KIRKUS REVIEW

The charge often made in Communist circles that Americans are money-mad, and that in their relations to foreign countries they are imperialistic exploiters can find no more effective refutation than the story of the work of medical missionaries as told by one of the most eminent among them. David Livingstone and Albert Schweitser in Africa, Dr. and Dr. Forman in India, Dr. Dodd and Dr. Shepard in Turkey, Dr. Parker and Dr. Co in China are among those whose life work is described by Dr. Hume. It is a fascinating and heart-warming story. As Alan Gregg says in his foreword: ""If you seek examples of the spiritual awards of medicine, they are in this book. If you doubt that love out fear, read it. If you want models of how to survive when you are in a threatened , they are here. You may agree that the time for adventure has not passed."" The book deals with Pre medical missions, but there is no sectarian emphasis. A book to pushed.
