This has to be one of the most inspirational and skillfully written accounts of missionary work. It reads like an adventure story, without being preachy or sentimental, but nevertheless raises insightful questions about what it means to lead a Christian life.

Although the main character is a Catholic, based on a real person, the appeal of the story transcends any particular system of belief. A great read, especially for Christmas or Easter.
