I have read the major books by Don Richardson, and appreciate his ministry and message. He emphasizes the possibility of a cultural equivalent to present the gospel, and thanks to his emphasis, I was able to find one during my time in Suriname. However, as opposed to Ee Tauw!, he presents the people as they are in the raw, which makes it difficult to show in mixed audience with so many bare breasted women. I realize that this is reality, but makes it difficult for me to use the film.
Having lived in West New Guinea (Papua) during the time period covered in this video, it is realistic, accurate, and conveys well the entrance of light and truth into a culture that was for centuries dead to and alienated from God.
This is a fascinating true story, well acted by many of the actual characters. Watch this and see just one of countless examples of how faithfully God works out ways for all of mankind to find Him, in every culture.
