Customer Reviews for David Livingstone: Man of Prayer and Action
Review 1 for David Livingstone: Man of Prayer and Action
Wonderful, Concise, Accurate Resource
Date:June 15, 2014
Based upon Livingstone's actual journal, this book provides a fair treatment of this godly man and his life, unlike many others of his modern biographies. I found it to be very readable and inspiring in my own Christian life - to trust God more and to be ever so thankful for these great saints who have gone before us, "blazing a trail," so to speak, which was a physical trail as well, in the case of Livingstone trekking through Africa, with hardships reminiscent of the Apostle Paul. If it hadn't been for this man's courage and trust in Christ, he never would have had the fortitude to make it through all the dangers and trials in seeing Africa opened for Christ. Praise be to God!

Review 2 for David Livingstone: Man of Prayer and Action

I am sure that David Livingstone was a very interesting man, but this book does not reflect that. I was disappointed to see that someone who was a missionary and explorer in Africa could have his tale told in such a dry format.
