Books on the Subway
Over 20 years ago in Russia, Stas and I, along with the Josh McDowell Ministry and hundreds of American volunteers, had the honor of planting seeds throughout the former Soviet Union.
The doors of Russia had just opened. For the first time the Soviet people were free to hear the Gospel and learn about God. In the day, we would stand by a Russian subway station, and open a box of Josh’s book More Than a Carpenter. We were swarmed with people wanting to know more about Christianity.
It was estimated that each book was read by at least 10 people.
The book shared the basics of the Christian faith, Josh’s testimony, the Gospel and contact information for the local Russian church. The Russian churches swelled.
