March 2010 Book Selection

God's Smuggler by Brother Andrew with John and Elizabeth Sherrill is going to be our book club selection for March. This book is non-fiction based on the real life story of Brother Andrew and is 255 pages. Here is what is on the back of the book:

As a boy, Brother Andrew dreamed of being an undercover spy working behind enemy lines. As a man he found himself working undercover for God. His was a mission filled with danger, financed by faith, supported by miracles. Told it was impossible to minister behind the Iron Curtain, Andrew knew that nothing was too hard for God. Crossing "closed" borders, he prayed, "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. For thirty-five years, Brother Andrew's life story has inspired millions to step out on their own journeys of faith. This young Dutch factory worker's near-incredible adventures testify of God's step-by-step guidance and hour-by-hour provision-available to all who follow His call. Far from being over, Brother Andrew's current adventures are his most challenging yet. In a new prologue and epilogue, his story is carried into the new millennium with an account of Andrew's work in the "closed" societies of Islam.(end quote)

I had a friend of mine recommend this book to me a couple of years ago and so I added it to my reading list. Then one day while browsing in the $5 christian bookstore at the Tanger Outlet, there it was and only $5! I picked it up and really enjoyed reading it. Those of you that read with us last year I want to let you know a good comparison for this type of story would have been last year's selection The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom which also was written with John and Elizabeth Sherrill. If you want you can try the $5 book store but like I said it has been a long time since I got my book there. Our March meeting will be in Swift's new annex at 8:30 AM on March 27th. Please let me know if you have any questions.

**Don't forget the February meeting is coming up soon on February 27th at 8:30 am in Swift's new building. Feel free to bring your friends and family! I will be providing a traditional Guernsey dish to have with Coffee and some pictures of the island to share as well and maybe even a guest to participate in our discussion who's family originated in Guernsey. You don't want to miss it!****

And don't forget, any book suggestions are always appreciated as well!

Happy Reading!
