This biography is both thrilling and nearly unbelievable, yet true.

A wonderful book. One I'm thankful I read. There is not a dull page in the text start to finish.

This classic story has 10 million copies in 35 languages for a reason. Everyone knows Brother Andrew; a factory worker, the son of the village blacksmith in Holland; a man who dreamed of being an undercover spy working behind enemy lines. As a child, during WW2, when his family was so poor they had to eat tulip bulbs, he would make mischief for the occupying Nazis.
After the war, he went on a mission for God, crossing the "closed" borders of the Iron Curtain, bringing contraband: Bibles.
He would pray, "Lord, in my luggage I have Scripture I want to take to Your children. When you were on earth, You made blind eyes see. Now, I pray, make seeing eyes blind. Do not let the guards see those things You do not want them to see." And they never did.
He started the ministry, Open Doors, and now provides Bibles for the "closed" societies of Islam. The Word of God is not bound.
