From the author of Peace Child, Don Richardson, comes Lords of the Earth, an unforgettable story of missionary tenacity and zeal that sold over 100,000 copies in the hardcover edition. Engulfed in the darkness of Irian Jaya's Snow Mountains live the Yali: naked cannibals who call themselves 'lords of the earth.' Yet in terror and bondage they serve women-hating, child-despising gods. Missionary Stan Dale dared to enter their domain. Lords of the Earth is the story of Dale, his wife, his companions, and thousands of Yali tribesmen, all swept together in a maelstrom of agony and blood that climaxes in a dramatic, unexpected ending. For those captivated by Don Richardson's 'can't-put-it-down' style in Peace Child, Lords of the Earth will be moving in a new and different way.… (mais)

He & his wife with infant son went into the swamplands of Netherlands, New Guinea to bring the gospel to the Sawi, stone-age headhunters. He found how specially chosen infant could be offered to bring peace between warring tribes. During his early years he met Stan & Pat Dale working similar to his, but with a different tribe. As he learned of the incredible series of events it took to reach the Yali, he decided to write the entire story in this book.

This book gave me an increased burden to pray for people groups still unreached with the gospel, and to seek out opportunities to fund missions in those places.

It took a couple of chapters before I really got into the book, but I really liked that Richardson shared the historical account from the Yali perspective first, then added in the missionary perspective. I think understanding the beliefs and customs of the Yali really helped me to see why future events happened the way they did.

My only complaints would be that there are several typos, particularly with commas (appearing where they shouldn't, or not appearing where they should, making the reading a little more difficult). Also, the chapter lengths are very inconsistent; some chapters are 8 pages, others are 30 pages - this makes it difficult to gauge how long it will take me to get through each chapter and schedule my reading time accordingly. (I hate having to stop in the middle of a chapter!)

It was worth the read, though! ( )

Engulfed in the darkness of Irian Jaya's Snow Mountains live the Yali, naked cannibals who call themselves lords of the earth. Yet, in spite of their boldness, they live in terror and bondage to the women-hating, child-despising gods they serve. Missionary Stan Dale dared to enter their domain and be an instrument to change their future. Peace Child author, Don Richardson, tells the story of Dale, his wife, his companions, and thousands of Yali tribesmen in Lords of the Earth. This unforgettable tale of faithful determination and zeal against overwhelming odds brings unlikely characters together in a swirl of agony and bloodshed climaxing in a dramatic, unexpected ending. Readers will find their perceptions of how God moves enlarged and inspired by this classic story. For parents and youth leaders looking for real-life role models for the new generation of young people, you will want to meet the Dales in Lords of the Earth.
