If you don't believe in a God who is active in this world you won't like it you will have to dismiss it as delusional at best or active fraud at worst. The question I would ask those who dismiss it, how has he personally gained?
To the believer it is a great encouragement. It is in the pantheon of great testimonial books with Cross and the Switchblade, by David Wilkerson, Run, Baby, Run by Nicky Cruz, The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom and Jackie Pullinger, Chasing the Dragon.
We've had follow-up discussions about Communism, about evangelism, about refugees and hardships and propaganda, and all kinds of spin-off topics. But above all, we have seen through Brother Andrew that God is good, is reliable, is a provider, and speaks to people in the modern era in all kinds of different ways.
Trusting Him not only works for Brother Andrew, but worked for hundreds of thousands who were touched by his ministry.
(I understand the subsequent books of Brother Andrew's are more graphic and perhaps a bit too hard-bitten for reading with children; I have no reservations of reading this one to my children)
See how much fire and passion he and other Christians had. We read of a publication “Kracht van Ophoog” - Dutch for “Power from On High.”
How we need a fresh outpouring of Holy Spirit.
Read, be encouraged and challenged
Then rise to that challenge with Power from On High. 100% recommended!!!
