The God's Secret Listener
Full Product Description
Berti Dosti was an Albanian army captain who had heard about Jesus on a radio broadcast. As part of Albania's superior communications team that monitored Albania's borders for potential invasions, Berti risked leaving his country exposed and unguarded for 1/4 hour per week as he tuned into the radio broadcasts that would eventually convert him. Dosti was risking his life by listening to these broadcasts, but he was so inspired by the words of Christ that he was willing to take this chance.
Post-Communist Albania was an uncompromising and unfriendly host to Christian missionaries. Churches were destroyed and Christian evangelists were executed or jailed. Once Berti Dosti had been converted, he pioneered a church planting scheme that swept the country. His influence upon the country has become an incredible legacy, with every community now being privileged by a church's presence.

God's Secret ListenerDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
Having read so many books that turned out to be far less than promised, it’s a pleasant surprise to read one that is just the opposite! Far more than a biography of Berti Dosti, the courageous man of the title, here is a full account of Trans World Radio’s broadcasts into the closed communist State of Albania, their reception (in both senses of the word) and the result in terms of the Kingdom. It’s an interesting read, but suffers from being ‘hung’ on the hook of Mr Dosti. Almost every character receives a potted biography on introduction, and this leads to the title character’s story, begun in the first paragraph, not being resumed until page 75 – and then only briefly, which makes for somewhat disjointed reading and a great temptation to jump ahead or skim. Despite this, the story rises above the limitations of the format and delivers an uplifting and encouraging account of what God can do in humanly the most hopeless of situations, and the chain of ordinary people who link together – often unknowingly – to become extraordinary in His service.
