman.
Corrie Ten Boom was a concentration camp survivor and now (in this book) an itinerant preacher/motivational speaker. She was Dutch and a Christian. She and her family were imprisoned by the Nazis for harboring Jews. Ten Boom died at the age of 91 in 1983.
She went where the Lord sent her, found contacts that would allow her to speak to congregations, those in prison and other groups.
This book is set up as a daily devotional book with a beginning thou

I have loved Corrie for years, but had never read this book (thanks Preston!). She has been on my list for years of "people I want to meet in heaven". I am lifted by her powerful testimony and love for the Savior.

Another great read! I absolutely loved reading about Corrie and her life. She's an amazing lady, who writes from the heart. I loved reading about her journeys throughout the world. I loved how she tied John 15 and the vine into the stories of her missionary journeys, and I am admire that she did these journeys as a single woman. Corrie gives hopes and couraged to single women in the world. She did not let her singleness hinder her, and she relied on God to help her each and every day. This book ...more

This was a delightful book about how we as Christians need to stay connected with the Vine, which is the Lord Jesus Christ. We are no good if we are 'detached' from Him!

A few of the stories I had already read in a couple of her previous books, but that didn't bother me at all and I enjoyed every chapter. Corrie ten Boom is definitely one of my favorite authors!

This is totally a religious book--basically ten Boom's recounting of her works travels as a evangelical missionary. Her complete faith, humility, and courage was inspiring. I was interested in how my beliefs differ from hers, but loved how this book shows that true discipleship of Christ brings peace and joy regardless of your domination.
