It's a classic. It's one of those books that are worth reading again and again.

If you don't believe in a God who is active in this world you won't like it you will have to dismiss it as delusional at best or active fraud at worst. The question I would ask those who dismiss it, how has he personally gained?

To the believer it is a great encouragement. It is in the pantheon of great testimonial books with Cross and the Switchblade, by David Wilkerson, Run, Baby, Run by Nicky Cruz, The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom and Jackie Pullinger, Chasing the Dragon.

My daughter (who's 11) and I are thoroughly enjoying this book as our one-on-one bedtime reading. We are so inspired by the story of Brother Andrew's early life, how he came to love and trust Christ, and how he moved amongst all the persecuted believers behind the Iron Curtain in the 50s.

We've had follow-up discussions about Communism, about evangelism, about refugees and hardships and propaganda, and all kinds of spin-off topics. But above all, we have seen through Brother Andrew that God is good, is reliable, is a provider, and speaks to people in the modern era in all kinds of different ways.

Trusting Him not only works for Brother Andrew, but worked for hundreds of thousands who were touched by his ministry.

(I understand the subsequent books of Brother Andrew's are more graphic and perhaps a bit too hard-bitten for reading with children; I have no reservations of reading this one to my children)

Amazing story of a real life adventure and how God not only transformed brother Andrew but gave him a purpose. One of the main themes throughout the book is Andrews faith that God would provide a way, usually where it seemed impossible. There are lots of humbling stories of a man living by faith through trusting in a God who loves and provides for him as he spreads the good news if Jesus to many unreached places. One of my favourite quotes is a friends advice to him;
"Time and place are our own limitations, Andy; we mustn’t impose them upon God."

This book has been around for a long time, but some stories never lose their appeal or their challenge. Like all good stories, it is about redemption, and so much more! Brother Andrew is changed from a drunken soldier in a losing war to a true warrior for truth as he smuggles Bibles through the iron curtain to Christians who are desperate for the word that changes lives. Astonishing testimony to the God of the unexpected and the extraordinary, and there is a bitter-sweet romance as a bonus!

Brilliant. If like me you had some weird miracle suddenly transform you from a lifelong atheist/agnostic to a knowledge of the existence of God, then this book gives some very practical examples of how to learn how to use faith and understand God's power in your everyday life in a way that produces tangible results.

I thought God’s Smuggler was an inspiring and thrilling tale of one man’s truly awesome faith and mission, which also made for a wonderful discussion piece at my book club meeting.

This book it a fantastic witness to how God can change the hearts of anyone! A very moving true story of Brother Andrew who the Lord looked after and in return, Brother Andrew was able to do the most amazing things in the name of the Lord. I strongly recommend this book to anyone going through a spiritual battle or just want a good book to read....it will lift your spirits by the end of it :-)

Not only is the story of Brother Andrew impossible to put down and very well written, but it is a real inspiration and challenge to those seeking to live for God, or those who doubt the existence of God. Andrew grew up in Holland during world war 2 and afterward joined the army. This sparked a series of events which led him to question the value of life and become a committed Christian. Starting with small trips here and there Andrew ended up risking his life time and again to share the Gospel and take Bibles beyond the Iron Curtain, setting up an international organisation which at one point smuggled 1 million Bibles into China! Time and again God led Andrew and his colleagues through impossible situations, allowing forgotten Christians to feel the love of the body of Christ and to savour God's word.
