Reviews - What do customers think about King Of The Cannibals: The Story Of John G. Paton, Missionary To The Hebrides?
Great Love and Faith shown in the life of John Paton Dec 15, 1998
John Paton a Psalm Singing reformed Christian, was a native of Scotland that became a missionary to the cannibals of the South Pacific in the 1800's. Mr. Paton shines with the grace of his Lord by risking his life over and over again for people that did not want him. This man truly believed in the sovereignty of God.. A memorable moment in the book was when Mr. Paton challenged the witch doctors, to kill him with their magic (this reminded me of Elijah's challenge to the prophets of Baal in I Kings 18). Mr. Paton spent his whole life learning their language and translating the Bible for them. Many other missionaries lost their lives on the Islands but by God's Grace Mr. Paton lived to see the fruits of his labors. I highly recommend this book to you and pray that more men and women like John Paton will be raised up among us.
