by John Butterworth MBE




Enver Hoxha, Albania's dictator during the Communist era, proclaimed his country the world first atheist state. But Captain Berti Dosti, one of the elite communications team monitoring Albania's borders for American incursions, was leaving his country unguarded for 15 minutes a week as he tuned into Trans World Radio's broadcasts, ultimately becoming a believer. Had he been discovered he would probably have been shot. With churches destroyed and Christian leaders executed or jailed, post-Communist Albania with its Muslim heritage was tough ground for Christian mission. But Pastor Dosti helped to lead the new wave of church planting that has swept the country. Combining total integrity with social compassion, he and his colleagues have reached thousands: there is now a church in every major community.

I thought I knew about life in Communist Albania, but I learned a lot from this book. First part was somewhat slow reading, but eye opening. Last part was inspiring (and convicting) to read about how the fledgling Albanian church rallied to help those in need.

God's Secret Listener chronicles a behind-the-scenes look at Albanian society, Trans World Radio and European Christian Mission (ECM) reaching out to Albania, and the growth of the Albanian Protestant church over the last 30 years. Despite numerous historical descriptions, the story of Berti Dosti is engaging and insightful. The most fascinating part is seeing the story come right up to the present time of life in the Albanian church. Berti, first drawn to the Gospel by radio, continues to be active in using radio to tell a great truth.
