I listened to this book on audible. The reader's accent was very distracting to me, but the material was very good. I would recommend reading it yourself. Had I done that I would likely have a better rating.
I really enjoyed this book. Corrie ten Boom has so much wisdom to share and I enjoyed reading of her experiences and learning from her adventures in serving God.

These chapters are very short, so it makes for a nice, short read and I really liked that about it. I could just sit and read a chapter in just a few minutes and glean so much wisdom!

Sandra Eggleston
This was a really good devotional. It lets you know how important it is to surrender to the father. It also talks about the importance of following the Bible. It is consistent in it's chapters. Most of the devotions stream along the same line. Not a lot of variety. But, still very inspirational.
As a concentration camp survivor, Corrie ten Boom, never gives up her passion for the Lord. She watched her family, and in particular, her sister die in the camps. Corrie still holds onto her beliefs long after many people would feel there is no God. A truly inspiring, thought provoking read.
Good length devotionals to give you something to think about throughout the day. Although this book is dated, talking about current events and Corrie's experience during World War II, the timeless truths she illuminates from scripture are applicable to Christians today.
4 1/2 stars out of 5.
This is a very uplifting book.

A nice short read from a Protestant point of view. One great liner in the book bears repeating. Someone told another that God was dead. That person responded, "That isn't true, I just talked to Him this morning!"

As always, Corrie's books are full of wisdom.
Beautiful meditation that are seeds for thought
"The best is yet to come." Amen!
