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.
As the fiery red sun sets over the dry sands of Tanzania the Jungle Doctor is once again in the middle of danger and violence. He is definitely seeing red but he is there to bring the message of peace as well as medicine... but will anyone listen? As antibiotics are dropped from the air in a pilot's pocket-handkerchief, desperate journeys end in tragedy and still others give their last strength to ensure life. These examples of sacrifice are a sad but important illustration of the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
