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!

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. When he first In my early days of walking with Christ, it seemed every Christian was recommending this book. When he first started this ministry, he just went alone and carried Bibles and literature with him. He began to see just how limited religious freedom was in many of the Communist countries, and his burden grew to get as many Bibles to as many people as possible.

In some cases, he found churches with no Bibles in their possessions. Just bringing one single Bible to such a fellowship would bring tears of gratitude and appreciation. It is indeed moving to read of these people who thirsted for Word of God and were not allowed to have it. Brother Andrew's work was dangerous. It would sometimes take a couple of hours to get across a border as guards emptied trunks, removed hub caps, opened hoods, etc.

Andrew was often aware of state officials keeping an eye on him wherever he went in some of these countries. But he pressed on, believing the work was worth the risk, and seeing God do some pretty amazing things along the way. This is a book about serving God faithfully and trusting God implicitly. Brother Andrew now considers this book to be a curse because it has caused many people to elevate him to superstar status. He regrets that that has happened and believes he was only doing what any Christian should do.

If you read this book, you may find yourself wanting to do just that. View 2 comments. An amazing true story that goes to show what complete faith in God can do! I was amazed at how many times God supplied al of the needs! View all 3 comments. Sep 05, Natalie Vellacott rated it really liked it Shelves: christian-missions. 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 This is a classic missionary biography.

KENSHI Review - SSS Rank: Smuggling™ - Starvation™ - Slavery™

Many times Bro Andrew and his team prayed as they crossed various borders carrying much needed Bibles illegally into "closed" countries in Eastern Europe and later to China. The guards nearly always searched the vehicles but found nothing! Although later Bro Andrew discovered that various secret police were fully aware of his activities and chose to allow it to continue Some charismatic leanings but not a big focus in the book and doesn't detract from the content.

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 Written in I've heard about this book for a long time and always "meant to get around to it". Now for you who have a knee-jerk bad reaction to the word missionary I can only say that said reaction isn't a balanced one and is based on the worst examples of those who call themselves Christian.

I can only suggest that you treat this and all accounts with an open mind. I won't try to tell the story here that's in the book, but maybe give it a shot?

I will say that the events recounted here caused me to reevaluate my own life, my own Christianity, my own faith and my attitude toward faith. I've known for some time that the phrase "my faith" is a misnomer in that we need "the faith of Christ" not "our own" faith. Brother Andrew Andrew van der Bijl lived that out. He did it with God's help in a simple low key way. From his home in the Netherlands he traveled to and through the Iron Curtain countries and later across the world witnessing and speaking of Christ.

As I said, this is frankly a Christian book. We are drawn to Brother Andrew because we relate to him. And in reading about him, we are delighted to see how God used an ordinary man like Brother Andrew.

Because his story suggests God might also use ordinary people like us in extraordinary ways. If Brother Andrew talked with each of us, he would likely encourage us along these exact lines. And that call is extended to every Christian, not just a select few. Perhaps not surprisingly, many ordinary people have been inspired by Brother Andrew to find ways they can support persecuted Christians.

Thanks, in part, to their contributions, Open Doors has expanded many times over. Today, Open Doors has bases and staff all over the world who work to support persecuted believers in more than 60 countries. These people, along with our supporters, still smuggle Bibles into regions that are hostile to the faith.

Additional Information

Open Doors is the movement that Brother Andrew inspired. And those of us who are a part of it, like Andrew, welcome anyone who follows Christ to come alongside us and join our work. We hope today you will choose to join us in being the Brother Andrews of this generation. Cleary they underestimated the Bible, and this might be God's opportunity.

I knew from personal experiences how powerful a tool the Bible could be in the hands of the Holy Spirit. Hadn't I myself been converted simply by reading this book? Mar 31, Micaiah rated it it was amazing Shelves: my-favorites. Original review: Awesome! The best biography I've ever read, I think, or at least one of them! I am now a fan of Brother Andrew. Updated Review: Rating: 5 big stars! God's Smuggler has to be one of my favorite biographies - of all time. It inspired my faith and touched my heart.

It was exciting, informative, and just plain amazing! When I first heard that my mom wanted me to read this, I was a little upset haha! Yes, unfortunately. I thought that God's Smuggler would be boring and I wouldn't enjoy.

