Reviews - What do customers think about A Question of Yams: A Missionary Story Based on True Events?
It's good. It's really, really good! Apr 7, 2000
It's actually a children's book but I feel like a kid anyway, so hey. I think kids (ages 6-7) would really enjoy this story, and come away inspired by simple faith in a mighty God. My favorite thing is how the author expresses the important ideas in this story so skillfully and yet so simply. It's not a dramatic "miracle" story, it's just a story of trust and genuine friendship with God -- the rest and peace that comes from knowing that He is in control and has our best good in mind, and the influence that such obvious peace has on those around us. I can tell the author has a good understanding of the people of Papua New Guinea and I loved the pencil-sketch illustrations. It made me feel like I was right there in the bush with Kuri -- like I could go sit down with my friends in their bush houses and talk the night away. . . I miss PNG. This is an excellent missionary story, based on true events, that shows how Christianity can drastically change man's understanding of the world around him and forever make him thankful for taking that first step away from the old ways. . . ."Taste and see that the Lord is good. . ."
