Everyone who is interested in the conflict between the Muslims and Jews should read this book. It will give you a better understanding of the conflict and a new view of the suffering of the Palestinians at the hands of the Jews. Whether you agree with what Brother Andrew did in bringing support to Palestinian Christians or not, you will learn what the press doesn't tell us.
A stirring account of the problems Christians in Lebanon and Palestine face in light of the war in Middle East. Brother Andrew just amazes me as he is able to have access to the top leadership of the various terrorist organisations there so that he can bring the gospel to them, and hopefully bring the Lord of peace into their hearts. It also tells the accounts of how Palestinian and Jewsih Christians struggled to accept each other as brothers and sisters amidst the hatred their peoples have for each other. This book will stir your hearts, encourage you to be bold to preach the gospel in season and out of season, warn you to be well equipped with your knowledge of God's word as you can be well put in a spot by Muslim thinkers, and depend on God fully in the midst of great trials and tribulations. In fact, some of you might even want to make a trip to Bethlehem Bible College to be a short term volunteer after reading this book!
A stirring book for the intercessor. My prayer time for my brothers and sisters in the 'Desert' has focused and intensified. Once again, Brother Andrew touches my heart as he humbly reaches out to touch the 'untouchable'.
Brother Andrew, well known during the Cold War-era as Gods Smuggler, has been called by the Lord to go to the Middle East as friend, prayer partner, advocate, and amanuensis. Operation Desert Light tells the engrossing story of these adventures over the last several decades. From country to country, chronologically presenting the growing story, Operation Desert Light gives intimate glimpses into the lives of endangered, dying, and dead Christians as well as others from Lebanon, Gaza, and Israel. Armed only with his Bible, Christian literature, love flowing through him from God, and Gods directive, Brother Andrew lived with these people, learned their problems first hand, and sought ways to help them help themselves. He went to all who needed an understanding ear and voice: Palestinian, Israeli, and terrorist. This is not a politically-correct volume. There is no rhetoric, just a heart-stopping, direct account. Brother Andrew tells why Christians hurt, sometimes in graphic detail, and how they help or harm each other in these terrible situations. He gives reasons why terrorists hate. He never takes any one side, sometimes even wondering how he, who loves Gods people, the Israelis, can feel so much sympathy with other groups. With both tragedy and triumph portrayed, as you read this book be prepared to think the thoughts of other people, feel their desperations, and agonize as they seek the Lords will for their lives. Be prepared to be moved out of your comfortable American way of life and thinking. Operation Desert Light is the youth version of the 2004 book Light Force. Keeping the same narrative, important side bars and closing materials have been added. I would encourage you to read one of these books either Operation Desert Light or Light Force. Another good companion book to these, one which I have just recently reviewed, is Paul Meets Mohammad by Michael Licona. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
