Review by John E. Vanden Akker, D.Min. Aug 22, 2002
If you want to know what being a missionary was like back from the early 50s until the end of the century, you will receive an accurate picture of it in this little volume of memoirs. It gives an accurate reflection of Liberian culture, often including some humor with it. Not only are the author's cultural description accurate but his Christian commitment and love for Christ shine through on every page. This little volume will not only acquaint you with what missionary life is like in the Liberian hinterland but it will teach you what missionary service and church planting is all about from the author's perspective. For the first nine months of my missionary service in Liberia, Dr. and Mrs. Luyben served as mentors for my wife and me. Without their wise input into our lives we might well have become what is often referred to as "first term casualties". This book will teach you about missions as well as the faith and commitment it takes to be a missionary in a very readable and engaging manner. You will enjoy a couple of evening's reading and understand missions better after purchasing this book.
