Book. Book condition: Fair to Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Of the four great pioneers of the gospel and Christian civilization in Japan, Verbeck, Brown, Hepburn and Williams, this volume completes the biography of that one who as second on the ground and possibly the first in general usefulness. America's greatest gift to Japan was in these men. I knew them all, during four years in the Mikado's empire, as neighbors, friends and fellow workers, in perils and in joys. Though not technically a missionary - my calling being that of an educational pioneer - I loved and rejoiced in their work, as if one of them. From 1870 until Dr. Hepburn's decease in 19811, we were always friends, and also occasional correspondents. But without that noble work of God, the 'help meet for him, ' there would have been no such Dr. Hepburn, as all Japan and we his friends knew, and so I have in this volume much to say about Mrs. Hepburn.." Illustrated with black-and-white photographic plates. 238 pages with index. Book is in FAIR to GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

In 1939I walked upon quaking ground, in 1947 over the rubble of war. Instead of freedom, as most people had hoped would come to Europe, the most unfortunate and tangled circumstances have enslaved her. Europe is marching into chains unless saved from the Russians. The Iron Curtain is dropping down upon the nations, one by one, and will continue to do so if not halted by some momentous intervention..' So speaks Missionary Moennich from a full heart. A four-and-one-half month journey through fifteen countries of Europe permitted her to see the deadly work of Communism, the subtle tyrant that 'brutalizes the human soul..' Here at last is a Christian observer's 'inside story' of life today on the 'Unhappy Continent.'" 153 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; expected wear.

Foreword by Howard W. Ferrin, LL.D., President, Providence Bible Institute, Providence, R.I. Austin Paul was a missionary in the Congo. "An instrument which always has fascinated me is the stethoscope, used by me3dical doctors when listening to the sounds within the patient's body.. As I read this fascinating account of the unique evangelistic e3ffort of the author and his team of trumpeters, I felt I was listening in on a missionary stethoscope to the inner sounds of Africa. Never before have I felt the heart beat of a foreign field in just the same way. What could not be seen was heard, and each 'trumpet note' sounded its reverberation in my heart. The author captures the reader at the beginning and sustains his interest throughout with the many vivid pictures which he so skillfully paints of the people among whom he has labored for so many years."
