EDIT I realized a while ago that the book I loved was actually called God s Smuggler, and this edition is what is called The Narrow Road I did not actually like this edition I found the added stories annoying and distracting But I m leaving my review here in case others, like me, come across Brother Andrew s story in this version.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 v [...]
The Narrow Road by well known Christian missionary, Brother Andrew is essentially the story of his adventures behind the Iron Curtain helping persecuted churches during the Cold War , as told in his classic book, God Smuggler It includes additional information like profiles about countries with persecuted Christians, short stories from persecuted Christians and stories from missionaries to some of those countries This extra information could be distracting to some readers, I just read those sect [...]
The format of the book was pretty annoying, and I gave up reading the interspersed random stories and snippets that interrupted the main text.But the life of Brother Andrew is amazing.
This book was given to me by a family member shortly after it was published, and it sat on my shelf for fifteen years What a pleasant surprise I found beneath an unappealing cover identifying the book with the band Jars of Clay I found the meat of the material, Brother Andrew s 50 year old autobiography properly titled God s Smuggler, to be compelling and inspiring Mini stories are scattered throughout the book the reader can engage with them or not they distract from the main narrative of Andre [...]
Wonderful story Great read with uplifting and hopeful message in a stressful uncertain time with insight into a time period that is often overlooked.
This was a great read There is so much adventure in this book I felt like all the places that the author talked about going that I now have to go myself Yugoslavia, Belgrade, Albania, etc It is very inspiring Definitely a must read for anyone interested in mission work and Communism.My criticism is about the format of the book There were a lot of added stories A Traveler s Story, Diary of a Smuggler, etc that were really distracting from the main story They were almost as annoying commercials so [...]
This book was, by far, one of the best I ve read An amazing story of God s goodness and power, The Narrow Road will definitely keep you turning pages I could barely put it down as I read about mission after mission that Brother Andrew went on in different countries Amazing how the Lord made seeing eyes blind in order to conceal hundreds of Bibles in the car, or how God provided even just a lowered price on laundry detergent to prove His love for Andrew Truly an amazing and inspiring book and I h [...]
This book is about Brother Andrew, the author of God Smugglers It is an amazing book Is has many stories from around the world about the persecution of the church and really reminds us of what we American Christians so easily forget, that standing for your belief in Christ may cost your your life I loved the story of Brother Andrew s life and how God work in it as he become a preacher These are stories that inspire and challenge you It is a very easy read and a great book.
Never give up God is amazing and if you are faithful, the Lord will give you what you need to fulfill that mission, whether that is friendship, favor, and or a spouse Brother Andrew was bold and brave to smuggle bibles into place where the Word was scarce If we all can be that bold and trust the Lord as this man did, we would all be making a huge difference in our cities.
I have to be honest i didn t read all of it Amid the main story was many short less than a page stories that I did not read All in all its is an incredible example of God s miracles and love for his children Now, time to reflect and see how I can apply it to my life.
I love it when a book effects a change in my own life for the better This book did that.Just little things, but it added to my perception of what one person can achieve in God s will I absolutely love the Jars of Clay song too
Brother Andrew begins by being honest about his wayward youth And then details his life of service This is a version of the book God s Smuggler written for youth, but anyone will enjoy it Brother Andrew smuggled Bibles into other countries.
While our kids were growing up we read the story of Brother Andrew twice The second time through we used this edition probably in the early 2000 s while we were traveling pilgriming up and down the east coast of the States.
One of my favorite missionary bookshe s got story after story of how God comes through his trust and faith that God would come through on every aspect of his life, finances, direction, purpose, even love, should be an example of how one should live.
I read this book while in college It s a remarkable story that is filled with side stories of amazing people who were persecuted for their faith Great read
This book made me cry It s terrifying yet beautiful, and made me realize just how blessed my life is Amazing Really makes you think about life.
This is a slightly milder version of Brother Andrew s original autobiography God s Smuggler Just as exciting, inspiring, and engaging, with a slightly cautious approach.
I couldn t put it down
Brother Andrew is an intrepid lover of Christ His commitment to his chosen ministry is humbling Read this book
Not the best of storytellers, however, Brother Andrew s story comes through loud and clear And it s one worth reading.
great reminder of the cost of faith and love.
I really thought that this book was an astounding look at what God can do It really shows how much we can trust our Lord.
