The first part of this book shows you how the tribesmen viewed their lives and how disturbances to what's normal to them looked from their non-western, non-civilized views. This part I found to be extremely eye-opening. The stark contrast in how they think because of a different background made me sometimes laugh and sit in awe of how obviously easy we miss things because we don't consider how they might see it!
The second part is how Don Richardson embarked on this high risk adventure and all the challenges. It's a great story! Twice I just blurted out loud 'No way!!!!' while reading, I was so amazed by it (and I've read a lot of good Christian biographies in silence).
If this intrigues you a bit, stretch yourself and read it!
About the actual meat of the book; Never have I ever heard a testimony so profound, so vital for every human being to read. My most compelling thought of this book is that in every culture around this world - no matter how far removed from Church or a bible people are - there is still an element of the Gospel of Jesus. That's no coincidence.
My encouragement to all Christians is that if you haven't read this fascinating and extraordinary tale before - read it. You will not be sorry. Just bear in mind it is not for the faint hearted. I mean we're talking cannibalistic tribes here. But it's all worth it.
My encouragement if you're not Christian and have no particular interest in Christianity - read it. You will learn something new about a culture so far removed from your own that you will be fascinated from start to finish. I assure you.
For those unfamiliar with radical discipleship by giving if their own lives in the service of others this book is extremely encouraging and enlightening. All Christians and anthropologists as well as unbelievers should read it.
