The five men and their wives were called to this mission in amazing ways and they endured with inspiring faith.
In the epilogue we learned that the relationship with the Auca indians has improved greatly
I enjoyed hearing about the first visit the Auca's made to Palm Beach and their initial interactions with the five men.
The ability of the 5 wives to handle the news with peace.
A good portion of the book is comprised of journal entries of the five men and their wives. The way a person writes in the journal is not necessarily always very entertaining. i appreciate that we got to hear their actual thoughts and feelings, but the journal entries were a bit dry and bland at times.
I wish Alison was more relate-able as a christian. You never hear her praying except for "Please God Please God". You never see her make mistakes in her christian walk. I wish she would have been more human in her christian walk, but stumbled at times in a relate-able way and was then redeemed from her mistakes.
This was my first
Her accents helped me quickly differentiate who was speaking. It was helpful.
Alison would be played my Helen Hunt and Chief would be Tommy Lee Jones.
Tormented soul redeemed
When Angel leaves Michael the second time I felt her torment and was pleading inside for her to change her mind and stay with him.
Angel was the most memorable character. She is a product of her childhood but in the end is not completely defined by the terrible events of her past.
Absolutely! This story inspires me to want to be a better spouse. It causes you to re-examine the vows made at marriage and want to respect them even more.
Kim's commitment was unbelievable. His determination to get to his wife's side right after the accident was so moving and then his decision to stay true to his wife despite the numerous obstacles and challenges. His story is amazing.
Yes! The story just keeps unfolding and leaves you wanting more.
Not really. I purchased this audiobook as part of my book club and would listen in the car. I kept finding myself tuning in and out of her message. It just didn't hold my attention.
Probably not. I didn't feel like the author had anything deeply relevant to my life to share.
No, this is more of a self-help book and would not be appropriate for tv/movie
The author spends a lot of time talking about her journaling which is not something I can see myself doing. I wish that less time was spent on this topic.
I enjoyed the humor and any practical examples Driscoll gave of how to reach out to the current culture.
More practical examples of how to do what Driscoll is encouraging, and less theory.
Is broke down some anxiety about entering modern culture in order to better understand the lost.
