About the author
It is hard to overestimate the impact of the life of Corrie ten Boom. She and her family risked their lives by hiding Jews in occupied Holland during World War II. Arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Ravensbruck, the notorious Nazi concentration camp, she found for herself the victory that overcomes the world. After being miraculously released, Corrie began an international ministry of writing and speaking. Her extensive traveling to share Christ and counsel the hurting made her a worldwide witness, or, as she put it, a “tramp for the Lord.” Corrie died in 1983, on her 91st birthday.
