God's Smuggler - Brother Andrew

This book is pretty fun, a great read and a fairly fast one too. What I loved most is how Brother Andrew threw himself into so many situations where all he had was a prayer. He went to a Bible school without knowing the language fully, or even being accepted. But he got hooked up and began his studies. He's crossed numerous borders with Bibles in plain view of guards when their searching for them, and has gone through without a hitch. The man has crazy faith.
What else was cool was having the book start at his childhood, allowing us to see how God prepared him. He wasn't always as in tune with God, and it took some bullets and a beautiful woman to whip him into shape.

My criticism would be that it could be dangerous trying to extract theology or principles out of some of his personal convictions.
(you know what the coolest thing is? This book was standard reading for KGB operatives back in 70-80s).

I really liked this book...lots of good thoughts about what it means to live by the Spirit, take risk and follow hard after Christ.

This book is amazing...I recommend it to everyone to read. Brother Andrew trusted in God for everything and always knew God was there for him. So cool.
