His Dutch name was Andrew van der Bijl, an evangelical who became the founder of Open Doors U.S.A. But on its website, the ministry described him this way:
"We often describe Brother Andrew as the founder of Open Doors. But referring to him as 'the founder' could lead people to picture him as a suit-wearing executive who delivers presentations in a boardroom. That image, however, couldn't be further from the truth. In actuality, Brother Andrew is our chief adventurer and lead risk taker. He's best known, in fact, for courageously putting his life on the line to smuggle Bibles behind the Iron Curtain at the height of the Cold War."
