Additionally, this brand new hardcover from Banner of Truth, newly printed in 2013, is a beautiful edition of the book. Beautiful cover and a neat, kind of old-fashioned/antique look to it. Would make a great gift. THIS is the unabridged version. Others out there by other publishers are not complete.
My copy of this hardcover book was different than shown and was much lower in price.I must warn readers he is a self professed Calvinist (page 195),but his teaching does not express itself to that direction.This book is basically in 2 parts with the former his experiences on Tanna and the latter his experiences on Aniwa.
I count 6 or 7 times he was given a chance to leave Tanna but because of his love for the people there stayed on.He had problems galore as he struggled with language,wicked traditions ,and extreme sickness.
The type is rather small and is not written in an easy to read style in which case a more modern up to date coverage of his life can be had through a different publisher,mine was by 'the banner of truth'
This is a very complete bio being edited by his brother James.It includes his parents life and experiences,his upbringing both at home and school and even includes 3 appendice,s with a complete index to the book for quick reference to any given topic in his life.
A great book,I was inspired by his massive dedication to God in many,many dangerous situations.Some of us are light years ahead of others it seems in regards to commitment and faith.
