Challenged by the Lord to minister to Middle Eastern churches existing by life support, Brother Andrew explains why his personal mission shifted from evangelism behind the Iron Curtain to the struggling Christian churches caught in the crosshairs of the current conflict.
Brother Andrew's ministry began with smuggling Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. His phenomenally successful book God's Smuggler was born from that mission.
But as communism in Eastern Europe declined, Brother Andrew shifted his focus to strengthening the Christian church within the Islamic world. In a time when a mass exodus of Christians has drained the Middle East of God's light, Brother Andrew headed into this war-torn land to bring hope and encouragement to those who remained.
Light Force recounts the continuing saga of Brother Andrew's most recent mission. 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 readers can join Brother Andrew and fellow Open Doors missionary Al Janssen in their quest to strengthen God's light in the Middle East. These gripping accounts of Christians caught in the crossfire will captivate readers everywhere.
Brother Andrew began taking Bibles to Christians behind closed borders in 1955. That work has since developed into Open Doors International. When not traveling, Brother Andrew makes his home in the Netherlands.
Al Janssen has co-written or authored more than twenty-five books, including Focus on the Family's The Marriage Masterpiece. 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.
