"Tramp For the Lord" review


In 1940, Corrie ten Boom was living with her father and sister above their watch shop in Haarlem, Holland—and when their country was invaded, this devoutly Christian family provided sanctuary for persecuted Jews. Before long, the Nazis captured Corrie and her family. They were sent to a concentration camp, where Corrie lost both her sister and father. But remarkably, throughout this turbulent time, Corrie sustained the faith in God that helped her become one of the most beloved evangelists of her time.

Tramp for the Lord continues Corrie ten Boom's extraordinary journey of hope following the events recounted in her bestseller The Hiding Place. From her near-destitute days in postwar New York to heart-stopping adventures in Africa, Corrie's inspirational life story proves that miracles do happen.

My Review:

     Tramp For the Lord is the amazing story of Corrie ten Boom as she travels through the world, following God's leading! The book is full of lessons she learned and lessons she taught to others around her. She doesn't hesitate to say that after 80+ years she still learned new lessons about God. Her life as a "tramp for the Lord" shows what can happen when you dedicate your life to His glory. The book is interesting and valuable for learning about the Christian life, however, I didn't enjoy it as much as The Hiding Place. This is a good sequel to read for those who enjoy reading about the life of an amazing woman--Corrie ten Boom!
