Intrepid Bible Messengers moved thousands of Bibles and Christian books into communist lands during the Cold War Years.The danger? Chilling. Border guards with a finger on the trigger of the AK-74 automatic killing machine. Snarling guard dogs threatened as the Messengers waited for hours to cross with their hidden load of those "hated" Bibles. Clariss captures all the drama in these revealing, sometimes shocking interviews never before published.
Clariss Brubaker Smith shared the humor and tears of these brave, modern day Bible transporters. Valiant believers had their own startling comments:
Even if I go to prison or die, don't stop bringing Bibles. The border guard fingered his gun and my friend began to shake. God sent someone to warn them. It might have been an angel. What? Sleep in this mud house with five adults, two children, six geese, two scruffy dogs and 20 hens?
These gripping, real-life stories show the courage and heroism of western Bible Messengers and the faith of the believers in the USSR and Eastern Europe during the Cold War."
