    1 thought on “God's Smuggler”

    1. Wow. Wow. Wow. This book, ya'll. I just can't even tell you how faith-strengthening, inspiring, adventuresome, and just down-right fun and encouraging this was! Simply amazing! Very highly recommended! Every Christian needs to read this! And even if your not into non-fiction, this is still a great book! At times I had to remind myself that is *was* non-fiction. Go find a copy of this!

    2. In my early days of walking with Christ, it seemed every Christian was recommending this book. Thirty years later, I've finally read it. All I can say is: What took me so long?There have been several books throughout my journey with the Lord that have impacted me so profoundly that I now view the reading of them as milestones in my life. This book may now top the list.In "God's Smuggler," Brother Andrew tells his own story of smuggling Bibles to Christians behind the Iron Curtain. When he first [...]

    3. Written in 1967 I've heard about this book for a long time and always "meant to get around to it". Well based on a recommendation here that reminded me of it I finally got it (after 46 years) and it was well worth the read.First off this is a Christian read, know that going in. While it has value as a read about the Cold War era it is told from the point of view of a Christian missionary (and those involved with him.Now for you who have a knee-jerk bad reaction to the word missionary I can only [...]

    4. This is a classic missionary biography. I just re-read it. I had forgotten that Brother Andrew includes his own personal testimony in the earlier chapters of the book. It's really a great story from angry, drunk, suicidal and anti-God to Christian. God placed people in Andrew's life at key points and I'm sure these people were faithfully praying for him. The Bible smuggling part of the book is incredible and a reminder that God was and is at work to bring His Word to the unreached. Many times Br [...]

    5. My mom gave me this book in college back in 1995, and for some reason, I waited until last week to read it. Finishing it today, I am dumbfounded that I waited so long to read it. I had apparently started reading it back in 2008, judging from a bookmark left in it, but for some reason, never got more than a few pages into it. This time, I couldn't put it down. I was reading it while brushing my teeth, while eating my cereal, while waiting at stop lights. From Brother Andrew's childhood in Nazi-oc [...]

    6. Wow! This is an amazing book! There are really no words to describe it other than Brother Andrew simply living in obedience to God. But how encouraging and faith-building it is to follow years of his ministry! Some people think of doing grand things for Christ, but often, Brother Andrew was just THERE.ng hope to the persecuted Christians that there is someone else in the body praying for them. Reading this book will raise your awareness of persecuted Christians and the struggles they face. It is [...]

    7. Faith. This entire book is a complete exercise in utter faith. I am in awe. This is really one of the best books I've ever read, and I think I will now read everything else that he's written. I think every Christian (oh, well non-Christians too, if they would) should read this. It's also side-splittingly hilarious. Really. And it also takes place partly in Holland. You have no excuse, so go go.

    8. This was by far the BEST non-fiction book I have ever read. It made me reconsider the degree that I believe in miracles. I love God, and always have, but this book showed me how small of a box in which I keep my God. A great read for anyone who is questioning where God is or if he still hears us.

    9. Brother Andrew is by his own admission a very ordinary man. Born in a small village in Sint Pancras, the Netherlands, from an early age he was like many children, dreaming about grand adventures. He's the son of the village blacksmith, living in poverty exacerbated by WWII, who joined the armed forces to find those adventures; although that didn't work out, God planted a seed within him, a seed which grew into the Open Doors ministry. Brother Andrew was born, a man who smuggled Bibles behind the [...]

    10. Ok, this book is AWESOME. All the ways God worked through Brother Andrew's life was just - amazing! And the writing is not one single bit boring either, like I miiiggghhhtt have expected it to be ;)

    11. So very good. My dd and I loved listening to this and were challenged in many unexpected ways. This book will help you love your Bible more and pray -for specifics- more and more frequently.

    12. Written in 1967 I've heard about this book for a long time and always "meant to get around to it". Well based on a recommendation here that reminded me of it I finally got it (after 46 years) and it was well worth the read.First off this is a Christian read, know that going in. While it has value as a read about the Cold War era it is told from the point of view of a Christian missionary (and those involved with him.Now for you who have a knee-jerk bad reaction to the word missionary I can only [...]

    13. "God's Smuggler" is an inspiring story of missions. I'm encouraged to have more faith in God and to treasure the precious Word of God that I often take for granted. I really enjoyed the first few chapters about Brother Andrew's personal testimony and then later, the glimpses behind the Iron Curtain. God is SO BIG and we can always trust Him.Some favorite quotes:"I could hardly wait to tell Corrie what God had done with the thimbleful of willingness we had offered Him.""'Why are we worried!' Rolf [...]

