Product description


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

Product Description

That morning, a beautiful day on the tropical island of Papua New Guinea, Grace Fabian brimmed in excitement over the idea that she and her husband, Edmund, were close to finishing their missionary project, the translation of the Nabak New Testament. But, while in the midst of translating the love chapter, 1 Corinthians 13, someone murdered Edmund.

In this memoir, Grace narrates the couples life storyof their separate journeys before they met, to their shared life as missionaries. She tells the story of how she and her four children wrestled with grief and disorientation after Edmunds murder. She speaks of the familys quest for answers and of the difficulty of meshing two different worldsthe culture of the Nabak people in Papua New Guinea and of her Christian heritage from the United States.

Grace shares how she faced the challenges of forgiving the murderer, having rocks thrown at their home, receiving eviction notices, and navigating a court case in a foreign country. Outrageous Grace shows how Grace and her children discovered that God orchestrated an amazing story of redemption and forgiveness.
