A wonderful book that reveals what God can do in a faithful person who gives themselves totally to Him.

Brilliant biography

Superbly researched, written and read. Although clearly a big fan of Churchill, the author doesn't shy away from examining the faults of a remarkable individual.

An amazing operation by US authorities.

I enjoyed the story. It could have been improved by editing some of the money laundering encounters with BCCI. It got a bit bogged down at times. The narration was disappointing but overall I rate the book highly.

Riveting from start to finish. Wonderfully captured the human elements of all the characters. The research that went into this book really paid off. Very detailed but never got bogged down. A fantastic read.

I hope and pray that the examples of believers who live in persecution don't just wash over me. Their measure of faith will be amazing to anyone in the Western church. They are so much more like the early church than we are and they are truly inspirational.

Great story, very detailed.

I really enjoyed the first 3/4 of the book. The later missions (Apollo 15-17) weren't so much to my taste with a heavy emphasis on geology. I also wish there had been a few more lighter moments and humor. But all around a great story and performance.

An excellent account of remarkable women.

The role of some of the women in this book has largely gone unnoticed, yet their example to us should never be forgotten. I recommend this book.

A reminder that the reformation is still ongoing

A wonderful book that succinctly summarises the reformation and the sacrifices of those who boldly stood against the church and state. Not only does it look 500 years into the past, but it also examines the current situation between the prodestant and catholic movements. More than that, it clearly outlines why the Gospel is central to the differences that still exist and why Christ alone is our salvation.

Extremely well written and fantastic narration.

A thoroughly enjoyable book despite the difficult subject matter at times. A good dose of humour throughout and an amazing tale of courage, heroism and mateship.

Excellent book, but the narrator's delivery was dull and lifeless. Plenty of practical advice on why and how to set up a ministry of mercy.
