As a boy, Brother Andrew dreamed of being an undercover spy working behind enemy lines. As a man he found himself working undercover for God. His was a mission filled with danger, financed by faith, supported by miracles.
Told it was impossible to minister behind the Iron Curtain, Andrew knew that nothing was too hard for God. Crossing "closed" borders, he prayed, "Lord, in my luggage I have Scripture I want to take to Your children. When You were on earth, You made blind eyes see. Now, I pray, make seeing eyes blind. Do not let the guards see those things You do not want them to see." And they never did.
For thirty-five years, Brother Andrew's life story has inspired millions to step out on their own journeys of faith. This young Dutch factory worker's near-incredible adventures testify of God's step-by-step guidance and hour-by-hour provision--available to all who follow His call.
Far from being over, Brother Andrew's current adventures are his most challenging yet. In a new prologue and epilogue, his story is carried into the new millennium with an account of Andrew's work in the "closed" societies of Islam.

Cammy MAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A little bit of something for everyone!May 4, 2012Cammy MAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I came upon this book about five years ago for school reading; actually it wasn't even my school reading, it was my sister's, but I, being an avid reader, read it also. From what I recall, I loved the book, but that was 5 years ago. When you get older sometimes you read or watch something you once loved and think â€˜why in the world did I ever like that' that was most definitely not the case for this book. I have just completed rereading God's Smuggler and again absolutely loved it start to finish. Most people would say at this point it was so good I couldn't put it down, however the characteristic for a good book to me is one I can put down. Why? I don't know, I guess that's just the way I roll.
That aside I will tell you a little of what "God's Smuggler" is about and what makes it such a good read.
God's Smuggler is about a Dutch man who we know as Brother Andrew. This book was published first in 1967, during a time when Brother Andrew was still very active behind the Iron Curtain. This is the reason his full name is not given and so many other names are kept secret. The 35th Anniversary Edition was published in 2001; the main difference is the extended epilogue telling of what has been going on in Brother Andrew's life since 1967.
We start off in the book at Brother Andrew's home town of Witte, Holland. There we find him as a young mischievous boy who longed for adventure. It was that longing for adventure that drove him even as a young adult, and eventually led him to Christ. Not all is easy for Brother Andrew he, loses and gets rejected by loved ones but he also finds friends in the most unexpected places. Most of all he learns what faith in God can do. If we are in God's will, He will make a way even if all odds seem against us.
In so many biographies a person cannot relate to the character, as they were people from so long ago or sometimes the books display them as faultless. Brother Andrew of "God's Smuggler" is neither of these. Brother Andrew's work is still going on today, and he is displayed for who he truly is an imperfect human being. He goes through the same pain, and the same numbness and wondering "what in the world does God want me to do now" as everyone does. This is why when he was sad I felt sad, when something good happened in the story I felt excited.
I would recommend this book to anyone. If you are looking for humor, adventure, encouragement and, yes, even a little romance, you will find it in "God's Smuggler". Even if you're not looking for any of those things and just want, or even need to read a missionary biography, this is the one to read.
RyanAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Life ChangerApril 24, 2012RyanAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A truly remarkable book. A story about a man who knew no fear, only the fear of the LORD. This book has opened my eyes to many things. One, it has made me appreciate the blessings of America. The little things we take for granted such as opening a bible in public, praying in public real quick, sharing the good news, etc. Also, this book has opened my eyes to the persecution of brothers and sister across the world and has motivated me to pray for them. Finally, it is a thriller/adventure book. I believe this is a MUST read for Christians.

Q: catholic book or christian book? I'm a bit hesitant to read this book because I've seen many books that try to pass under the "Christian" category. I'm just a bit skeptical as to why his whole name wasn't printed out. Why does it just say 'Brother Andrew' I'm sure he had a last name.
Brother Andrew was a protestant pastor. During the cold war period, he worked to smuggle many Bibles in communist eastern block countries. He used the name Bother Andrew to help him remain anonymous, so he could continue his efforts.
