Product Description

These are the stories you haven't heard on the news. These are the people you will never forget.

In the midst of never-ending debates, protests, riots, suicide bombings, and broken peace initiatives, one man came to make a difference. Previously known for his determination to deliver Bibles behind the Iron Curtain, Brother Andrew has spent the last thirty years on a very different quest. Traveling to Lebanon, the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel, Brother Andrew (God's Smuggler) has sought out church leaders and urged them not to flee the violence but to stay and strengthen their congregations to become a force for change. His mission: to bring hope to the believers caught in the crossfire of the most volatile region on earth.

Publisher's Description

For years, Christians have fled from the horrific conflict in the Middle East. Today, in the land where the church began, less than two percent of the people in Israel, West Bank and Gaza are Christians. Yet that remnant holds the hope for peace-if they can only persevere in faith and not be discouraged.

Light Force is the remarkable story of Brother Andrew's mission to seek out the church in the Middle East, learn about its conditions and needs, and do whatever he can to strengthen what remains. Through dramatic true stories, readers get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at real people affected by the centuries-old conflicts in this volatile part of the world.

Now available in paper, this gripping account of the church caught in the crossfire will captivate readers everywhere.

Author Bio

Brother Andrew began taking Bibles to Christians behind closed borders in 1955. That work has since developed into Open Doors International. He is the author and coauthor of numerous books, including God's Smuggler, The Narrow Road, and Light Force. When not traveling, Brother Andrew makes his home in the Netherlands.

Al Janssen has cowritten or authored more than twenty-five books, including Light Force. He is chairman of the board for Open Doors (USA) with Brother Andrew and is director of communications for Open Doors International. Janssen lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Light Force (def.): those engaged in actively bringing God’s light to those who need it, no matter who they are. And who they are in this book can be very frightening. Brother Andrew, well known during the Cold War-era as God’s Smuggler, has more recently been called by his Lord to the Middle East as friend, advocate, and prayer partner of the Israelis, the Palestinians, and terrorist groups like Hamas.
An excellent, gripping, challenging book, Light Force will engender argument, questions, and a deep look at your own spiritual life. At 76 years old, Brother Andrew describes his journey to minister to the persecuted church in that region, and in the process reveals his passion for all who are lost.
The author and publisher felt Light Force to be so important they published a youth version this year. Further information about this book can be found under the title of its newer version, Operation Desert Light. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
