I am so excited to be able to share this book with you guys! I just finished reviewing a book by Rebecca Davis called Witness Men: True Stories of God at Work in Papua, Indonesia. This is part of her Hidden Heroes series which I had never heard of.
The Hidden Heroes series is geared toward children in elementary school to middle school, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think this is an awesome way for kids to learn about missionaries and how God works all over the world to reach people. The book is a very easy read and is intriguing enough to easily keep any child's attention, whether they are reading it or you are reading it to them.
I think in our culture, when children grow up in a Christian home they take it for granted that everyone learns about God and loves God. This book shows that there are people out there who have never even seen people who look differently from them, much less heard of God. But the book also shows that innate desire that people have for a higher power. Davis tells all about the gods that these tribes were worshiping and many of their worshiping styles, which range from cannibalism to sacrifice.
I highly recommend this book to families or schools. It is so inspiring and interesting to children AND adults! I can't wait to read the rest of Rebecca Davis' series. She is an amazing author and I'm so glad to have this subject in an easy-to-read format for my children.
