Mad Missionaries

While away on the weekend I went to a second hand book shop and picked up a book called the Poisonwood Bible, the story of a southern Baptist missionary family who head out from segregated Georgia to the Belgian Congo in 1959 to take the Gospel to the ‘descendents of Ham’.

Dad is a raving fundy preacher and the story is told thru the eyes of his four daughters and his wife. So far its a great story of how not to do mission…

I also picked up Bonhoeffer’s No Rusty Swords

for 50c.
