Tell us about yourself!
This book was recommended to me and it surpassed my expectations. It was very interesting and gave me fresh appreciation for our religious freedom and the treasure a Bible is to its possessor.
The simple faith of Brother Andrew is so encouraging and uplifting! He is an example of the kind of Christian I want to be. One who loves. One who is for Jesus!
You can't go wrong when Simon Vance is the narrator. I highly recommend!
This book as written probably has great appeal for many people. For me, it brings back too many uncomfortable memories of a high pressure, control-based religious upbringing. Listening to the author's words about his calling to serve God, I felt that I was inadvertently eavesdropping on a matter that should be private. Clearly it's the author who made the choice to share his personal life and his spiritual conversion, so I don't feel like a voyeur. But I am not enjoying my listening experience. I am halfway through this book, and that's it for me. I'm sorry, in a way. The book is well written, and the narration is excellent. It's the topic that turned me off. I prefer to keep my relationship with God private. I don't care to delve too deeply into the spiritual space of another person.
Nope, not if it follows the same religious zeal theme.
I could listen to Simon Vance read the phone book, if phone books still exist. In fact, I purchased this audio book based on Simon Vance being the narrator. Even his wonderful skills couldn't keep me interested in this one.
Not movie or video material.
The religious/Bible smuggling theme doesn't necessarily ruin the story; it just didn't work for me.
I read this book in grade school and when I saw it on audible bought it for my children to listen to. I started listening to it and was so caught up in the story I could not stop. a true classic that is worth listening to again. new epilogue added in 2001 was very interesting.
A Work in Progress
Great story about God's opened doors and trusting in His plan. The progression of Andrew's faith and God's direction in his life was the most encouraging aspect of the book. God makes a way for His word to be spread and His people to be encouraged.
I read this book when I was in high school after I had heard about Bible smuggling.
it was every bit as great as I remember. really stirs my faith, to desire to trust God more deeply and fully with every day life and take the adventure He has called me to live as His son.
