Title: Out of the Far Corners

Author: Peter Iliyn

Rating: 5/5 stars

About the Book

The true story of a family that fled from the former Soviet Union into China. How God guided them and provided for them.

Review

Anyone who thinks that their life is too insignificant to matter to God will take great comfort from this book. It is the account of God’s hand on a small community from the former Soviet Union and on one man in particular. God repeatedly rescues Vanya from danger, provides for him, and shows His care just when he thought he was forgotten. And Vanya allowed God to mold his character and deepen his faith through it all. His legacy is the amazing family he now has, including his son Peter.

About the Book

The true story of a team of church planting missionaries in Mongolia in the 1990’s.

Review

There’s a Sheep in my Bathtub is a remarkable book. It tells the story of the small team of missionaries that God used to plant a dynamic indigenous church in Mongolia. In the course of a few years, Mongolia went from being a nation with hardly any Christians to a nation with its own church planting church. Brian tells the story with wisdom, humor, and transparency about the struggles and loss his own family experienced. The book is a must for anyone with any interest in church planting because it is one of the healthiest and most anointed examples that I have heard of—it will be a classic of missions history.
