About the Author

Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) was born in Haarlem, The Netherlands. After being arrested in 1944 for helping Jews escape the Nazi regime, Corrie spent the last year of World War II in various prison camps. After the war, she was invited to share her experiences in over sixty countries and was honored by the state of Israel for her work during the war. Her life story, "The Hiding Place", was originally released in 1971. In 1977, she settled in California, where she remained until her death in 1983, on her 91st birthday.

Tramp for the Lord is a must read. Corrie's accounts of her travels will inspire, uplift, and teach you many things. For example, if you have ever felt that God could never use you after you've really blown it then you will be encouraged by her story of her plane ride that nearly ended in a crash. During the tense flight she wanted to tell everyone about the gospel before it was too late but she was ashamed and afraid. When the plane landed safely she felt very discouraged with herself. But then a man from the same flight told her that he was amazed at her composure during the high-strung flight and wanted to know what was the secret of her peace. She then shared the gospel with him. He thanked her for giving him much to think about and she thanked God for giving her a second chance. Corrie's adventure illustrates how wonderful our God is for giving us second chances after we feel that we have really failed him.
Throughout Corrie teaches us what it is to be very sensitive to God's Holy Spirit in our lives. Sensitive so that when God tells us to make changes in our life we won't wait or make excuses but just be obedient. God can then use you and me like He did Corrie - a tramp for the Lord.

This sequel to The Hiding Place is a book filled with short chapters which take place all over the world and at different times of Corrie's life. If you haven't yet read The Hiding Place, I recommend that you should read that book first.
Since this book is a collection of short anecdotes, it's not necessary to read it straight through.
I especially enjoyed the chapter entitled "God's Word, the Sword - God's Perfect Weapon". You will be inspired by "One Finger for His Glory" which describes an old woman, crippled with MS, who used one finger to type out translations of the books of Billy Graham, Corrie, and Watchman Nee into her own Russian language.
Please check out my review of "Anywhere He Leads Me", a book of devotionals by Corrie Ten Boom, compiled by Judith Couchman. I highly recommend this book and this book is what got me interested in reading "The Hiding Place".
God bless you!

I read this book with a box of Kleenex!
I think a better way to have read it is daily, like a devotional. The chapters are short, 6 pages tops, and they take one scripture as the theme. Corrie would go into how that scripture was driven home to her, through certain circumstances.
The only suggestion I would give is to first read The Hiding Place, you will have a better understand of what this woman went through, and how she was used by God. This book goes into life after the concentration camps, so it is good to have a knowledge of what her life was like before.

I had read THE HIDING PLACE by Corrie ten Boom back in the tenth grade, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just recently, my interest in Corrie ten Boom resurfaced, and I found myself wondering, "What happened AFTER she was released from the concentration camp?" I picked up a copy of TRAMP FOR THE LORD, and read straight through in just a couple days. The book answered my question.

TRAMP FOR THE LORD starts off right where THE HIDING PLACE ends, with Corrie ten Boom returning to Holland, and searching out her new mission in post-prison life. She turns to globe-trotting the world and spreading her story and the love of Jesus with everyone she meets. The stories she tells in this book in 35 little chapters adds up to an amazing adventure that will leave you wanting more. Corrie spent almost 20 years traveling the world, and she has a lot of amazing stories and insights in life to share.

So, if you're looking for some encouragement, a great read, or something to work through devotionally, TRAMP FOR THE LORD is a great book. (Also, the ending chapter sets up IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE perfectly. That book details the events of Corrie's life leading up to THE HIDING PLACE. Check it out as well!)

I was touched repeatedly by her stories of courage, love, and forgiveness. I sensed an underlying message that happiness comes from walking in obedience to the Lord, whenever and however He requests it from us. Very moving and difficult to put down!

For those who have read Corrie Ten Boom's, The Hiding Place, you'll know that this is an amazing lady. Corrie Ten Boom was a Dutch Christian who helped Jews escape the Nazi's in World War 2. Discovered by the Gestapo, she and 4 other members of her family were deported to Ravensbruk concentration camp. After I read the Hiding Place, I was delighted to learn about Corrie's next book, Tramp for the Lord. I have read it as well as listened to it as an audiobook. Tramp for the Lord details Corrie's life after her release from Ravensbruk. For the next 30 years, Corrie travelled the world spreading the message of Jesus and his great love for us.

There are two things about this book that really resonate with me. First is the fact that Corrie travelled the world sharing God's message, not as a young woman, but as a woman in her 50's--she continued until she was in her 80's. Amazing! Her life's work began when most of us are thinking of retirement. I am encouraged and inspired about what lies ahead in my own future. We are never too old to accomplish our dreams and the plan that our Heavenly Father has for us in our lives.

The second thing that resonates with me is Corrie Ten Boom's character and personality. Tramp for the Lord describes a remarkable woman and the lives she touched through her travels. Although she was known and loved by thousands of people around the world who listened to her message, she remained humble and never took credit for her work--she gave the credit to God. Her popularity did not go to her head; she was very down-to-earth and never hesitated to admit her weaknesses and to ask forgiveness of others. She never put herself on a pedestal or sought fame and glory for herself.
