Interesting but not exciting Dec 27, 2008
This is the true story of a missionary who lives among cannibals to bring the word of God to them. It's a quick read as there isn't a lot of substance to it. No surprise ending. Obviously if the missionary wrote the book he didn't get eaten!
one of my favorite books Dec 6, 2008
Don Richardson is a wonderful storyteller and this is a great story of God's power to save!
Don't miss this book. Nov 8, 2008
How can it be anything but a series of miracles that a missionary couple and their children would even want to venture into tribes of cannibals and headhunters where no white man had been seen, survive and thrive and bring many to Yahusha the Savior? Nowadays some feel it is politically incorrect to take the Gospel into pagan areas and change their culture. The cannibals in this srory saw it differntly. Their lives of treachery, butchery, fear and horror were not exactly Edenesque. While others are making names for themselves in politics, Fortune 500 or wherever, I suspect this couple's names are famous in Heaven. It is not just reading of the lives that were transformed that was so transfixing, but how much we see the grace of the Father in leading to that transformation, and how the book helps us to see what our basic human nature is without the Scriptures and their impact on our culture.
Fantastic story, great for a read-aloud! Jul 26, 2008
I read this story as a new Christian years ago, and then read it aloud to my children. It is amazing and the type of story you can read over and over and it is always relevant and you always get something new from it. Read it! The sequel is amazing as well, "Lords of the Earth."
