Item description for Missionary Patriarch: The True Story of John G. Paton: Evangelist for Jesus Christ Among the South Sea Cannibals (Missionary Adventure) by John Gibson Paton & James Paton...

Some of the defining issues of our day include the dearth of men, the loss of fatherhood, and the complete absence of multi-generational vision on the part of families. Since beginning Vision Forum, we have made it our goal to urge fathers to turn their hearts to home and to rise up with courage to address the issues of the age. When I share this message before an audience, I usually begin by quoting at length an autobiographical account, penned by John G. Paton in the 19th century, describing how his father's love and training prepared him to endure bitter hardship, to persevere against unspeakably difficult circumstances, and to resist sin. This may be the most important narrative of missionary work you will ever read. The book touched me on the deepest level and has become an important part of my life and personal vision. We have republished it because it contains the finest testimony of multi-generational love and devotion between a father and son that I have ever read outside the Scriptures. Paton, a descendant of the Scottish Covenanters, was able to love and lead to Christ the very people who tried to eat his wife and child. One of the most important books you will ever read to your children.

Reviews - What do customers think about Missionary Patriarch: The True Story of John G. Paton?

Well worth reading  Aug 13, 2003
If you like missionary biographies, you will find this missionary story to be one of the best you have ever read. I highly recommend it for families. Parents could read aloud to children who cannot yet read this level yet. Although sometimes the subject matter could be distasteful, Mr. Paton uses delicate terms as any gentleman would, but he tells the plain truth about the cannibals without denying them their dignity. Mr. Paton was a godly Christian man, and he tells his story with clarity, honesty, sensitivity and winsome humor. His Christ-like love for the cannibals and his perseverance through unbelievable trials will grip you and carry you through this book. His is a life that we in comfortable, apathetic America need to consider and take to heart. He was totally sold out to the Lord Jesus Christ and he was willing to die serving Christ in foreign lands. You will be inspired and and your faith strengthened by this story!
A Wonderful and Convicting Autobiography  Jun 4, 2003
John Paton is a shining example that will not fade with time. His love for people, his wit when dealing with the child-like cannibals, and his never dying enthusiasm for the mission convicted me. I enjoyed every page of this book. Paton wrote in a way that was interesting, encouraging, and refreshing. The book might look large, but it is worth it to pick it up and read all the way through it. I loved it!
