We just finished reading With Two Hands at the dinner table after family worship times. What a great story. Several chapters had me tearing up with joy! Praise the Lord! ~John Crotts, pastor and author of Loving the Church: God's People Flourishing in God's Family
"I believe no Christian's life is "just normal," because each is a God-story waiting to be told in heaven someday. In the meantime, I thank God for With Two Hands! where I get a preview of one of those heavenly stories. Thank you, Rebecca Davis, for giving us and our children a glimpse of God's work through the life of Dick McLellan and the hidden heroes of the Ethiopian church." ~ Noël Piper (Author and Wife of John Piper)

Readers will be amazed at the Providence of God in paving the way for the Gospel of Jesus Christ through visions and prophecies that came to villagers who had never heard of the One True God. Over and over again, we read of instances where a missionary or evangelist arrives at a remote village only to learn that the people there were waiting for just such an occasion because of a long-ago prophecy. These remarkable "coincidences" strengthen the reader's faith as he sees how God works to bring His word to those who have never heard.
Importantly, the Word of God is central--those who believe do so because of the Word of God, not because there was a prophecy of a white man coming or a vision of gold leaves (a Bible whose pages have gold-colored edges). They believe when they hear the story of Jesus Christ and His saving power.
Children will thrill to stories of witch-doctors whose fear of demons and whose cruel manner of life melt away once they meet the Savior. Christians are miraculously protected from harm, seemingly impossible obstacles disintegrate, and hardened adversaries come to Christ.
This book is a good read-aloud for children. I read it to my children, but often got choked up and had tears running down my cheeks, so it might have been better (in my case!) to let the kids read this one on their own. Or get Dad (or someone who won't blubber through the stories) to read it.
*With Two Hands* recounts some of the amazing ways in which the gospel has spread in Ethiopia since the middle of the last century. Australian missionary, Dick McClellan, and many, many faithful Ethiopian evangelists shared the good news with men and women despite suffering beatings, burnt buildings, imprisonments, and attempted murders. Rebecca Davis masterfully tells of how God has been building His church in Ethiopia. For example, Fanta, a man who walked slowly and painfully with the help of crutches, courageously went to a fearsome tribe who routinely killed all strangers. But instead of losing his life, Fanta was welcomed because it turned out the tribe held in special regard those with deformities! In a relatively short time, many of those formerly brutal men became followers of Christ!
Story after story will build your faith and leave you in awe of God's power and might. We greatly enjoyed *With Two Hands* as a read-aloud, and I'm looking forward to exploring more in this series.
Chapter 14 tells of a furiously anger crazed communist leader who came with his men to break up a large outdoor Christian gathering.
As he pointed his rifle at the head of the Australian missionary and could not pull the trigger because of a supernatural power, he left
in a rage and was the only one killed when his truck hit a tree. Every chapter speaks of the God of heaven at work through the body
of Christ in Ethopia to bring thousands into His kingdom in the midst of communist rule. Terrific reading.
