Book Description

21 Mar 2005

When the phenomenal success of God's Smuggler made it too dangerous for his contacts in the underground church, Brother Andrew decided he could not return to Eastern Europe. He quietly turned his attention the the Middle East, and for the last thirty-five years he has been serving the Christian Church there as well as witnessing to Jews and Muslims.

His impassioned message is that there is a radical Christian approach to the stalemate of Middle East conflict. Only the gospel of love has the answer, and Christians are called to allow God to use them to demonstrate the example of Jesus.

Light Force brings Brother Andrew's story right up to date. It is every bit as exciting as God's Smuggler, as Andrew has put his life on the line time and again in God's service. Light Force is a God's Smuggler for the 21st Century - this amazing man is once again unashamedly carrying the gospel where few dare to tread.

Product Description


The first book I ever read was God Smuggle by Brother Andrew. The impact of that book remains with me today. I'm sure that Light Force will have the same impact on many. An incredible story that teaches us much about love & faith, boldness and compassion. (Mike Pilavachi)

'It is imperative that Christians in the West seek understanding of the crisis in the Middle East. This amazing book explains and illustrates like no other the conflict - political and spiritual - and its devastating effect on human lives.'

'I know no one with more experience of the persecuted Church than Brother Andrew. This book is a passionate call for Christians to engage the issue of the Middle East.'

Steve Gaukroger

(Steve Gaukroger)

'This riveting page-turner goes behind the news stories of conflict in Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories, to the ideological and spiritual struggles that underlie them. Brother Andrew courageously stirs up the demoralised churches and Christian leaders caught up in the maelstrom, and dialogues with top representatives of the PLO and Hamas terrorist organisations, seeking to place Bibles in their hands and the true Gospel in their hearts.

'The result is a uniquely personal, moving, and provocative account of the ugly rise of militant Islam, suicide bombers, and the implacable hatred and fear on all sides of the conflict, yet it is full of empathy for all the victims, especially the suffering Palestinian Christians . It addresses the challenges facing God's people today, and is guaranteed to unsettle many entrenched positions as it points the way to true and lasting solutions, namely, a strong and vigorous Church bearing witness to a strong and powerful Saviour who alone can bring peace to the world'.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extremely important book 7 Nov 2005
By serena
I seriously recommend this book to anyone who like me watches the news and feels confused and hopeless about the Middle East. The political situation from around 1948 is explained clearly in a very readble way with witness accounts. This book is not a political book but rather the unfurling of a vision for peace in the midst of conflict. It is extremely exciting to catch this vision of love, reconciliation and forgiveness as you read and I feel my own heart is changing towards the whole situation. All that troubles me in the news today is transcended by the bigger picture you are given in this book. Go on read it - you won't regret it... this is a seriously important book for our times...

5.0 out of 5 stars Light Force 3 Jan 2011
Brother Andrew, who is famous for taking bibles into Eastern Europe when it was Communist and wrote 'God's Smuggler', has also done a lot of visit to the Middle East. This book recounts these visits and the people he met, Arabs, Palestinians and Jews. It shows the power of God's love and the difference that can be made by bringing His values to this troubled part of the world. An excellent read for anyone interested in the troubles of the Middle East, particularly concerning Israel and Palestine. Brother Andrew helps us to see a path through the polarised views that many hold regarding the peoples in this region, bringing God's heart of love and grace into the situation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening 1 July 2007
By The Old Wise Man - Published on
"Light Force" is a marvellous book documenting the struggle of Christianity in the crisis stricken country of Palestine. The reader is given a firsthand account of the troubles that face the population of this troubled state. The focus of this book is to enlighten the reader of the dire state of Christianity in this troubled country. The book follows the visits of Brother Andrew to Palestine as he assesses, and strengthens, the dwindling Christian congregation.
One achievement has succeeded in bring together people from the two feuding sides of Israel and Palestine, this is the project called "Musalaha". This was a unique project conceived by the local Jewish and Palestinian Christian community that made a real, and successful, effort to deal with the root causes of the conflict in the Middle East.
Amidst the bleak outlook of all the bloody conflicts, efforts like `Musahala' give hope to a very troubled area, and show that through the work of God, Christian ministries can make a difference.

This book is a very enjoyable and enlightening read, and it bolsters one's strength to see Gods work in action.
