The author does a terrific job of weaving humor, excitement, joy and fear as he tells of the struggles he and his wife faced to not only reach the Dao people but also while learning their language and customs. They truly believe the words of George Whitefield, "We are immortal until our work is done" (p180).
I would strongly recommend this book for readers of all ages and of all walks of life. It is very easy to read and will keep you engaged throughout. I found it building my faith while challenging me to renew my commitment to play a part in sharing the Gospel. Whether you are in the remotest of jungles or a sprawling urban city the book is a great encouragement.
Time and again the book reminded me of just how normal Scott and Jennie are. They were not fictional heroes without faults or failures; they had the same problems, questions, and doubts that any of us might have. Even the writing of the book is normal and conversational (with some of the same trappings we fall into in our everyday speech), yet they also had faith. The faith they had is the same trust in God that we could have, if we would only step out on what we claim to believe.
The book is an excellent read. I urge anyone who wants more out of life to pick it up. I have bought the book for myself, and now am getting another copy to share with friends. The world is much bigger than our daily routines would lead us to believe. There is a much more important job to be done than the one that results in a mere paycheck.
You won't regret buying and reading or sharing this book.
