    An inspiring thought-provoking read

    As a boy, Brother Andrew had always dreamed of "adventure", but little did he know just how adventurous God's plans for him were. The Iron Curtain that held so many out could not hold him when he was smuggling Bibles and encouraging the Church. God closed the eyes of the officers at checkpoints, God let rain fall so no one would see them unpacking Bibles in the car, God provided enough money just when it was needed. And so, so much more...

    I don't read much non-fiction, but this was ABSOLUTELY GREAT! I could almost imagine the places he was describing, I would worry about how they were going to get out of this one. But God always provided. Fast-paced and insightful, this book is a true life story like not many other. I recommend everyone over twelve read it.

    The Iron Curtain isn't there anymore, but God's Smuggler ends with a call - to the growing world of Islam. Open Door's website has more info on how YOU can help the persecuted Christians in the world.

    Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die. Revelation 3:2a (NIV)

    Excellent! The book is not only well written and captivating, it also is challenging to grow in one's faith. The demonstration of what God does in response to deep, abiding and unconditional faith is truly amazing!

    This copy of God's Smuggler was written by Brother Andrew with John and Elizabeth Sherrill. This expanded edition includes photos taken throughout Brother Andrew's life and an epilogue of Q&A with Brother Andrew.

    It's not often a book really inspires me or speaks to me deep into my soul but this is one of those books that do and did.

    It is amazing how God can use anyone to do His work. It doesn't matter your education or qualifications; God wants a willing heart, devoted to doing His will. Andrew was a young man who wanted adventure. He joined the Dutch army and went off to war for a couple of years. He ended up having a bullet shatter his ankle. It took a long time to heal, but even then it hurt when he walked on it, no matter the distance. He realized war was not the adventure he was looking for. During this time of healing on a hospital bed, he found God. This is Andrew's story about the true adventure that only God could orchestrate, smuggling Bibles into communist countries.

    This book inspired me, creating a desire to truly walk by faith, to seek God for all things. To let His Holy Spirit lead you and me in the way we should go.

    I received this complementary book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    The Best Kind of Spy Story

    This version of Gods Smuggler is an updated and expanded Christian classic. I have not read previous versions, but am so glad I had the opportunity to read this one. It has inspired me, and I loved every minute of the adventure. In fact, since it arrived, I have read it twice.

    Put simply, this is an inspiring and gripping adventure of simple faith in God.

    Brother Andrew was born an adventurer. We get to know this about him as the writer shares some of his childhood antics, even against German soldiers during the occupation. When Andrew was old enough, he joined the Dutch army for adventure. However, it was not long until the pain and trauma of war overtook Andrew. In the hospital, he remembered the Bible his mother gave him and began to turn to the Lord. We get to see his journey of transformation as he comes to a full and complete surrender.

    Then as Andrew began to grow in his new Christian life, God called him to a mission that fit perfectly with his personalitya mission of adventure, smuggling Bibles and encouraging other Christians far from home. Additionally, in this new and updated version we get to hear about Brother Andrew's meeting with Hezbollah, and also what he and the Open Doors ministry are doing today in the Islamic world.

    Takeaways

    The book shows:

    The power of prayer.

    How God uses a fully believing and surrendered heart.

    How God connects us with the right people at the right times and places.

    How God provides.

    How God uses simple obedience to transform lives.

    How God gently leads us by steps into what He has for us.

    God has used Brother Andrews life story to inspire, encourage, and build my faith. When I first received the book, it sat on my nightstand for a week or so without my opening it. Then one night I was contemplating reading the book, and I heard the Lord say, I sent you this book. I opened it and didnt put it down until the early morning hours. So, if you are reading this review, you need to get the book. It is a thrilling adventure that at the same time will minister to your spirit and soul.

    I received this book from the publisher, Chosen, in exchange for an honest review.

    I don't like biographies. I just do not like them, they bore me. But, this book was amazing. I cannot think of enough words to describe it. It had me hooked from the very first chapter. Brother Andrew's faith was so so inspiring and encouraging. The miracles that God preformed in his life literally brought tears to me eyes. I believe every Christian, young or old, should read this captivating story.

    On the book cover, it says "more thrilling than a spy story." That could not be more true. From Brother Andrew's time in war, to smuggling a Bible bedtime the Iron Curtain, it was all way more thrilling than any spy story I have read.

    His story proves that no matter what your past, what you have done, God still loves you and He wants to use you. God can and will forgive you. The description says it will "inspire a new generation to step out on their own journeys of faith." That's definitely what this book done for me.
