Item description for Peace Child: An Unforgettable Story of Primitive Jungle Treachery in the 20th Century by Don Richardson & Paul Michael...

Overview
In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. This is the unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology. The "peace child" became the secret to unlocking a value system that existed through generations over centuries, possbily milleniums, of time. This analogy became a stepping-stone by which the gospel came into the Sawi culture and started both a spiritual and social revolution from within. With an epilogue updating how the gospel impacted the Sawi, this missionary classic will insire a new generation of readers to hear this unforgettable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating with Christ in a meaningful way to those around us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Peace Child: An Unforgettable Story of Primitive Jungle Treachery in the 20th Century?

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."
 
Bruchko  Jul 3, 2008
A quick, easy, descriptive good read! I wanted to know more but realized the author gave enough info to totally describe his experiences.
 
Awesome!  Jan 7, 2008
Have read it once, and will definitely read it again. Shows how God can accomplish the impossible, if you are available for Him. I loved the details given about everything, the real-life likeness of the writing. It's a very intense real-life story, with an unbelievable outcome.
 
Thrilling story  Oct 29, 2007
Gripping tale of real life testimony of making God known in a distant land. Richardson is a story teller. His writing is clear, direct and holds your attention. You will thank God for the fact someone brought you the same wonderful message of hope.
