Gang-fighters! Drug addicts. Teenage runaways and prostitutes! The toughest and most hopeless kids that New York's ghettos had to offer. Then a young preacher from the Pennsylvania hills arrived on their turf and began preaching a message of renewal, miracles, and God's love. This is one of the century's great true stories. Over 14 million copies in print!

This best seller tells of the young Dutch factory worker's incredible efforts to transport Bibles across closed borders - and the miraculous ways in which God provided for him every step of the way. Brother Andrew's story remains as inspiring today as it was 35 years ago, and with this new release, it will motivate a whole new generation to risk everything to follow God's call.

After twenty years it's great to listen to the book again
It has been nearly twenty years since I travelled to China with Brother Andrew's Open Doors to smuggle Bibles into mainland China
An experience that I will never forget The Lord Jesus is so generous

Having read this book before I had pre conceived ideas but being able to just sit there and listen the words became real and the sound effects and music made it a compelling book

A naive young man, a railway enthusiast and radio buff, was caught up in the fall of the British Empire at Singapore in 1942. He was put to work on the 'Railway of Death' - the Japanese line from Thailand to Burma. Exhaustively and brutally tortured by the Japanese for making a crude radio, Lomax was emotionally ruined by his experiences.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Railway Man to be better than the print version?

Yes due to sight problems it's easier

What did you like best about this story?

Kept me wanting to read on and on

What about Bill Paterson’s performance did you like?

We'll read and being Scotish made it more realistic

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me really think about the subject as well as forgiveness

Any additional comments?

I will now watch the film. An exceptional true story
