    Under Their Very Eyes

    The Astonishing Life of Tom Hamblin, Bible Courier to Arab Nations

    Tens of thousands of Bibles have been carried into the Arabian Peninsula, finding a clandestine network of believers

    From a brutal and impoverished background in Reading, England, Tom Hamblin became a believer as a teenager before serving as a missionary in the Far East. He and his wife, Edna, spent more than a decade leading expeditions into the heart of Borneo.

    Gradually they became convinced that the Lord was calling them to minister in the Arabian Peninsula: in particular, to carry in thousands of Bibles in Arabic, Farsi, and Urdu. They conveyed shipment after shipment into this region, never losing a copy and surmounting all restrictions. Customs guards turned a blind eye. Tom distributed Bibles very simply: walking around with a bag and waiting for people to ask him what he was doing.

    The Islamic world is widely regarded as closed to the gospel, but this is simply untrue. Tom discovered an extensive network of believers—very few churches but many clandestine meetings for worship—and a huge hunger for the truth.

    Under Their Very Eyes is the remarkable biography of a Bible courier to the Arab world that will stir the reader's spirit.