    May 07, Jasmine Wheeler rated it it was amazing. 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. May 14, Katrina rated it really liked it. Excellent story of an ordinary guy who answered the call to live an extraordinary life trusting God.

    Sep 01, Sarah Morgan rated it it was amazing. Amazing story of God's faithfulness in this incredible man's life. Definitely a great read! Jan 09, Krista rated it it was amazing. I have been very encouraged in the faith by reading the testimony of how our God works. Definitely will revisit this one. In addition, I have been educated in communist and post WW2 Europe. I now know how little I know about what all went on over there! May 13, momma. This is a fantastic book about trusting God implicitly and serving him faithfully.

    Aug 07, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , life-changing , bios , non-fiction , school-lit. 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 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 year for school, and fell in love with it from the first chapter. It was one of those books I couldn't wait to read the next chapter of, yet didn't mind waiting to read only one chapter a day, rather than just demolishing the thing all at once. I saved it for last on the good days, and when I was feeling grumpy I read it first and I'm serious, it made the rest of the school not seem half as bad because I was laughing so hard and smiling as I thought about the chapter.

    The thing is It's beautiful, funny, thought-provoking, and utterly true. I love this story so much and I know I'm going to keep reading it again, and again, and again. It challenges you to view our "modern" Christian world here in the countries where we still have some sort of religious freedom differently. I know one thing that's not left my mind since the first time I read the book was, "What would these persecuted believers think of our flashy, entertaining church services? Nov 09, D. Telbat rated it it was amazing Shelves: christian-must-reads. 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 I do not often say that something has changed my life, but the nonfiction book God's Smuggler has changed my life.

    Brother Andrew's openness to sacrifice and prayer were just two topics exemplified in this true thriller of a Bible smuggler's life. With the people who supported and taught him, as well as with those who opposed him—-Brother Andrew approached each day willing to be led by God regardless of the circumstances. He learned to live in God's arms, and we can learn from him. This challenged me in my own life. God is in control. Romans Brother Andrew's zeal to preach Christ and His Word above all else led him to make a statement that has convicted me about the way I sometimes write and speak to others.

    He said when we have more to say about certain evils than we have to say about the goodness of Christ, then we are ill equipped for faithful service. If you have a heart for missions, this is a must-read. I regret not having read this book sooner, but having read it now, I will not ignore its powerful message and example.

A roguish Dutch boy named Andrew runs from God only to become a risk taker for God's Kingdom by smuggling Bibles and other materials to Christians behind the Iron and Bamboo curtains.

    I couldn't put it down. Sometimes a book just hits you at the right time. Back in a dear friend gave this to me in order to encourage me that God would use me in His timing. Sadly, I delayed reading the bo A truly wonderful book! Sadly, I delayed reading the book for 15 years. But in another way, it was like a release capsule that provided medicine for my soul when I most needed it.

    Wonderful story following the life of a young Dutch troublemaker who grows up to become first a soldier on the brink of despair and eventually a missionary smuggling thousands of Bibles into numerous communist nations. Good, but not fabulous, writing. My only real quibble with the book was the notion that missionaries should do their work without first seeking funding or Wonderful story following the life of a young Dutch troublemaker who grows up to become first a soldier on the brink of despair and eventually a missionary smuggling thousands of Bibles into numerous communist nations.

    My only real quibble with the book was the notion that missionaries should do their work without first seeking funding or material assistance, as though financial preparedness demonstrated a lack of faith. The worker is worthy of his wages. In this book, God provides through extraordinary means. This method of asking God directly for things in order to avoid asking His people seemed at times to border on putting God to the test.

    Other than that, a very inspiring and encouraging read. Jan 27, booklady rated it it was amazing Shelves: adventure , family , hagiography , travel , non-fiction , religion , history , war , spiritual , It's easy to see why this has been in print since 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. Andrew was told and never forgot that 'being there' for another is better than any sermon. From that trip in , Andrew went on to visit all the other countries behind the 'Iron Curtain' -- including Russia -- and learned many lessons about Christ, Christianity, control and his fellow human beings which he shares in God's Smuggler. Political persecution isn't the enemy of faith; indifference is.
