Read full description of the books Amazing Love:“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 and she is very easy to understand. I truly hope to hear more books narrarated by her in the future!
Growing up, I read Corrie’s book, “The Hiding Place,” for a book report and was so horrified at the trials that this woman had to endure. To have been able to listen to her story now, years later, and the intense love that our Heavenly Father had for this woman, a humble watchmaker, it brought new revelation of what a wonderful God we serve. Instead of allowing herself to become embittered, she made the choice to allow the love of God to shine through her life.
I was so pleased to listen to the different people that Corrie was able to touch with the love of God! Inmates in various prison cells, Hollywood stars, and even the very people who had abused her and her sister in the concentration camps. She chose the high road, to love, not to hate.
Corrie Ten Boom by far is one of the most inspirational people I have ever read about. Her simple faith will challenge you to move beyond the limitations that we have been taught to place within our own lives. She does not judge, but she does pose a challenge to live out the love of God, rather than just talk about it. She has a very timely message for the culture and society in which we live in today. I hope you will consider adding this book to your collection!

Read information about the authorCorrie ten Boom and her family were Christians who were active in social work in their home town of Haarlem, the Netherlands. During the Nazi occupation, they chose to act out their faith through peaceful resistance to the Nazis by active participation in the Dutch underground. They were hiding, feeding and transporting Jews and underground members hunted by the Gestapo out of the country. It is estimated they were able to save the lives of 800 Jews, in addition to protecting underground workers.
On Feb. 28, 1944, they were betrayed and Corrie and several relatives were arrested. The four Jews and two underground workers in the house at the time of the arrest were not located by the Nazis and were extricated by the underground 47 hours after they fled to the tiny hiding place (located in Corrie's room).
The ten Boom family members were separated and transferred to concentration camps. Corrie was allowed to stay with her precious sister, Betsy. Corrie's father (Casper), her sister (Betsy) and one grandchild (Kik) perished. Corrie was released in December of 1944.
These acts of heroism and sacrifice became the foundation for Corrie ten Boom's global writing and speaking career which began after she was released.
Ten Boom has received numerous awards for her writing and speaking. Notably, she was honored by the State of Israel for her work in aid of the Jewish people by being invited to plant a tree in the famous Avenue of the Righteous Gentiles, at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, near Jerusalem. She was also knighted by the Queen of the Netherlands in recognition of her work during the war, and a museum in the Dutch city of Haarlem is dedicated to her and her family.
