I know the author personally and have for years been fascinated by the great stories of the uniqueness of his childhood and ministry. Mike and his family have deeply impacted and been impacted by the Yanomamo people with whom they have worked. I personally encourage you to take a look at this book. You can get a taste with these excerpts…
Here is a note from the publisher on some special pre-publication prices for this great book:
Dear Friend in Christ,
It isn’t often that a book such as this comes out. Three generations of the same family working with this Venezuelan tribe and now a new film coming out from the tribal leaders themselves to refute the secular anthropologists by showing how walking with Christ has transformed their culture.
But I need your help. We are going to press in a couple of weeks and need to make sure we print enough books to meet the need. In exchange, we are offering a huge discount on pre-publication orders (see below). We would appreciate it if you would share this information with others, as we don’t have access to many of those churches. With all of the marginal books and films that are out there that your church members might spend their time on, this is one that you’ll want to emphasize.
