    The Book that gives a Different outlook!!!

    I think that this book gave me a totally different outlook on perspectives in general. I mean, Dale was about to be killed many times while he was staying with the Yali people and he did not even know it!! He was moving spiritual bounderies and the tribes people didn't like it at all, and were ready to kill him and all that were with him, but one person gave everyone a theory that they could believe. I would recommend this book to anyone that would like to learn how to have a different perspective on life in general!

    Thought provoking and Challenging

    This book can really challenge how one views the world. It gives one a bird's eye view of tribal people who were untouched by the civilized world prior to missionary Stanley Dale arriving. Dale's commitment to his faith and determination are amazing; and this private view into the world of missionary work is very interesting. The stories of the brutal ways in which the Yali people followed their 'god' are difficult to read. However, the effort it takes to read and digest this information is well worth it because along with the acts of brutality resides a beautiful story of love, faith, courage, miracles, and compassion. If you want to push yourself to see life from a perspective different from your own, this is the book for you.
