It was while singing to members of underground churches in China and Vietnam that Jars of Clay first realized the global impact of these words. "This Road," a song about the body of Christ, was originally written for Christians in the United States. But during their visit overseas, Jars of Clay realized the community of worshipers is so much larger than that! We are one body, with many parts-including brothers and sisters around the world who are daily threatened with imprisonment, beatings, even death, for their faith in Jesus Christ. The band now sees the song as an anthem of support for Christians everywhere, making it a perfect fit for the stories found in THE NARROW ROAD. A multimedia CD of "This Road," with footage of Jars of Clay's trip, is included in the book along with a foreword by the band.
The central story of THE NARROW ROAD is the complete text of Brother Andrew's autobiography GOD'S SMUGGLER. Since 1955, this remarkable man has risked his life to help persecuted Christians by smuggling Bibles into countries where owning or distributing them is strictly forbidden. His story, packed with dangerous adventures and amazing turns, testifies to the miraculous ways God provides for those who risk it all.
Journey also into places still hostile to Christians-with profiles on courageous champions of the faith. Meet teens and others across the globe who, like the believers Jars of Clay visited, are mercilessly persecuted for their faith in Christ. Their stories, along with Brother Andrew's, will forever change the way you walk the narrow road....Continua
