Peace Child: An Unforgetting Story of Primitive Jungle Teaching in the 20th Century
Jul 13, 2011
After finishing End of the Spear, I was inspired to read more biographical stories of people who have devoted their lives to God's call. My son read Peace Child earlier this year as part of his history curriculum and really enjoyed it. He said that I should read it. So, since I've now found time to get some reading time in, this book was my next choice. This story is similar to End of the Spear in that missionaries enter a world totally different from their own. The two stories begin around the same time period, but on different sides of the globe. The people that they encounter in this story are headhunters and cannibals who are radically changed in heart by the story of Christ. I won't give away the story, because you have to read it for yourselves. It's well worth the time. I have to say that I was very impressed with the author's writing style. I can tell he is a master of language, both English and Sawi, the language of the people that he served for God's glory.
