Product description

Review

This is more than a dramatic account of the brutal murder of missionary Edmund Fabian in Papua New Guinea in 1993. Rather, it is the account of decades of challenging work to bring the Bible to the Nabak people of that island, providing a host of details that bring to life the joys and challenges of Bible translation amongst people whose language has never been reduced to writing. Yet the story does turn, in many ways, on the murder of Edmund and the choices his widow Grace made in the ensuing months and years. And thus it becomes an account of the outworking of the gospel itself: forgiveness, faithfulness, joy in the midst of suffering, and the sheer triumph of God s outrageous grace. --D. A. Carson, Research Professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, award winning author of over fifty books including The Gagging of God, founding chair of Gramcord.

I was spellbound reading Grace Fabian s story of her husband s murder and the redemption God wrought through this tragedy. One thing impresses me above all else. Grace and her family are anything but shallow Christians given to sensationalism. Instead, they are obviously firmly rooted in the soil of Scripture and recognize that God is sovereign over all things, including the temptations of our adversary. In the caldron of her suffering, Grace has come to know ever more fully that nothing can befall us without first passing through the filter of God s love. --Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the Bible Answer Man Broadcast

Grace Fabian uses words and emotions like a vast array of vibrant colors and paints on the pages of her book the most vivid pictures of God at work in the midst of violent murder and unspeakable reconciliation. You will laugh, you will cry and you will praise God for His outrageous grace. --Russ Hersman, Senior Vice President, Wycliffe Bible Translators --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Grace is originally from a farming community in upstate New York and the daughter of a pastor. She served with Wycliffe Bible Translators, first in Mexico and the last thirty-five years in the island nation of Papua New Guinea. Now Grace resides in Pennsylvania where she speaks, teaches and writes, hoping that others will be inspired to join in the work of reaching Bibleless people groups around the world. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
