Summary

When he became God's smuggler, Brother Andrew (1928- ) was already familiar with risk. As a boy, the intrepid Andrew van der Bijl joined the Dutch Resistance against the Nazi occupation. As a young man, he fought eagerly in the Dutch East Indies - until the horror of war turned the adventure seeker to a life of alcohol and desperation. Redeemed by God, the Dutchman became a daring messenger of hope, smuggling Scripture through closed borders and equipping persecuted Christians behind the Iron Curtain. Today Brother Andrew and the ministry of Open Doors continue to shine the light of Christ in the world's darkest places.

“*The life of Brother Andrew*”

This is a truly inspiring story filled with history, loving god, and trusting god to make your life truly meaningful. Andrews life starts in the impression of boring, and same. But when natzis invade the small town whom he lived in his life beginning to change for the worse. After the war that lasted for years, he decides that he wants his trade to be a soldier, so there he was fighting in a war, but about half way through his war career the fighting and killing starts to impact him in more ways than one… can Andrew take back the life that he used to own? Or will god use this “useless” life and turn it for the better?……. This story tells the life of a strong Christian and his life in his own point of view…….






(Note from reader) the rest of my review has been serious but now let’s take some time, to think over this statement that andrews sister said to him… “Andrew… I know you’ve been through a lot.. but it’s hard not to be concerned about the time that you’ve been spending in your bedroom, it’s not healthy!” Now doesn’t that sound familiar… I SPEND AS MUCH TIME MAYBE EVEN MORE RESTING IN MY BED ON ELECTRONICS WHILE HES IN HIS ROOM READING HIS BIBLE!!!!! WHO WOULD YOU BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT? HUH!?! HUH!?!


Love, yours truly: Me”






P.S (I recommend this book to everyone. If you haven’t already, please ask Jesus for forgiveness.. ask him into your heart, at LEAST read a bible, then you can decide if you want to believe in him or not… thank you.)
