What happens when you drop an American family with three small children into the post-Communist chaos of outer Mongolia?
There's a Sheep in My Bathtub chronicles the adventures of the Hogan family as they try to follow God's leading into one of the world's most remote and mysterious enclaves. Disarmingly honest and charmingly humorous, their tale will thrill you and bring tears to your eyes. An intensely personal memoir, this book still manages to pack a powerful dose of missionary insight and biblical principles for seeing the Church explode into life among peoples that have never even heard of Jesus. Get comfortable. You will not be able to stop listening.

The story itself is fascinating, heartwarming, miraculous, and authentically personal. Getting to hear it read by the author himself amplifies all these qualities. Brian writes in a way that makes you feel as if you're traveling with him to Mongolia when it was barely starting to open up.
Also, his detailed accounts of his experiences in planting a church, which range from amazing miracles to great sorrow, boosted my faith in new ways. I was so encouraged by what God had done for Brian and also for others in Mongolia.
I enjoyed hearing about the funny things that happened as they often do in cross-cultural experiences. Brian is quite the storyteller — I'm sure there are plenty more stories up his sleeve, and I hope to get to hear more!
Brian Hogan does an incredible job recounting his story in Mongolia. Through tears of sadness and joy, and with much laughter, Brian takes us on a whirlwind adventure giving an outsiders inside view at how God birthed many new children of the Kingdom in Mongolia. This sure to be a classic story told in homes around the world for many years to come.

Thousands of lives have been changed for the better by this story-those who have heard it and those who lived it. Brian is a popular speaker in the missions community, but his story is thrilling for people of all ages and vocations. The Book of Acts comes alive in the present day as this family of Jesus Followers arrives in a land that time -and most of the world- forgot. I have the paperback edition, and I'm delighted to hear Brian read it for me. His passion for his story and for the people of Mongolia shines through.
The book is fun to read, has a lot of insight and is still exciting.
The book challenged me to be bold and try new things for the glory of God.
If you love to listen to stories from the mission field I recommend this book. It will give you precious insight and show you one more time how wonderful and powerful God is.
