John G Paton: Missionary to the New Hebrides

Paton, John Gibson

Product Description

Recommended by John Leonard of Westminster Theological Seminary. See all of Professor Leonard's recommendations.

Paton's autobiography traces his life from childhood in Dumfries, Scotland through to his last days. His passion to win to Christ cannibals on the New Hebrides Islands brought him into the middle of a life-threatening ministry. After experiencing many losses including the death of his wife and child on the island of Tanna , he is finally driven off the island by the natives. From there his work takes a different shape in fund-raising for the needs of the missionaries on those islands, and finally he is able to return himself to continue the work among the islanders, seeing many give their lives to Jesus. Paton's life challenges readers to evaluate the depth of their commitment to Christ. -Westminster Bookstore staff
