God’s Smuggler (audio)

Hovel Audio, 2008


As a boy he dreamed of being a spy—undercover behind enemy lines. As a man he found himself undercover for God. Brother Andrew was his name, and for decades his life story, recounted in God’s Smuggler, has awed and inspired millions. This bestseller tells of the young Dutch factory worker’s incredible efforts to transport Bibles across closed borders—and the miraculous ways in which God provided for him every step of the way.

This story is reintroduced in a thirty-fifth anniversary edition with a new foreword and afterword. Brother Andrew’s story remains as inspiring today as it was 35 years ago, and with this new release it will motivate a new generation to risk everything to follow God’s call.
