Project Pearl was the delivery, in June 1981, of one million Bibles into China by a tugboat and barge manned by twenty dedicated missionaries. The delivery was soaked in prayer and took place right under the noses of the People's Liberation Army and the naval patrol boats and coastal radar of China's Guangdong Province. It was organised by Brother David, a big ex-Marine and friend of Brother Andrew ('God's Smuggler'). David's military training proved crucial in this audacious, visionary feat. His story is at the heart of this book. The immediate consequence of Project Pearl was that Chinese printing presses started to turn out Bibles too: the longer term consequence was to stoke the flames of the Chinese revival which are now so wonderfully evident.
Former US Marine and member of Open Doors, Brother David was the primary organiser of the audacious Bible-smuggling operation, Project Pearl, which successfully carried 1 m Bibles into China.|Paul Hattaway is an expert on the Chinese church and author of The Heavenly Man, the story of Brother Yun; Operation China, and many other books. Paul went on to set up Asia Harvest, a Christian ministry committed to see effective churches planted among unreached people groups throughout Asia.
