Overview

"Her Life Was the Best Commentary of the Bible We Have Ever Read"

Eliza Davis-George, the daughter of slaves, grew up in racially segregated Texas, where she took to heart the stories she'd heard as a child in Sunday school. Empowered by her faith, this remarkable woman broke through barriers of sex, color, and status as she set out to bring the truth and hope of the Gospel to the people of western Africa.

In the jungles of Liberia, "Mother Eliza," as they called her, rescued little girls from marriages to old men and provided education for tribal people. She raised funds in the tottering economy of the Great Depression, and she single-handedly persuaded government leaders to donate land for her mission work. When her American supporters failed to send promised funds, she dug her own food out of the jungle soil. Nothing was too difficult, no obstacle too great, to keep her from telling the story of Jesus' love. In fact, she made her last journey into the jungles of Liberia when she was 95 years of age.

You will be moved and inspired by the fascinating story of this brave and tireless hero of the faith, who, during her 100 years on this earth, left her indelible, enduring mark on a people and a land.

On her 100th birthday, hundreds of Liberians paraded through the streets carrying banners that read: MOTHER ELIZA GEORGE, GREAT DAUGHTER OF AMERICA, GREAT DESCENDANT OF AFRICA, GREAT SAINT AND MISSIONARY MOTHER -- HER LIFE WAS THE BEST COMMENTARY OF THE BIBLE WE HAVE EVER READ.

    MUST BE READ

    EVERY missionary or EVERY would-be missionary NEEDS to read this book and pass it along. I have been a missionary for many years but reading this I realize there is MUCH MORE to it than what most of us ever even thought!
