    1. “Amazing Love,” by Corrie Ten Boom. This dear sweet lady wrote about her experiences and travels after living in the horrors of the concentration camps during World War II. She shares different stories of different people as well as cultures and the beautiful thread of God’s amazing love that was able to touch each person.I do want to say just a few words about the narrarator, Nadia May. She has the warmest voice! I melted right into the book as Ms. May began to speak. Her accent is lovely [...]


    2. Corrie Ten Boom always has such keen insights. I loved these quotes, "At Ravensbruck I had had good training in casting all my care and burden upon Him; for He careth for you" (I Peter 5:7). My suitcase of cares was full to the brim, and when I emptied it before the Lord I prayed, "Lord, here they are; help me now to leave them with Thee and continue my way unburdened." What a great image of useless carrying around heavy burdens.And my favorite, "Jesus does not patch things up. He renews."It is [...]


    3. I love Corrie ten Boom and her story. This was a short read and it was interesting to learn more about her life and ministry after WWII. What a strong woman!


    4. This book is 27 different chapters. Each chapter is basically unrelated to the others. And each chapter has a little story about her life and a sort of application point attached.In brief, it was very enjoyable to read. Ten Boom's faith simply was beautiful. And being able to read about it in the stories she told, and then in the way she told them, is convicting and comforting. She is humble, yet firm in her faith. She is child-like and yet robust on her view of the cross. And much more could be [...]


    5. Delightful and edifying. Ten Boom writes about her travels and evangelistic teaching, sharing stories of conversion and counsel for believers. It's really a wonderful little book.The only sections where I had 'mixed' feelings were her discussion of God directly telling her things (Hi, my name is Brandon, I'm a cessationist), and her discussion of spiritual warfare, spiritism, and demon possession. I certainly do believe in spiritual forces beyond what we can see, and am open to the idea that dem [...]


    6. This is a small book, a collection of 27 true encounters Corrie Ten Boom had with God and people to whom she was ministering as she traveled the world. I enjoyed it very much. First published in 1953 less than a decade after she was released from a concentration camp. Of particular interest is that she met with and impacted Germans who were literally on the other side of the fence after the war ended, as they were in desperate living conditions then and suffered from mistreatment. Ten Boom recog [...]




    7. As youth, Corrie ten Boom and her sister suffered imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp. Treated harshly, her sister escaped the concentration camp by way of the grave. Corrie, however, was released and eventually recovered from the traumatic experience. In Amazing Love, Corrie recounts twenty-seven of her life experiences. Rather than remain bruised and scarred, Corrie gave her pain to God. In return, she received personal healing and opportunities to share the gift of healing with others. [...]


    8. Amazing Love, by Corrie ten Boom, is an encouraging book recounting her ministry for God and includes her experiences, struggles, and how God showed love to her. This book impacted my life in different ways. It challenged me to go through hard times and be others focused, even if it will hurt or doesn’t appeal to my selfish wants. Corrie ten Boom always relied on God to provide for her no matter the circumstances and this challenged me to trust in God with my future plans and finances. Corrie [...]


    9. Abby WheelerMrs. LarioEnglish 110/03/16Book ReviewAmazing LoveCorrie Ten Boom “Amazing Love” by Corrie Ten Boom is a nonfiction book about the author and her life after she was released from a concentration camp. She is a Dutch woman who was put into this concentration camp because she was hiding Jews in her house. Corrie Ten Boom goes around to different places and she teaches others about the lord and how he has impacted her life. While she goes on to many places she try’s to get people [...]


    10. Corrie ten Boom was an amazing woman of courage who survived concentration camps during World War I, saw her beloved sister die, and then spent her later years bringing the good news of Jesus to people all around the world, including some of her former captors.This book is a series of anecdotes which Corrie ten Boom described after talks she had given, or people she had met, when the discussion turned to the love of God. Unfortunately, although the stories are positive, and the experiences must [...]


    11. I just finished listening to Amazing Love by Corrie ten Boom. This is the first audio book that I am reviewing for ChristianAudio. It is a very good book. Corrie ten Boom's language is not lofty or intellectual. She explains some basic concepts of being a disciple to Yeshua through her experiences in the years after World War II. I view myself as a very new disciple, and so it was very good to hear another perspective on some of these concepts: trust in God to provide for us, we are to allow God [...]


    12. There are some really great truths in this book written by Corrie Ten Boom. I love her insight and how she can use the struggles she's been through to relate to so many. Each story she tells about reveals how God used or worked through her in some way to fulfill His purpose. I read it twice, love books like this one that inspire and uplift! Favorite quotes:"Whatever the love of God would do is never, by His power, denied.""Jesus is Victor and He uses everyone who is willing to obey Him.""If ther [...]


