M. J. Andre
By His grace, I have been apprehended, washed, cleansed by His blood, broken, shattered into millions of pieces then made whole and holy.

BiographyMy book is not about me but about the work that God is doing in me and through me. The most amazing thing you might be interested to know about me is that Acts 4:13 fits me like a glove. “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” As I explained in my book, because this verse described so well who I am in Him, I have the ministry of tears. My tears are not there because I am sad, but because my soul possesses the only Wonder in the world that truly matters. By His grace, my soul is kept in a state of constant awe at His feet. HE IS INDEED REAL!
InspirationThe preface in my book is a little bit long but tells you a lot about my inspiration. I felt, while we are blessed in North America to have countless Christian books and authors, what we lack are books that spell out this radical Christian life we are called to follow. While it is understandable that we cannot limit God and that the Holy Spirit works within us through different approaches, trials, intensities, and duration, we nevertheless go through the same preparation in the soul—the same narrow gate, the same kind of dark night of the soul, the same process to break our stiff necks and prepare us for intimacy with Him. So, while I found solace in reading the classics and Puritans books, I found my soul longing for fellowship—even if only through books—with people who were living this kind of life right here, right now, and in this century. I have no doubt that there are Christians in this century, very close by, who have experienced what I experienced. We lack twenty-first century Christian manuals from writers who are not afraid of being bold with a pen. Because they have been with Him, they are not afraid of being labeled, or criticized harshly due to the demands they put on their readers, or of being persecuted either. Let’s face it, most professing Christians today are not interested in hearing any message that goes beyond tickling their ears. As the Holy Spirit taught me, this kind of boldness is overdue in the times that we are living in now. We need to dismantle any excuses they might have. I personally have been through it, so I know with all my heart that a lot of Christians have no idea of the deeper Christian walk with God, largely because we are not being taught about it. If God had not gotten hold of me, then “I did not know” would have certainly been my excuse when I finally saw Him face to face. I can say with certainty that this book is not for the faint at heart and neither for those uninterested in changing their lives with God. Thus, the wilderness series is exactly that…it fills up a gap.
