Item description for Samuel Morris: Missionary to America (Heroes of the Faith) by Terry W. Whalin...
He was not your "typical" missionary-he was an African called to serve in the United States. No one would believe the adventures of nineteenth-century missionary Samuel Morris- unless they believe in a God of compassion and grace. Samuel Morris began life as Kaboo, the eldest son of a tribal chieftain. He was a prince, but then he became a pawn-held in torturous limbo until his father could pay ransom to an enemy tribe. When Kaboo's captors became too greedy, and no amount of ivory could rescue him, a death of unbelievable cruelty awaited. And then God intervened. From Kaboo's miraculous escape, to his acceptance of Christ and baptism by missionaries, to his remarkable voyage to America where he would have an amazing impact on scores of lives, the story of Samuel Morris is an is an adventure of divine proportions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Samuel Morris: Missionary to America (Heroes of the Faith)?
An awesome story. A must read for any Christian. Dec 17, 2007
It seems, from time to time, the Lord touches a person on Earth with a special annointing. Kaboo,aka Samuel Morris, was one of those people. This young boy had a tremendous impact on many people-though his life spanned only twenty years. His influence is still felt. Personally, I have been led to write about this young man in two different novels I am writing. The hero is one of the books is patterned after Sammy, to a certain degree. Terry Whalin kept this book true to Sammy's character, unassuming, to the point, and focused on the Lord. My goal is that every believer will read this story and allow the spirit of Sammy to guide them to a place where they let the Spirit of God lead them in their journey. More importantly, if you're not a believer, you might become one before you're finished. That power for conversion was Sammy's legacy. Donald James Parker
