.. I challenge you to read this book and not feel deeply convicted by the beauty of a life poured out on God's altar for eternity and not want the same- whatever the cost.
... This biography not only tells us what Mary Slessor accomplished but also analyses why her labours had such a deep impact. We do well to learn from her example!
Conrad Mbewe, Pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church and first Chancellor of the African Christian University, Lusaka, Zambia
What a story and what a woman of God. Mary Slessor was a hero of the faith indeed - worthy to be ranked with those mentioned in the latter part of Hebrews chapter 11. This book is a good summary of her life and mission service with an incisive assessment of her character, ministry and impact on both Calabar and Scotland. She broke the accepted norms of 19C mission in her identification with the people, commitment and willingness to suffer for the gospel - and with what remarkable results.
Patrick Johnstone, WEC Interational Regional Director for Europe & Author Emeritus, Operation World
What we would call her life of sacrifice, Mary Slessor called a life of privilege. Persevering through many hardships and sadness with humility, God's sovereign purposes meant everything to her.
Amazing, encouraging, challenging, inspiring - a wonderful read.