    13. Another book packed full of wisdom. Corrie shares from her life, travels, and speaking, but there were also lots of good quotes from others. I read the book in a few sittings, but it could serve even better to be read in small snatches and contemplated. One of her gems of wisdom was the prayer she had to pray numerous times as she left people with great needs: "Lord, here they are; help me now to leave them with Thee and continue my way unburdened."Karl Heinz - Forgiveness requires more strength [...]


    14. I was drawn by the idea of forgiveness. Especially how one can experience a Nazi concentration camp and forgive. Along the same idea that I've learned so much of spirituality and positive outlook from Viktor Frankl. This book is Corrie Ten Boom's 2nd written in 1953. It is a collection of stories of her evangelism after her release from Ravensbrook because of a clerical error. I see now that I should have read "The Hiding Place" which is more about her family's betrayal by a Dutch informant for [...]


    15. Not as great as the hiding place or tramp for the Lord, but True Stories of the Power of Forgiveness from the Author of The Hiding Place Corrie ten Boom survived a Nazi concentration camp to become a worldwide witness for Christ. Her story has been told in the movie The Hiding Place, and in this wonderful book she shares with us many more amazing encounters with people in camps and jails, with students and actresses, and with the sophisticated and the illiterate. We meet on these pages not Corri [...]


    16. There is much to learn from someone so wise and kind hearted. I was put off at first once I learned she was an Evangelist, but then I grew to understand that she was so much more. She survived the holocaust and truly learned to live her life in love rather than hate. So many people turn bitter under lesser circumstances. One can learn so much from someone like this. She taught Down's Syndrome and special students and treated them as equals. She spread her understanding that we are all part of th [...]


    17. I listened to the audio version of this book and loved it. the stories may not meld together like many novels, but it is read like a diary of sorts. God is great and these stories of Corrie Ten Boom inspire me to be a better Christian and give me hope for a greater tomorrow! May 18 2015I just listened to this a second time! Corrie sure humbles me and encourages me to live out my faith more boldly and consistently!! March 16 2016


    18. This book makes you think about about the need to forgive others.I chose this rating because it has much depth to the writing. It is easy to read and leaves one much to think about in your walk with God. I highly recommend to others. If she can forgive those for her treatment in concentration camp, then surely we can forgive others.


    19. After reading The Hiding Place, and being completely blown away by it, I was interested in reading more by Corrie Ten Boom. So I picked up this book, and I really enjoyed it. I decided to use Amazing Love as sort of a devotional and read a little bit of it a day. Which worked out very nicely. I gave Amazing Love by Corrie Ten Boom 4 out of 5 stars. definitely worth the read!


    20. I've never read a book by Corrie Ten Boom I didn't find captivating and inspiring. This book contains could be read ad a daily devotional of short vignettes of the power of the redemptive love of Christ. What a testimony Corrie is to God's grace, mercy, love and forgiveness to us in Christ and the transformeing power of His love and forgiveness.


    21. I love Corrie ten Boom. I love her view of life and the Lord and how she speaks about those things. The stories told in this short book were nothing short of amazing, just as the name suggests. However, I wish the chapters were longer and more detailed. Either way, lover of The Hiding Place will certainly enjoy this book from Corrie. What a woman of faith!


    22. Such an incredible woman! These are short little stories from her life and ministry. They would be wonderful to use as a daily devotional. I read the book straight through and was left with a clear and compelling model of life centered on Christ. I am thankful for her example of straightforward faith and obedience.


    23. Short book. Filled with two page stories told by Corrie to demonstrate or help illustrate grace. Love. Faith in the Father. The Gospel. So short, yet so powerful. One, like the book Practice of the Presence, to return to again and again.


    24. This book was very interesting. Corrie ten Boom told little spiritual experiences she had after World War II as she traveled the world speaking to people about God. I liked the way she viewed life and taught those around her about God's love for them. It was a nice read.


    25. This is an uplifting, inspirational compilation of 27 stories in which Corrie Ten Boom shares personal encounters with hurting people, following her release from the Nazi concentration camp, Ravensbruck. Corrie became a worldwide witness for the Lord, sharing Christ wherever the Lord led her.


    26. what an incredible story! so challenging! I never cease to be amazed by people who literally give up everything for the sake of gaining a hearing with someone who had formerly been so completely unlike them. I was half ready to pack my bags and move to Lincoln Park in downtown Long Beach!


    27. This book has short chapters but it has so much packed into each. Forgiveness is a theme that is constantly repeated and if Corrie can forgive anyone can.
