Isobel Kuhn has touched my heart and encouraged me deeply in the service of our Lord. The best thing about this book is that it encouraged me to read the writings of Isobel Kuhn. They are rich resources for learning to be fishers of men and women.

If you can only read one of Kuhn's books, read Green Leaf in Drought (which is not even about her). However if you want a rich blessing start with In the Arena and Nests Above the Abyss. You will not be disappointed, but you will be challenged!

Isobel wa
I had never really known about Isobel Kuhn until I found this book. It was very informative and easy to read.

The only thing that bugged me was the relationship between John and Isobel. There wasn't much said about it and it seemed like John was constantly away doing work in other villages. It almost seemed like they didn't have the same ministry. But it may have just been written that way because the book is supposed to be about Isobel. Not sure...
Favorite quote from this book: “Oh, God, this is a new venture for us and we feel like three zeros. But you are our leader who goes before us. You are Number One in front of the zeros and that makes one thousand!”
This was such a good book.Isobel's faith was amazing,she learned to listen to God and serve others.
Isobel Kuhn found a strength in herself she never knew was there. This book made me relize how lucky I am to have good health and in general an easy life. Her story encouraged me to want to serve God even more.
