"On every continent, in every nation, God is at work in and through the lives of believers. From the streets of Amsterdam to remote Pacific islands to the jungles of Ecuador and beyond, each international adventure that emerges is a dramatic episode that could be directed only by the hand of God. Engulfed in the darkness of Irian Jaya's Snow Mountains lived the Yali--canniblas who called themselves "lords of the earth." Yet in terror and bondage they served women-hating, child-despising gods, rendering fearful obedience to harsh edicts and even executing their children. Missionary Stan Dale dared to enter the domain of this Stone Age people, embarking on a fateful course that would swiftly bring him into bloody life-or-death conflict with the Yalis' "Kembu spirits and the complex religion they sustained. Only God could have brought about the stunning, unexpected result.

DON RICHARDSON, the bestselling author of" Peace Child, Eternity in Their Hearts", and "Heaven Wins", has been studying the Muslim world for more than 30 years. He and his late wife, Carol, spent 15 years among the Sawi, a Stone Age tribe of Irian Jaya. Don designed an alphabet suited to the Sawi language, authored 19 primers, taught the tribesmen to read in their native tongue, and translated the entire New Testament. More than half of the Sawi accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Since 1977, Don has served as ambassador-at-large for World Team, a mission organization. Don holds an honorary doctorate of literature from Biola University in La Mirada, California, is an ordained pastor, and speaks at more than 40 church conferences each year.