    14. Omigosh! I loved this book so much! This is the story of a missionary, called Brother Andrew, who smuggles Bibles behind the border of the Soviet Union! It was so thrilling; the accounts of guards nearly finding the Bibles and missing them by a hair sometimes, this book will give you the thrill of a spy novel without the romantic scenes.

    15. NOTE: I originally read this book in a different edition called The Narrow Road in 2012, and wrote the review in 2013. I realized a while back that this is the actual book, and I'm finally getting around to moving my review since I just re-read this last week (last week of July 2015).I LOVE THIS BOOK.I'm giving it the incredible status of Best Homeschool Literature Book Ever. Which is saying a lot, since I've read countless books in the ten years I've been homeschooled. I read this one just last [...]

    16. I do not often say that something has changed my life, but the nonfiction book God's Smuggler has changed my life. The man called Brother Andrew (name changed for safety) who lived in Holland before and during the Iron Curtain years, impacted Europe with his faithfulness like no other person I'm aware of. John and Elizabeth Sherrill's dedication to this carefully written and inspiring story touched my own faith-nerve--to live more by faith from day to day. Brother Andrew's openness to sacrifice [...]

    17. It's easy to see why this has been in print since 1967 and sold over ten million copies. God's Smuggler is the riveting story of a young Dutchman's conversion and subsequent life as a missionary. 'Brother' Andrew -- as he is commonly called by friends and colleagues alike -- began his unusual ministry with a trip to Poland where he learned the importance of being there for his brothers and sisters in Christ who were reassured to discover that their fellow Christians in the West hadn't forgotten [...]

    18. Andrew grew up in a poor, but loving family in Holland. Years later found Brother Andrew sneaking behind the Iron Curtain to secretly deliver Bibles to the believers trapped there. Smuggling Bibles isn't without peril and hardships. But Brother Andrew was granted miracles and beautiful friendships with people all over the world that enabled him to spread the message of love to people who were starving for the message.I read this book years ago and couldn't put it down. So I was delighted with a [...]

    19. This is one of my top 20 favorite books I have read ever. Brother Andrew who grew up in a small village in Holland, feels the call to take Bibles to Christians in countries where Bibles are very rare. Sometimes a church has only one, sometimes even the minister does not have a Bible. Living on a shoestring budget he ventures behind the Iron Curtain to countries including Poland, Bulgaria, the Ukraine and Russia. It was illegal to bring Bibles to those countries or to give them away. One person w [...]

    20. Short Review: this is a classic 20th century missionary story. I first read the comic version of the book in the late 1970s as a child. I am not sure if I have read the full thing before or not. This is worth reading but I read it in tension with The God of the Mundane (bookwi/god-of-the-mundane/) because I also agree with the concept of that book that most of our lives as Christians deal with the day to day and not the miraculous. The difficulty is holding up not normal examples of Christian fa [...]

    21. I have heard about this book for most of my life and, while I didn't doubt the quality of the content, I expected it to be hard to read. After deciding to tackle it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was easy to read and extremely engaging. Funny stories throughout the book made me laugh and peoples poignant desire for God's word brought tears to my eyes on several occasions. Written in a style similar to The Hiding Place: 25th Anniversary Edition, I highly recommend this powerful story [...]

    22. I have always been a sucker for good missionary stories. Although this well-known book has been around for ages, I have never read it until now. I am challenged to think more carefully about what I can do to reach out to the persecuted church around the world. As Brother Andrew says, sometimes the best thing you can do is to just be there.

    23. God's Smuggler is a riveting book. It was hard to put down. It is really inspiring how God changed his life and helped him in his missions and life. Looking back, you can see how he played a small part in brining down the iron curtain, by sharing Christ with those who were forbidden to have access to God's word.

    24. It starts of not too interesting but it gets better and half way through it gets really moving. I love this man! He is such a miracle! Especially how he gets healed at the end from his back pain--I could hardly believe he is telling us the truth, but God's miracles are still happening.

    25. This book was stellar. Even though the Communist domination of Eastern Europe seems hard to remember, the battle of a motivated man against a state hostile to his faith was captivating. God was the Star, and His work in Brother Andrew was motivating to follow more closely with what He is doing now.

    26. This is one of the best missionary biographies I have ever read. Brother Andrew smuggles Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. His adventures will astound you. Life-changing.
