Corrie ten Boom was an amazing woman of courage who survived concentration camps during World War I, saw her beloved sister die, and then spent her later years bringing the good news of Jesus to people all around the world, including some of her former captors.

This book is a series of anecdotes which Corrie ten Boom described after talks she had given, or people she had met, when the discussion turned to the love of God. Unfortunately, although the stories are positive, and the experiences must have been powerful at the time, the writing is stilted and there's not enough detail to make them particularly interesting. Perhaps they lost something in the translation.

In addition, there seems to be no particular organisation to the book. Each section is just two or three pages, and mostly they're unconnected. If they are chronological, it is not obvious.

It was encouraging to read over a few days; it's not a long book (just over 100 pages in all) but I would not particularly recommend it, other than to people eager to read more about the author. ( )
