Publisher's Summary

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

Told it was impossible to minister behind the Iron Curtain, Andrew knew that nothing was too hard for God. "Lord," he prayed, "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.

©1967 Brother Andrew with John and Elizabeth Sherrill; (P)1998 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Robert Whitfield does a splendid job reading this 'adventure.' His soft English accent brings out much of the author's humility, and wonder, in this journey." (AudioFile)
"Tension builds page by page in this remarkable true document...more thrilling than a spy story with its numerous near escapes and mounting climaxes of danger." (Los Angeles Times)

    "Tremendous story."

    This well-told bio adventure is definitely worth the listen. Fascinating insight into WWII, the rise of Communism, and the amazing lengths God goes to for His children.

    "Fantastic Biography of a Ministry"

    I wasn't disappointed when I took a chance on this one (Amazon reviewers really seemed to liked it). Although mine was read by Simon Vance (extraordinary British reader). A must hear along with G.K. Chesterton's biography of St. Francis of Assisi.

    Story
    "God's Hands and Feet . . . Brother Andrew"

    This is a beautiful, humbling account of Brother Andrew, a young Dutch factory worker . . . how he, himself came to Christ while recovering from being wounded in the Dutch Army in Indonesia after WWII, deeply depressed, being cared for by Franciscan nuns, Andrew finally asked the sisters caring for him where they found such joy . . . and there his own journey began, reading the Bible, accepting Christ and learning day by day to let God show him how to trust that He could provide what was needed in His ministry behind the Iron Curtain . . . the story includes his childhood antics of hitting his brothers over the head with his wooden shoes (breaking them once, to his father's ire) and the joys and hardships of growing up one of ten children of an invalid mother and an almost deaf blacksmith . . . not quite fitting into the mold his earthly father had cast for him, Andrew had no desire to follow in his father's footsteps as a blacksmith . . . or to take up any of the other local trades that his brothers had chosen . . . after the war, however, his wounded ankle prevented him from doing many things, and at first he could only get around by using a bicycle . . . finally strong enough to work, he began work at a chocolate factory, where mostly women worked, and foul mouthed women they were . . . yet God began using Andrew there . . . this book is a blessing and a testament to what one man's obedience to the calling of Christ can accomplish . . . there are no coincidences . . . this book is a much needed listen for the Christians of today who have gotten so busy, with lives so full that they may have began to think it is of their own doing . . . stop, stand still, be quiet . . . we are free in America to worship, to love our God . . . because our forefathers died and risked it all for that freedom. . . and we have brothers and sisters in Christ across the world who still hunger for the word of God in nations that have banned the Bible . . . let us all pray and support our missionaries financially to get the Word to them . . .

    Story
    "A Joy to read"
    What did you love best about God's Smuggler?

    God's smuggler is a story of Brother Andrew who, despite the risks to his life and freedom, smuggled Bibles into the Iron Curtain countries. But it's so much more than that! I love the complete dependence on God providing everything Brother Andrew needed in his work. Money would just appear. Br. Andrew's faith was incredible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This gave me a real lift when I needed it. Christmas is coming and I have been too busy to really think about what it means. This reconnected me to God.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Whitfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't, but he was good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    JOY!!!
