Christian Focus are now reissuing this popular series of books which were prepared as stories for broadcasting in the 1940s when Dr White and his wife returned to Australia from their missionary work in Tanzania. His experiences in the mission hospital, equipped with only early, basic equipment, are woven into the adventures which provide an insight into rural African life still influenced by witchcraft. Dr White's medical skills are paralleled by his skill in introducing his patients to a Saviour who is able to forgive their sin.Christian Focus wisely give a brief historic update of the work and point out that the mission hospital is now staffed largely by African doctors.
This Jungle Doctor book will take you into adventures with a missionary doctor in Tanganyika (now Tanzania). The characters experience everyday problems in a jungle sort of way - with hilarious outcomes and practical applications.
The Witchdoctors and tribal superstition are causing trouble for the Jungle Doctor once again - but armed with the truth, the doctor and his staff are about to open the eyes of the local people to what is causing their problems - and it isn't curses and spells.
