Item description for My Beloved Russia: A Story of God's Love for a Persecuted People by Irene Howat & Dimitry Mustafin...

Overview
Whatever an atheistic state plans, a higher power breaks the chains. Dimitry Mustafin, a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry in Moscow, was given permission by the Soviet Government to work for a year in Italy - although his wife and daughter were not allowed to go in case they all defected. Dimitry became a Christian in Milan. When he told his mother of his conversion, he learned for the first time that his grandfather had been martyred for his faith. Defection was far from his mind; instead he longed to take the gospel to his Motherland. He left Russia a Lieutenant in the Soviet Chemical Defense Army and returned... a Bible Smuggler! Since then, Dimitry has spent his time distributing Bibles in Moscow and other parts of Russia - and sharing his faith in every way possible. Gideons International heard of what he and others in his congregation were doing, and they now supply Scriptures, not secretly, one at a time, but by the lorry-load. Because of his family history, Dimitry has a deep concern for prisoners and orphan children, who also often end up in prison. He visited one of the largest prisons so often that the governor invited him to a staff meeting! It was there he was introduced to a retired executioner ... who worked in the prisons at the time his grandfather was killed. Such encounters do not make for easy evangelism, yet Dimitry was able to pray with him and lead him to the Savior. Dimitry tells his story with heart-rending honesty. You will never forget his story.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Beloved Russia?

Inspiring   Mar 31, 2008
It is impossible to read this kind of book and not be inspired. It would be especially good reading material for a teenager, or good read-aloud for young family members as the story is told in a straightforward and unprententious manner. Highly recommended.

 
An Enjoyable Biography  Aug 27, 2006
I remember praying for the Christian men and women who lived in the Soviet Union. During the Cold War we knew that countless Christians lived on the far side of the Iron Curtain and that they suffered immeasurably for their faith. We knew they needed prayer that God would sustain them and allow the faith to spread despite vigorous persecution. I remember hearing Brother Andrew speak at a nearby church and rejoiced to hear the incredible stories he shared of God's faithfulness in providing Scriptures for the Russian church. I remember lists of Russian believers known to be suffering in prisons for their faith. It is a stark reminder of what seems like a different world.

God was good to answer the countless prayers of generations of Christians, for He preserved His church in Russia. Dmitry Mustafin is one of those answers to prayer and My Beloved Russia tells the story of his life. The son of a brilliant scientist, Mustafin followed in his father's footsteps and pursued a career in science. This book describes his early days, growing up in a Communist regime. He describes his passion for his country and his love for Russia's national heroes. He seemed to have a prolific career ahead of him. As a highly-regarded scientist, he was given the privilege of studying abroad and was sent by the Soviet Government to Italy to spend a year working there. And this is where his life changed, for it was here that he encountered an American missionary who shared the gospel with him. God graciously and radically saved him and sent him home as a Bible smuggler.

As the Iron Curtain fell, Mustafin emerged as leader of a branch of the Gideons. He has since been privileged to distribute thousands of Bibles. While he maintains a career as a scientist and professor, his passion is in bringing the Bible to his people. As Gideons do so well, he provides Bibles to hospitals, prisons, orphanages and schools. He has led multitudes to Christ, praying with them as their last days draw to a close in hospitals or even in prison's Death Row.

Written in an almost boyish fashion that seems consistent with a person who speaks English as a second language, My Beloved Russia is a story of God's faithfulness. It is told with humility, always giving glory to God and reflecting on his providence. It is always inspiring to hear of God's goodness and of His answers to prayer.
