Publisher's Summary

After her release from a concentration camp, Corrie ten Boom set out to become what she called a “tramp for the Lord,” traveling around the world at the direction of God and proclaiming his message everywhere. Throughout her life-long experiences, she learned a few lessons in God’s great classroom, which she here shares with listeners.

Corrie introduces us to her former prison guard, who asks her for forgiveness; a war-crippled lawyer with a soul as twisted and deformed as his limbs; a travel agent who learned that her ultimate destination could not be found on any map; a missionary mother whose unwanted babe ended up saving her life. All these touchingly human vignettes from her life and travels are intertwined with the unique teaching truth that sustained Corrie ten Boom throughout her days.

This moving story begins where Corrie’s beloved best seller The Hiding Place ended. This modest woman, who was also one of the most remarkable evangelists of our time, shows that miracles really do happen. Her own life was living proof.

Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983), born in Holland, has written devotional books and has traveled the world speaking about triumphant living.

Fantastic story

This is the second book read by Wanda that I have listened to and I love the way she interprets it with such passion. Thoroughly enjoyable and profoundly filled with Gods redemption story.

So encouraging!

Corrie ten Boom's simple faith and deep love for God are contagious. Her stories are moving and her applications simple. She doesn't pile on the guilt and yet she makes me want to work harder then ever before for God! It might help awaken your first love!

Definitely worth a listen. I love it how giants of the faith such as Corrie describe themselves as mere sinners who the Lord rescued. I am so encouraged to follow his leading.

Definitely worth your time. It was especially encouraging hearing about forgiveness and "closing the circle." So important for true freedom. This is a book I need to "eat-on" so I bought a copy.

LOVE this book!!!

I loved this book. Ms. Boom is so relatable yet so admirable. I’m so thankful God is still using her life to be a blessing, even as she is in Heaven with Him.

The recording is quite enjoyable as well. You won’t regret listening to this book.

A necessary, timely read you’ll want to listen to more than once.

Corrie’s life are miracles in action. You will be amazed at the strength of her character and the humility when taking responsibility was needed in her life. So much to learn from this incredible lady. Additionally, it is inspiring to see how God specifically uses our lives for good when we give Him the ability to do so.

Listen/read The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom for greater context in Tramp for the Lord. Wanda McCaddon does a superior articulation of sharing Corrie’s experiences. Excellent in all areas.

Beautiful Christian book!

This book is an amazing rendition of a true Christian. The suffering and loss faced by Corrie Ten Boom is face with the Lord Jesus and this book clearly shows this. A truly inspiring story and one that everyone can take something from.

Just as good as 'The Hiding Place'

Corrie's story didn't end with her return home.

This is every bit as inspirational as the more famous Hiding Place. Definitely worth buying.

A Royal Tramp!

I have heard about Corrie ten boom since I was a teenager and read of her life with her sister in the nazi camp during world War two.
This Tramp for the Lord deserves to be a Royal Tramp!
Throughout this book she portrays real evangelism with honesty and truth of her own sins and misgivings yet receives strength when she ask for it.
I love the everyday conversation she has with God when she errs and she shows by example the necessity of relying on and being in prayer and asking for forgiveness.
Her humbleness yet determination to share the word of God no matter where she is a testimony of unfailing love for her saviour.
We may all fall short but we are indeed winners when we rely on Jesus and Corrie ten boom shows this. A wonderful example of a woman sold out for God!
Definitely will listen to this again! What an encouragement!

A powerful testimony

Although some of the language is dated, this is an incredibly powerful story, of its time.
It is the story of a Christin lady who survived Ravensbruck concentration camp (told more fully in her book The Hiding Place).

Tramp for the Lord continues her story of sharing the message of Jesus the Christ, across the world. This last sentence does not do it justice!

It is witty, dramatic, thought-provoking, and above all filled with the light of the Holy Spirit. G_d is in this house, even where it appears empty and Corrie lucidly explains how this happens.

I am so glad I listened to this story and am doing so over and over again for its warmth and spirit.

An incredible story of the adventure of a life lived with and for God. Highly recommended. Wanda McCaddon makes it a joy to listen to and I was sad when it was over. definitely worth reading Corrie Ten Booms other books. they are treasures.
