Item description for John Williams: Messenger of Peace (Christian Heroes: Then & Now) (Christian Heroes, Then & Now) by Janet Benge & Geoff Benge...
Overview "Hold on!" the Polynesian rower yelled, but the giant wave crashed over the rowboat, flinging John into the surging water. John gasped for air as the undercurrent pulled him down. Frantically he thrashed his arms and kicked his legs, but it was no use. I can't drown! There are too many islands to go to! I have to reach them all! The thousands of islands scattered across the Pacific Ocean were home to fierce warriors and cannibals who sacrificed their children to the many gods their worshiped. A few islands had been dramatically transformed by the gospel, but thousands more were waiting for someone to come and teach them about the one true God. John Williams dedicated his life to bringing the message of Christ's love and peace to these brutal islands. In the face of constant danger, he discipled and inspired Polynesians to go as missionaries to their neighbors, ultimately giving his life to see the gospel spread across the vast Pacific. (1796-1839) This best-selling, missionary biography series - Christian Heroes: Then & Now - chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory.
