As a Christian, this book is really excellent. What a man of god David Livingston was. His tenacity in taking the gospel to Africa along with his medical expertise and precision in noting geography, geology, flora, fauna, etc., set the standard for opening up a continent.
Hid fight against the slave trade and desire to bring not only the good news to Africa, but more productive ways to earn a living so that many of the inter tribal battles would cease.
One of the most inspiring books I have read in some time, well worth anyone's time to learn about this remarkable man.
