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!"

"The best is yet to come." Amen!
Lydia Howe
Corrie ten Boom is one of my favorite authors. Her style is exceedingly simplistic and so easy to understand. She uses every-day analogies that help to cement her stories and bring them to mind during normal activities.

Corrie ten Boom lived in the Netherlands during WW2 and she, along with her family, were very involved with working with the underground networks and hiding a handful of Jews, and supplying transportation, ration cards, and homes for countless others. Although this book doesn't t

Solid Encouragement

Collection of brief encouraging messages originally broadcast on radio, with Macy's stories from the Holocaust. They are made positive and powerful by the fact that the author lived what she taught. If you want encouragement, read it!

In the beginning of this book I found some advice for the current situation at work, but the advice has me conflicted. I think I am doing as the advice suggests while still maintaining a communicative effort to improve our work environment and atmosphere while increasing efficiency and productivity, but am I? Could I be seeking to step into a place of judgement against those who are stalling the productivity and darken the workplace atmosphere?
I'm uncertain about my own motives, and want to use

Book was a gift!

What a lovely devotional book! I really enjoyed it a lot! No earth-shattering revelations, but plenty of good reminders. And some beautiful thoughts I'd never considered before, like "there must be light in the valley of the shadow of death in order for there to be a shadow, and Jesus is that light." What a great thought!

In all, an excellent daily devotional. They are transcribed radio broadcasts from Germany--never shared in print until this book. Each chapter is just 3-4 pages

I read this as a nightly devotion over the last few months. It is simply Corrie ten Boom's radio addresses written down. Every one is inspiring, simple and full of God's love. I want to read everything she's written--she's one of my heroes!

Blessed by God

For such as this did the Lord spare Corrie Ten Boom's life. She has been reaching the lost & inspiring the saved for most of her life.

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.
Translated chapters were okay

Although I deeply respect Corrie for her enduring faith and her ability to forgive given her story, this book lacked flow. The translated text seemed disjointed at times.

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!

I always enjoy anything I read from Corrie Ten Boom. She really speaks to my heart.

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.
