Discover how James Gribble's life became one of the most inspiring stories of the modern missions era. Stimulating!
Much more than a diary, a pioneer's adventure, or a love story, this is the story of a life of perseverance in the face of insurmountable odds.
Through 42 daily meditations, you will discover the life of pioneer missionary James Gribble who sacrificed himself to bring the Gospel into the heart of Africa. The Bible readings, compelling stories, many original photos, and reflective questions will encourage and challenge you, especially if you are a missionary in the field or on a missionary committee.
This book will also help any follower of Christ to better understand, support, and accompany those who have crossed borders to serve the Lord.
A Consecrated Life, A Transformed Nation will inspire you to renew your passion and commitment to making disciples of Jesus Christ, whether across the street or in the farthest corners of our world!
