Publisher's Description

As a boy he dreamed of being a spy undercover behind enemy lines. As a man he found himself undercover for God. Brother Andrew was his name and for decades his life story, recounted in God's Smuggler, has awed and inspired millions. The bestseller tells of the young Dutch factory worker's incredible efforts to transport Bibles across closed borders--and the miraculous ways in which God provided for him every step of the way.

Revell and Chosen now reintroduce this powerful story with two new releases: a 35th anniversary edition and The Narrow Road, an expanded youth edition. Both contain a new foreword and afterword. The youth edition also features information about ministry to the persecuted church today, including country profiles, quotes from Christians in underground churches, "what if" scenarios based on real-life threats they face, and stories from others who have participated in Brother Andrew's Bible-smuggling work.

Brother Andrew's story remains as inspiring today as it was thirty-five years ago, and with these new releases it will motivate a whole new generation to risk everything to follow God's call.

Author Bio

Brother Andrew began his work in 1955 as a one-man mission--visiting, teaching, and taking Bibles to Christians behind the Iron Curtain. That work has since developed into Open Doors International, a nondenominational organization with bases around the world. When not traveling, Brother Andrew makes his home in the Netherlands.

    I came upon this book about five years ago for school reading; actually it wasn’t even my school reading, it was my sister’s, but I, being an avid reader, read it also. From what I recall, I loved the book, but that was 5 years ago. When you get older sometimes you read or watch something you once loved and think ‘why in the world did I ever like that’ that was most definitely not the case for this book. I have just completed rereading God’s Smuggler and again absolutely loved it start to finish. Most people would say at this point it was so good I couldn’t put it down, however the characteristic for a good book to me is one I can put down. Why? I don’t know, I guess that’s just the way I roll.
    That aside I will tell you a little of what “God’s Smuggler” is about and what makes it such a good read.
    God’s Smuggler is about a Dutch man who we know as Brother Andrew. This book was published first in 1967, during a time when Brother Andrew was still very active behind the Iron Curtain. This is the reason his full name is not given and so many other names are kept secret. The 35th Anniversary Edition was published in 2001; the main difference is the extended epilogue telling of what has been going on in Brother Andrew’s life since 1967.
    We start off in the book at Brother Andrew’s home town of Witte, Holland. There we find him as a young mischievous boy who longed for adventure. It was that longing for adventure that drove him even as a young adult, and eventually led him to Christ. Not all is easy for Brother Andrew he, loses and gets rejected by loved ones but he also finds friends in the most unexpected places. Most of all he learns what faith in God can do. If we are in God’s will, He will make a way even if all odds seem against us.
    In so many biographies a person cannot relate to the character, as they were people from so long ago or sometimes the books display them as faultless. Brother Andrew of “God’s Smuggler” is neither of these. Brother Andrew’s work is still going on today, and he is displayed for who he truly is an imperfect human being. He goes through the same pain, and the same numbness and wondering “what in the world does God want me to do now” as everyone does. This is why when he was sad I felt sad, when something good happened in the story I felt excited.
    I would recommend this book to anyone. If you are looking for humor, adventure, encouragement and, yes, even a little romance, you will find it in “God’s Smuggler”. Even if you’re not looking for any of those things and just want, or even need to read a missionary biography, this is the one to read.

    A truly remarkable book. A story about a man who knew no fear, only the fear of the LORD. This book has opened my eyes to many things. One, it has made me appreciate the blessings of America. The little things we take for granted such as opening a bible in public, praying in public real quick, sharing the good news, etc. Also, this book has opened my eyes to the persecution of brothers and sister across the world and has motivated me to pray for them. Finally, it is a thriller/adventure book. I believe this is a MUST read for Christians.

    I never read the book before, but the story of Brother Andrew is stimulating, challenging and encouraging. The audio version is the best audio book I have ever listened to - very well done, with a light British accent!
