Item description for Servant on the Edge of History by Sam James...

"Servant on the Edge of History" describes the Vietnam War from a perspective seldom heard: from a missionary who loved the Vietnamese people, who refused to become an American spy, but who also loved his own country. James offers insights into where and how God was at work in this war-ravaged country, where his family risked all for the sake of the Gospel.

Publishers Description
Again and again it happens. Bombs fall in a nearby shopping district. Enemy soldiers terrorize neighboring homes. Crossfire decimates civilian cars at a roadblock. War infuses every quarter of Vietnam. Most Americans long ago have left for safety. The James family remains. Sam James and his wife, Rachel, and their four children sit tight in ravaged South Vietnam to share Jesus when the Vietnamese most need ministry--as the country falls to communism. Even during the frightening Tet Offensive, Sam communicates Christ's love and peace as he helps Vietnamese believers start churches and gird up spiritually for the dark days ahead. What makes one man willing to stare death in the face to obey God's call to serve the Vietnamese? And what becomes of all the seeds planted among these fledgling Christians as communism oppression advances? " Servant on the Edge of History" describes the Vietnam War from a perspective seldom heard: from a missionary who loved the Vietnamese people, who refused to become an American spy, but who also loved his own country. James offers insights into where and how God was at work in this war-ravanged country, where he risked all for the sake of the Gospel. About the author: Sam James for 43 years has served with the International Mission Board in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Northern Africa. He has been a church planter, administrator and missionary statesman in troubled areas as well as speaker for retreats and conferences in 100 countries. Sam and his wife, Rachel, are parents of four grown children, two of whom are on the mission field. Today, they reside in Richmond, Virginia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Servant on the Edge of History?

Serving in Faith  Jan 21, 2007
Reading this book enlightened my view of foreign missions and educated me on the courage and faith that a family like this one has to have to serve God and bring His word into a country many of us would be fearful even to visit. I began the book thinking that I would read a bit daily for a look into the world of a missionary. Instead, I could not put it down and read it within two days intrigued by the story and the emotional experiences between this family and the Vietnamese people they touched and changed.
Missionary's view of fall of Vietnam  Jan 5, 2007
The missionary in this book gives a wonderful and very personal insight into life in Vietnam leading up to the war. A good history or missionary study book.
Loved it!!  Dec 15, 2005
This book is awesome. I have read it over and over and it keeps getting better. The author is a gifted storyteller and his writing style makes this book a very enjoyable read. The part at the end of each chapter where he reviews his experiences and draws out the lessons learned was particularly helpful for me. I would recommend this book to anyone.
Couldn't put it down  Nov 25, 2005
As the title of my review suggests, this was definitely and interesting read. I really hope that others have a chance to take the time to read this book. With so many accounts of Vietnam from the soldier's perspective, it's definitely a unique view of the war and why someone would voluntarily go and risk everything to help the Vietnamese people. The author himself is a veteran of the Korean War, which most likely helped him deal with so many of the the tragedies, as well as triumphs, of the Vietnam War.
Interesting Perspective  Nov 25, 2005
I picked up this book because I've always wondered how missionaries can take their families to such dangerous places, far away from loved ones. This was a great first-hand account of a missionary who did this and the mindset that it takes to risk your life for something you believe in. I actually couldn't put it down. I recommend it for anyone -- christian or not -- because it gives you a personal view of someone in extraordinary circumstances going through very human emotions and managing to come out on the other end a better person for it. It's definitely a must-read.
