God's Smuggler

My mom introduced me to an amazing book, God's Smuggler, on our drive to Bismarck, ND (learn more about our trip here). The 14 hour round trip in the car flew by because we were both so entranced with this book. The first third of the book explains the early life of Andrew, a young poor boy from Holland during WWII. The remaining part of the story tells about his incredible decision to continually follow Christ in a way that may leave you speechless. There were countless times that my mom and I were shaking our heads in shock and awe. It is a deep story but very easy to read! It may even help you take a step back and make you think about what's important in this life...


As a boy, he dreamed of being a spy undercover behind enemy lines. As a man, he found himself undercover for God. Brother Andrew was his name and for decades his life story, recounted in God's Smuggler, has awed and inspired millions. The bestseller tells of the young Dutch factory worker's incredible efforts to transport Bibles across closed borders of communist countries 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 thirty-five years ago, and motivates a whole new generation to risk everything to follow God's call.
