This book is a written by a chap who had a lot to do with the Yellow Pages in North America. He would visit potential advertisers – and they’d get a bit more than they bargained for. Mostly it’s testimony, but there are a few pointers on prayer, but not many. Entertaining reading, but not really a must-read.
Inspirational follow-up book to ‘God’s Smuggler’. Brother Andrew tells more about the work of Open Doors, but also how people can make a difference themselves. It’s a tremendously heartening book – Brother Andrew is convinced that it’s little people like us that change the world.
Another incredibly feelgood book, don’t be put off by the twee title. It’s a really good book. It’s inspiring, and shows that God only needs a little bit of obedience to get going. But don’t expect it to be easy. God accomplishes great things if only we’ll let him.
This is an interesting book, giving an insight into the beginnings and politics of Hamas, as well as focusing on the faith of this son of one of the Hamas founders. It’s an interesting insight, and clearly shows the bondage of those who identify themselves as Palestinian.
This is a compelling account of a woman who started her search by becoming a Buddhist, and then becoming a Buddhist nun for several years. She later became a Christian, and by the end of the book was working amongst Buddhists in Thailand. It’s a tremendously interesting and heart-warming book, and a testament to the enormous power of God – particularly when people are ignoring him.
Don’t judge a book by its cover, if you judge this one, you’ll think you’re reading one man’s account of how he nipped out for a pint of milk and ended up on Mars or something. No, this book is about the author’s missionary work in Spain, but more than that, it’s an interesting tour of what she was thinking and going through at the time. While she and her husband are busy developing a ministry to people who live in a cave village in Spain, she is also grappling with the difference between what her denomination says a missionary looks like/behaves like/is and what is the reality. You get an overwhelming sense that the missionary work isn’t just about the people she has gone to help, but also that God is using the experience in a major way to almost ‘de-church’ herself in order to become more useful to God and closer to him. She and her husband return to England, not because they’ve finished their work, but they realise that England is in dire need of spiritual input (it still is). She struggles with thought that maybe people will misunderstand the reason for their return, and later learns that her job is to do the right thing, not to look like she’s doing it.
