Reviews mostly by Dr Peter Masters
This book is one which may cause those who work amongst today's hardened youngsters tears of joy as they read how the Lord used men and women who were prepared to sacrifice life in the civilised West to take the Gospel to some of the most heathen areas of Africa in the mid-20th Century. The manner in which the Lord honoured their faith and dedication to transform individuals and whole societies is very touching ' and challenging. 'The Good News Must Go Out' tells the remarkable and wonderful call and experiences of Margaret Laird ' of Baptist Mid-Missions USA ' in the Central African Republic. We learn of her unusual and unlikely call to missionary service. We read of her trials when she has nothing but the kitchen table to serve as an operating theatre, her hesitation to live among cannibals ' and the wonderful and genuine conversions of children she helped, who later took the Good News back to their own people and to others in great need of God's forgiveness and love. Each of the fifteen chapters is compelling and easy to read, and will be much enjoyed by children.
