an inspiring, awesome, concise read, warmly commended across cultures, genders and generations. English Churchman To win the Ultimate Christian Library award, a book must grab the average non-Christian reader at first sight. This year's winner, Andrew White's, does this and more, gripping the reader from its very first word. -- D Margaret Keeling Librarians' Christian Fellowship 'This is a very moving book which shows how this man give his life to God through faith, determination and courage whilst suffering from multiple sclerosis. Definitely worth reading.' -- Barbara Gardner The Lance

This book is overwhelming! It is a short, easy to read account of the experiences of Andrew White, the Vicar of Baghdad Iraq. It really reads like a modern version of the book of Acts. This is is third book about his experiences there. Andrew White runs an Anglican church in downtown Baghdad. That is Baghdad Iraq, not Baghdad Alabama. Already you can imagine his challenges. I was fortunate to see him speak once. He really speaks through the book. It makes you feel like you have talked to him.

If your idea of God is something to criticize at the cocktail party or a warm feeling you have when you drink your latte while shopping at your mega church you need to read this. The book will open up your eyes. You will see God is very real and at work in world. He is more than the trials of finding the right Sunday football game on TV or the right parking spot at the mega church. We aren't in tune with God like Andrew is so we miss seeing God at work. I hope thousands of people get the chance to read this book. It will change your definition of God. God is more than an abstract thought or warm feelings. This book of stories about Andrew White shows that.

The book explains who Andrew White is. You learn how he got involved in the ministry and how he got into Iraq. His stories in this book sort of pick up from his previous book "Vicar of Baghdad". His antidotes of operations in incredible adversity reveals something. They reveal various acts of God.

These stories are just as incredible as Paul and Peter's adventures detailed by Luke in the book of Acts. For example his operation needs $175,000 a month to operate. Somehow God provides and the money comes in. Scores of people in Andrew's church have been killed for their faith.

I received this book from my son for Christmas and in 24 hours I had devoured it. I couldn't put it down. It's one of the most fascinating, thought-provoking, faith-building, and inspiring books I've read. It made me hunger more for God's presence, perspective, and perseverance as we walk through this broken world.

I highly recommend this book for anyone willing to pause and ask about God's relevance, power, love, and direction for their own life.

Faith Under Fire is a personal account of Andrew White's experiences as the vicar at St. George's Church in Baghdad, Iraq. It is an inspirational testimony of Andrew White, whose faith and knowledge of God has grown during his time there. His story is a frank and exciting read for anyone interested in the inner workings of a church facing persecution, the effects of conflicts in Iraq on daily lifestyle, or a bold exhortation for Christians to follow and trust God come what may.

Vicar White's main argument in Faith Under Fire is that God's presence is strong at work in Iraq, both despite and because of the challenges of living amidst violent persecution. His eyewitness account and relationships with local Iraqis build a story that reinforces his faith in God's power.

As a doctor, Vicar White's medical background allows him to recognize the immediate physical needs of his congregation when he opens a clinic in St. George's Church. Mentors are another strong influence in Vicar White's life. Several times, he quotes the Archbishop of Canterbury in what had become a life motto for him: "Don't take care, take risks." (15) By far, the most influential source in Vicar White's life and writing is the Bible. When he is kidnapped, or a child dies despite much prayer, or he sees wanted posters with his picture all over the city, Vicar White goes back to Scripture to seek God's peace and answers.

The organization of the book is very deliberate and reveals the author's values. Chapters 1 and 2 are devoted to demonstrating Vicar White's journey, from medical and theological training to getting married, and a great shift in the story when he discovers he is very ill.

Details in this book speak for themselves - and cannot but help speak to each reader. Any one of the many specific observations made by Vicar White may trigger self-analysis: what have the experiences I have endured in life prepared me for? This book is desperately needed and would be worth reading together in every youth and adult sunday school class, in every home family group. This is happening as we read - Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done. Thank you Vicar, for taking the time to share.

I know that there is so much more in our relationship with The Lord that we choose not to accept but Brother Andrew White has seen what The Lord will do for those who put their faith in him.
I gave it four stars because of the honest way the story is presented, it is reality at it's worst and there is real relation with the Lord that is expressed so well.

Excellent book. Great testimony of a man who surrendered his will for a cause greater than himself. I was deeply moved by his story.
