Book Review: God's Smuggler

source
God's Smuggler written by Brother Andrew with John and Elizabeth Sherrill purposes to "grip readers all over again and inspire a new generation to step out on their own journeys of faith."

Does it grip readers?  Most definitely.  Without the epilogue, the book is about 260 pages but it seemed to end too fast for this reader.  I wanted to read more and more of Brother Andrew's adventures.  Seeing how God transformed this man who smuggled himself out of church services as a child to one who would disperse numerous Bibles throughout the countries behind the Iron Curtain truly amazes one.  

Does it inspire a new generation to step out on their own journeys of faith?  Seeing God work in the most minute detail increases the reader's faith and more importantly implants the desire to see God working in the same manner in his own life.  It opens one's eyes to the plight of the persecuted church and implants a desire to help

The story heroically tells of God who has no impossibilities or difficulties.  Through His instruments, God was able to penetrate man's barriers and proclaim His Word to nations who would have otherwise been left hopeless.  It shed light on how the persecuted church lives and also warns the reader that the biggest enemy is not persecution but indifference.

I would strongly recommend this book to gain information on the needs of the persecuted church and to stir one's own desire to meet that need.

I received this book for free from Bethany House for this review.  This a Chosen book.
