Amazing Love - True Stories of the Power of Forgiveness by Corrie ten Boom

Amazing Love - True Stories of the Power of Forgiveness by Corrie ten Boom

Following her release from a Nazi concentration camp, Corrie ten Boom refused to give in to the weakness of anger. Instead, she chose to forgive her captors and spread the message of Christ’s love throughout the world. Amazing Love shares Corrie’s incredible stories of encounters with people from all walks of life and shows us how a childlike faith in the wisdom and love of God pushes us to forgive the seemingly impossible. Within these pages you will meet Corrie ten Boom, but you will also meet Corrie’s Christ. 

Excerpt from Foreword by Norman Grubb

Having found for herself the victory that overcomes the world in the horrors of a concentration camp, she cannot keep her secret to herself. She has become a worldwide witness, a troubadour of Christ. She shares with us in these pages, with all the vividness of firsthand experience, contacts, and conversations with all sorts in camps and jails, with actresses and students, with sophisticated and illiterate; and I lay down this manuscript saying, like those two disciples of old, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road?” (Luke 24:32). For I met not Corrie, but Corrie’s Christ. 

About Corrie ten Boom:

It is hard to overestimate the impact of the life of Corrie ten Boom. As a result of hiding Jews in her Holland home in the midst of World War II, Corrie ended up in a Nazi concentration camp where she continued to speak the love of Christ. A miraculous release gave Corrie the chance to begin an international ministry of writing and speaking, sharing Christ, and counseling the hurting as a self-titled “tramp for the Lord”. Corrie died in 1983, on her ninety-first birthday. Among Corrie’s most loved titles are The Hiding Place and Tramp for the Lord.

Through her book Amazing Love, Holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom shares incredible stories of her encounters with people following her release from the concentration camp.

About Amazing Love

Fort Washington, PA, January 5, 2018: If you’ve read Corrie ten Boom’s The Hiding Place, then you know Corrie’s story. She sacrificed her own safety to hide Jews in her home, was arrested, and endured the horrors of Nazi concentration camps. We saw through the pages of The Hiding Place Corrie’s faith and God’s miraculous work and grace; but what happened after? Amazing Love reveals this to us in short stories of Corrie’s encounters with people from all walks of life—inmates, a former soldier of Hitler, Hollywood stars, and many others. We see the amazing way in which Corrie shared her faith to the lost, which she did because of the love she had for the Lord and His people.

In Amazing Love, we learn that Corrie’s one fear, understandably, was returning to Germany. But what if God called her to do so? As difficult as it was, she learned that to experience God’s guidance in your life you must be obedient to Him. Through her stories, we learn about God’s work in Corrie’s life. She shares how she prayed when she felt inadequate, what she did when God called her to do the one thing she most dreaded, and how she forgave the seemingly impossible. All of this was accomplished only through Christ; and, the same God that performed those miracles in Corrie’s life continues to do so in us today.

In January 2018, a new edition of Corrie ten Boom’s Amazing Love will be released, which features a beautiful watercolour style cover, a modern typeface, and the same impactful testimonies of Corrie ten Boom.
