Peace Child

"...Three brave Sawi had touched hands across a culture gap equal to several thousand years of human development."
What do you think it would be like to go to a stone-age culture, deep in a dark rainforest, where people have never seen white skin, blond hair, steel, motor boats, man-made light, or eating utensils? Somewhere where people hardly wear any clothes, spend their lives desperately trying to appease the spirits and demons, honor treachery and revenge, and have head-hunting and cannibalism as a part of daily life? And what if your mission in going to these people was to share the word of Christ, where gentleness and humility and goodness was almost despised as weakness?
Don Richardson's book Peace Child, is the story of his ministry doing just that: bringing Christ to the head-hunting tribesmen of New Guinea.
This is a life changing book! The insight and beauty of God's culture changing story of salvation finally reaching the hearts of those who needed it for so long will be sure to inspire and encourage you.
This is an AMAZING book and you need to read it!

"Go out quickly into the streets.... and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame... make them come in so that my house will be full." Luke 14
