Anything is Possible Mar 11, 2008
I first bought this book after hearing Marilyn speak. It is almost as good as hearing her in person although nothing can match her dynamic personality. Hers is a story of incredible faith and a lifetime of service. Find out how God used a young single women to transform an entire jungle community. I have loaned this book out multiple times both at home and overseas. It has inspired many missionaries of today. For anyone seeking to follow God's will for their life, this will be an encouragement.
Look forward to reading Oct 20, 2007
The book came very quickly and was in good shape. I have not had the time to read the book as yet, but have read another book by the author and that is why I ordered this book.
Tremendous Storyteller Aug 17, 2006
What happens when men won't take up the cross and go to the most remote areas of the world to share the gospel? Single women such as Marilyn Laszlo take up the burden. Marilyn has a wonderful way of telling stories that bring her readers right there with her. You understand exactly what she was going through, and are inspired to sacrifice and go yourself--as I was, also in Papua New Guinea.
Good Story But Terrible Theology Dec 3, 2004
This book is an okay missionary story, but Ms. Laszlo's approach to spreading the Gospel is entirely wrong. She was either by herself or had another lady with her at the tribe she was working in. I know from being on the mission field that that is no way to spread the Gospel and please God at the same time. What Ms. Laszlo and her fellow missionaries did, I think, is just like having a lady pastor.
THE NITTY GRITTY OF THE MISSION FIELD Nov 4, 2000
This was a life changing book for me. I have been a Christian for a long time but only recently became interested in missionaries. This book describes so beautifully what happens when an ordinary person is called by God to take the gospel to people who have never heard it. This school teacher from Indiana answered the call to go to New Guinea (350 miles from the nearest radio contact) and learn a new language, then translate the entire New Testament into that language. It is a very personal account of her relationships, her struggles and the miracles that occurred while she was there. I will never again be able to put missionaries on the back burner after getting to know this woman. I'm giving this book to all my close friends at Christmas, I can't think of anyone who would not be fascinated by this journey.
