Item description for Tramp For The Lord by Corrie Ten Boom...

In an inspirational autobiography, a woman who provided sanctuary and protection for persecuted Jews in Holland until she and her family were captured by the Nazis describes her post-World War II travels throughout the world to spread the message of Christ. Reprint.

Publishers Description
"Although the threads of my life have often seemed knotted, I know, by faith, that on the other side of the embroidery there is a crown. As I have walked the world--a tramp for the Lord--I have learned a few lessons in God's great classroom."

Corrie ten Boom was a 48-year old watchmaker in Haarlem, Holland in 1940 when the Nazis occupied the country during World War II, and she and her family gave sanctuary to Amsterdam's Jews to protect them. Although Corrie was betrayed and imprisoned, and suffered the loss of her family, she survived Hitler's concentration camps with an unwavering faith in God that sustained her and paved the path for her true calling as one of the most remarkable evangelists of our time.

Tramp for the Lord continues Corrie ten Boom's extraordinary journey of hope following the events recounted in her bestseller The Hiding Place. From her near-destitute days in postwar New York to heart-stopping adventures in Africa, Corrie's inspirational life story proves that miracles do happen.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tramp For The Lord?

Tramp for the Lord by Corrie ten Boom  Mar 13, 2007
Tramp for the Lord is ONE of the most rewarding books I have ever read in my life. Everyone should read this book. She too was a human who sinned and came short of the glory of God. Corrie shares so much of her heart and life - not only because of her experiences in prison, but in every day life as she traveled the United States and to other countries to share God's work. As she experienced real life situations with ordinary people, that grew her daily in her walk with God, because as Paul learned, God's work was not easy. It was those situations that she shared in "Tramp for the Lord" that she was also growing with each situation she faced as Paul did as he continued in his day discipling for God. Corrie's book, "Tramp for the Lord," is a must read after "the Hiding Place" and will be hard to put down.
Joy. "Pure" joy.  Dec 10, 2006
An excerpt of this book might say it all (from Chapter 5)...

"A great ocean separated me from my homeland. I had no money. Nobody wanted to hear my lectures. All I had was an inner word from God that He was guiding me. Was it enough? All I could do was press on--and on--and on--for His Name's sake. Before going to sleep I opened my Bible, my constant companion. My eyes fell on a verse from the Psalms, "The Lord taketh those that hope in His mercy" (147:11). It was a thin web--a tiny filament--stretching from heaven to my little room on 190th Street in New York. I fell asleep holding on to it with all my strength."

Oh, what a joy to learn that God is for us and not against us! I highly recommend this book.
Awesome inspiration  Aug 23, 2006
I have never read a book that has touched me so much. What a wonderful trust in God! If we all had a third of the love that Corrie ten boom has for her fellow man this world would be a different and better place. I wish everyone could read this book.
Amazing book about an amazing woman  Sep 12, 2005
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!)
"devotional" sequel to The Hiding Place  May 4, 2005
This book is the sequel to "The Hiding Place". (Corrie and her family hid Jews during WWII. They were caught...Corrie's father and sister died, but Corrie survived and was eventually released from the concentration camp.)

After the war, Corrie started travelling the world sharing her Christian faith. She became a "Tramp for the Lord"! Each chapter of this book "stands alone" and tells of a different experience she had as she travelled...Each chapter is also based on specific Bible verses. It is almost "devotional" in how it reads...In fact, you really could read one chapter a day and make this your daily devotional reading for awhile!

This book was inspiring, encouraging, and motivating...It shows the powerful way Jesus can use someone when their heart is truly committed to Him. I recommend it!
