A big thank you to my friend Ruth for giving this book to me.
As I began reading The Narrow Road, I was struck by how familiar the story was. Then I looked at the copyright page and learned that it was the book God’s Smuggler in a new format. I read this book when I was in high school, and it moved me deeply. Now the authors have added in stories of Christians all over the world suffering for their faith or helping those who suffer. These stories are presented as sidebars along with Brother Andrew’s story.
The main text tells of how Brother Andrew came to Christ and was led to minister to the suffering church behind the Iron Curtain and bring Bibles to them. He trusted God to meet his needs, and God met those needs abundantly, over and over again. He tells how the ministry grew, until today his organization reaches out to suffering Christians in very different places from where he started.
This was always an inspiring book. The modern stories that have been added make it even more challenging.
