I enjoyed this book for sure. As someone headed to med school, I found it really inspiring, and I am glad I read it. I did feel like Tracy Kidder went just a little overboard on the glorification of Paul Farmer (mostly well-deserved) which made it feel a little gushy to me at some points.

One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than 40 languages, sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the 20th century by librarians across the country.

Really great story with thought provoking and relevant themes. I had not read the story before, and I will likely read it again. I went and watched the movie right after I finished the audiobook. The book is so, so much better.

In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. Peace Child tells their unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology.

"The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this." This is the key statement of Miracles, in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation.
