Corrie ten Boom’s “Amazing Love” from

Corrie ten Boom’s remarkable ability to capture her audience and point them to Christ is ever-present in her book, “Amazing Love,” now included in the library at  Her courage as a survivor of a Nazi concentration camp shines as she recounts her many travels around the world following her release.  As Christ was faithful to her during those many months of imprisonment, she was faithful to go throughout the world and spread the love of Christ to all who would listen.

Although she never speaks of her own accomplishments, “Amazing Love” is filled with her wisdom and courage.  The book, first published in 1953, still has so much to teach Christians and non-Christians about God, the love of Christ and evangelism.  Most refreshing is her admission of pride at one point in her life and the results it produced.  She sought and followed the guidance and counsel of others regarding her struggles which is a testimony of humility and trust for us.

Her simple faith should convict us today as we try to make our Christian walk so difficult.  The simple language drew people to her because she uses words everyone can understand.  Even though she never embellished her experiences, she captures the interest of her readers in a remarkable way.

Nadia May, as narrator, was clear and easily understood.  She made the story come alive with proper tones and inflections.  I loved listening to her retell Corrie ten Boom’s story.
