Description

In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. Here is their unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology. The "peace child" became the secret to unlocking a value system that existed through generations over centuries, possibly millenniums, of time. This analogy became a stepping-stone by which the gospel came into the Sawi culture and started both a spiritual and social revolution from within.

With an epilogue updating how the gospel impacted the Sawi, this missionary classic will inspire a new generation of readers to hear this unforgettable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating with Christ in a meaningful way to those around us.

Inspiring Missionary story
This story seems easy to listen to and certainly is inspiring. Some of the action is very violent, but an honest picture of the depravity of man. Probably not for younger ears.

This title was one of the best that I have listened to. Don and Carol Richardson listen to God's command to go to an area inhabited by a tribe of people that use cannibalism in their way of life. This story truly demonstrates that with God, all things are possible, no matter who or what you are dealing with. I recommend this and "Lords of the Earth".

In this inspirational memoir Paul Michael's resonant voice and deft narration capture the risk that missionaries Don and Carol Richardson took in 1962 when they moved to New Guinea, along with their seven-month-old son, to share the gospel with the Stone Age Sawi tribes. Michael's understated portrayal of tribalism, headhunting, and cannibalism sounds fully authentic. A custom of the Sawis was to honor the tribesmen they considered to be the most deceitful in bringing down their enemies—“to fatten with friendship for the slaughter." Michael's polished performance of what the Sawi tribes deemed honorable is chilling and hard to forget. This unforgettable story demonstrates some of the personal costs of missionary work, but listeners should be aware that the first four chapters are filled with graphic imagery of treachery and murder.
