Format: Hardcover
I am a huge fan of biographical and history books, however, many of them are hard to get into as many read like a dictionary (and I'm a linguist). "God Spoke Tibetan" is a rare exception. From page one, this work or art gripped me like a John Grisham novel. Allan Maberly takes the account of the translation of the first Tibetan Bible and places the reader right into the action. It reads like a novel, with a full blown plot: conflict, solution, resolution, and conclusion. I felt the fears, frustrations as well as the triumph and relief of the characters. For anyone interested in missions, Bible Translation, or just a good rendition of a historical account, "God Spoke Tibetan" is a must read.

I found this book interesting, but lacking in real experience and knowledge of the Tibetan culture, traditions and religious practices, and rather proud of it, or so it seemed to me. They have that same old, I'm going to help you learn the truth about God attitude.

They other reviewer says in part, "It reads like a novel, with a full blown plot: conflict, solution, resolution, and conclusion. I felt the fears, frustrations as well as the triumph and relief of the characters." I say triumph? Really? ... Some of my thoughts left out ...

Perhaps I'll just ask, How much better did the Christians nations treated Tibet? Have they done anything about the genocide of the Tibetan people? Have they helped in a meaningful Christian way or have they turned a blind eye, a deaf ear, etc. Are the Tibetans better off having meet Christians? Is the church helping them now?

Hum-m-m. How many shirts, shoes, etc. made in China do you and your friends have in your closet? ... Some more of my thoughts left out ...

I really do think about this, kind of thing, when I read a book. This is why I get so mad at Christians, especially the preachy, you need to be saved kind. If they want my respect, then they should help those who need it, but can't give you something in return for it. You know, do a real act of selfless charity, rather than just help the ones who go to your church. Jesus did a lot of that, not that they mention it.

I admit these kind of things stopped me from enjoying this story. I used to love this sort of book, but then reality interfered. I meet some Tibetans and was shocked that nothing, at all, was being done to help them.
