It is a great companion book to Amazing Love: True Stories of the Power of Forgiveness.
A Forgiver
If you've read any of her books, you'll notice some repeats of the stories at times.

This is a daily devotional by Corrie Ten Boom that has been sitting in my library all my life. My copy is tattered. Everytime I need to reach for moral courage, integrity, kindness, endurance and empathy, I turn to this 'little' book.

This particular order was for 10 men that I know through a prison ministry who are living in very difficult situations for long periods of their lives. If you need to learn forgiveness, try reading"The Hiding Place." Only the spirit could work through a person to forgive the people she encountered during her stay in a Nazi concentration camp......and forgive...she did!!!!!

I felt so filled with God's love every morning I read this...it was hard not to read the whole thing all at once! What an incredible example of how God can really live through anyone... it's so nice to have a woman of the Lord to look up to, not just a bunch of perfect women on magazines bringing us down every day and making us feel unworthy. God used this book to help me realize it is Him I should be striving for, not the approval of the world. I wrote down quotes from this to remember everyday.

Amazing Love by Corrie Ten Boom is a very uplifting and encouraging book. I thought it interesting that Corrie called herself a troubadour for Christ.

The book consists of twenty-seven chapters and each one is more or less a short story or maybe testimony would be a better word. The chapters include such things as redemption, forgiveness, finances, intercessory prayer, the second coming, and everlasting life. There were several statements in the book that I really liked but I think my favorite was: "Yesterday is a canceled check, today is cash, tomorrow is a promissory note to those who accept the victory of Jesus." Every chapter offered words of wisdom from an author who was in a position to offer such words. Corrie's deep faith and love for Christ comes through each word in the book.

Nadia May is the narrator and does an excellent job.

I received this audio book free from christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for posting a review. ([...]).

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. Corrie uses her trials and triumphs to encourage Christians from all walks of life.

Listening to Amazing Love was entertaining and encouraging. The stories challenged me spiritually while distracting me from the tediousness of laundry. I found listening to this audio book while doing chores quite enjoyable and I would definitely do it again.

Some of my favorite things in Amazing Love were: The discussions about the power of prayer and the different forms of prayer as well as the recurring theme of victorious living through Christ. Corrie used stories of personal victories in her own life to demonstrate her beliefs. One powerful statement was: "The promises of God are greater than the realities of our problems." What a thought. I also enjoyed "The Chocolate Sermon." I won't spoil it by explaining too much. However, the simple truth illustrated in that particular story has the potential to change lives. It doesn't hurt that I happen to love chocolate and can relate to the women in the story. I would not consider this to be a devotional, but it is spiritual uplifting.

Regarding the narration, the narrator's voice matched what I imagine the author's voice to sound like. It was distinguished with an interesting lilt.

This is an excellent book on the art of forgiveness. Corey TenBoom has several books on her life and this book almost reads like a devotional, Short chapters with thoughts to ponder. This is a book that you can read over and over and get more out of it every time. Corrie is so devoted to the Lord and doing his work and she talks about the hard times and how she got through them. She gives all the credit to Jesus and His love for her. This is not a "one read" book but one you can keep on your bookshelf or by your dresser and pick it up and read it over and over again.

I just finished listening to Amazing Love by Corrie ten Boom. This is the first audio book that I am reviewing for ChristianAudio.com. 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's love for others to flow through us, our sins our forgiven, we must forgive those who have sinned against us, the Devil and demons are defeated spirits. There are hefty volumes of theology on all of these topics, but I believe Corrie ten Boom did an excellent job of illustrating them in her life.
