Reviews - What do customers think about God Still Loves The French?
Two thumbs up! Er, is that an okay sign in France? Jul 3, 2007
If you've spent a little time in France and wondered why you may not have felt entirely welcomed, or perhaps are planning a trip to France and would like an intimate and quick look into French culture, this book offers insights beyond those typically found in travelogues. Written by a protestant American missionary with a genuine love for the French, and a desire to share God's love with his adopted country, this book tells of his struggles and offers many laughs at the expense of the author as well as French culture. Mr. Mailloux's writing has that "you are there with him" quality and the narrative moves along quickly. In a way, the book serves a dual purpose: first as excellent preparatory reading for new missionaries on the way to France; and second as a hilarious and insightful travelogue for people who wish to understand French culture, or who may be traveling to France. Two thumbs up for this second tome from Mr. Mailloux!
France lost much by expelling Huguenots Mar 24, 2007
Although Mailloux paints a bleak picture of France's modern soul, he cherishes the hope that God's power and grace continues to create beautiful souls in the spiritual desert that is France today. Proof of God's effective love emerges mainly in the cameo portraits Mailloux gives of people he has seen convert from darkness to light. He writes with consistent humor, sprinkling each page with witty observations. No doubt he cultivates a light-hearted hope in order better to endure the exasperations of a twenty-year effort in that resistant mission field. He now broadcasts, teaches, and preaches to French-speaking Haitians, Quebecois, and Caribbean Islanders. An easy but thought-provoking read, full of truth. I have never seen another book on this subject. To read my two-page review, write email@example.com.
Light Read Produces Significant Discussion Feb 13, 2007
Marc makes our men's reading group laugh and then, with one terse sentence, he turns our discussion to weighty matters. Marc has a keen insight and effective method of presenting a Christian view of life. His first book, "Discovery on the Katmandu Trail," is an even better read, in my opinion. Both these books are gospel saturated without being "preachy" or "trite." nathan e. lewis.
A Great Read! Dec 12, 2006
Marc Mailloux is a wonderful story teller! As one who has been to France a number of times, has had children live there for a time and has loved learning the French language I found this book full of anecdotes that rang true to my own experience, causing me to laugh or to shake my head in turn. An easy, fun read, thoughtful and thought-provoking. A definite must for anyone wishing to see the Gospel prosper in that dark land.
A must-read for anyone going to France to live Nov 30, 2006
My Swiss French-speaking wife and I were missionaries for 3 years in Kenya, East Africa but obviously are very familiar with the French scene as well. We feel this book is a must-read for anyone going to France to live and work with the people, but especially for current and prospective missionaries. It should be required reading for missions courses at seminaries and Bible colleges. It is humorous and an easy read, but it contains extremely valuable insights into the people and culture of France. It is also very helpful for anyone going to live or work in another culture. The book's principles carry over to any cultural setting. Run, don't walk, to purchase this book.
