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.
