Perilous Journey: Memoir of a Bible Smuggler

Soon to be released on Amazon.

Perilous JourneyIn 1977, Christians in Romania are routinely jailed, tortured, and committed to mental institutions. Despite this, the church continues to meet in secret. Previous attempts to offer aid from Christians in the western world have failed.

Who can penetrate the Iron Curtain? Who will answer the fervent prayers of the persecuted church in Romania? Who will go?

In this true story, Deborah and her husband, young American Christians, accept a perilous mission to smuggle thousands of Bibles into Romania at the height of the Cold War. With no knowledge of the country or a map to guide them, they rely solely on God to lead them to one man living in the capital city.

They reach their destination only to find their contact is gone. Other arrangements have to be made — and quickly. In a country where the brutal secret police are everywhere and neighbors betray neighbors, whom can they trust? There is only one answer:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.— Proverbs 3:5-6
