Item description for Missionaries And Monsters by William J. Gibbons & William M. Rebsamen...

Clues to undiscovered species have been left by missionaries and clergy throughout the world, and explorer William J. Gibbons is hot on their trail. Bill travels to remote parts of the world investigating cryptozoological mysteries still remaining in God's creation.

Here, Bill collects reports of mystery animals from missionaries and others, with chapters on lake monsters, sea serpents, unknown apes, and giant reptiles. Some of these cryptids look like species from the fossil record, while others (like the "Nepal Dragon" sighted in 1980) don't resemble known species at all. Accompanied by illustrations from cryptozoological artist William M. Rebsamen, these stories are enjoyable for older children and adults.

Reviews - What do customers think about Missionaries And Monsters?

Though given a reading level of 9-12, "Missionaries and Monsters" is hardly a book just for kids. Possibly the fact that the author, William J. Gibbons, along with the illustrator William M. Rebsamen are both admitted creationists, has something to do with the reading level ratings. And though only consisting of 103 pages, includes some stories never before widely published in cryptozoology. Mr. Gibbons has even headed several research expeditions to certain listed locales himself, and has future plans to continue doing so. A refreshing Christian point-of-view heralding some of the greatest explorers the world has ever known; Christian Missionaries, as well as the numerous others that have pioneered uncharted territories throughout the world. Hopefully we'll be reading of future exploits of Mr. Gibbons, and others, from his gifted pen.
Widen your Worldview - if you dare!  May 28, 2008
Excellent and enjoyable book. The reports of mystery creatures are amazing. Factual, well researched and believable, it shows there is so much being missed by the mainstream scientists we entrust to show us the more obscure fauna of our world. William J Gibbons has done a thorough job and I look forward to learning more about his discoveries in the future.
a few problems  May 12, 2008
even though the book did have quite a few nice accounts of cryptid encounters, i had a few problems with the writer. i guess the biggest problem i had is that he doesnt look at a lot of these things from a scientific point of view, but from a religious perspective. he says in the book that he beieves that god created men and dinosaurs at the same time, i find that kind of contradictory for a cryptozoologist because a lot of cryptids are fascinating because they have survived for millions of years without us noticing. if we were all created at the same time, then the coelacanth(one of the most amazing modern animal discoveries) would be no different from a goldfish, and mokele-mbembe would just be some big beast that we havent yet found instead of being an amazing animal who may have survived hidden for millions of years, if you are just interested on the accounts, without looking for the authors oppinion, then you may find this book pretty good
Missionaries and Monsters, miniature but a must  Oct 7, 2007
A small but interesting book. I would liked to have seen a few more illustrations. I have been reading Cryptozoology books since I was a kid, and it seems like this book would be better for younger people to peak their interest in cryptozoology.
Illuminating the Lost Worlds  Sep 4, 2006
A writer must write of which he knows. This is every author's first maxim. And Bill Gibbons, in his book MISSIONARIES AND MONSTERS, does exactly that. Not only is Bill an avid researcher with a wealth of information stored in his head, but he has firsthand experience in the realm of living dinosaurs, being a veteran Mokele-mbembe hunter.

This book is a wonderful introduction to the "lost worlds" of cryptozoology, and to the creatures that would probably never have entered western consciousness were it not for the evangelistic efforts of missionaries. This book is logically laid out into chapters focusing on different types of cryptids (unknown animals), and more or less chronologically presented. It's an easy read, a fast one, and guaranteed to never bore. Bill's concise writing demonstrates his knowledge of some of the most elusive historical references, giving the reader a well-rounded look at some of the lesser-known "monsters," and new perspective on some of the more famous ones.

Scientific creationism is not the focus of MISSIONARIES AND MONSTERS, but it is touched on in context with the subject matter. The book is more than a primer on cryptozoology; it also demonstrates a less-talked-about fact that a biblical worldview is a logical stance to take, and actually makes more sense when talking about such seemingly fantastic subjects as dinosaurs living in modern times. Even those who hold to an evolutionary worldview, however, will be impressed at the sheer wealth of knowledge Gibbons manages to pack into this book.

Novices and acolytes of the cryptozoological world alike will love MISSIONARIES AND MONSTERS.
