Jungle Fire

by Bruce Porterfield

The many instances in this book have been drawn from the experiences of many missionaries. Some of the heartaches, clashes of ideas concerning methods of mission boards, love affairs, raw jungle life in reaching savage tribes, the defeats and victories, have been the realities of many new and experienced servants of God. Some of the methods and practices of a number of mission boards and their personnel are clearly seen in this novel. However, it is not the author's intention to single out any one organization while writing about some of the things that commonly occur. The inward struggles and outward circumstances that Brian Allmand faces are the very things that many new missionaries have come up against. These or similar experiences have crushed and defeated many well intentioned missionaries because methods and principles became insurmountable barriers to them. Brian is one of the few missionaries with firm convictions who is willing to challenge what appears to be man-guided rules. He gets into all kinds of difficulties for speaking out on his convictions. Was it worth it? The results in principle of his convictions have also been those of a few in true life.

Twice Burned

by Bruce Porterfield

Bruce Porterfield spent three terms in Bolivia with the New Tribes Mission. Much of his time there was spent with other missionaries in seeking to make a friendly contact with primitive tribes in remote areas of the country. The story of this work is told in his book, Commandos for Christ. In his second book, ["jungle Fire," which is also available in this library] Porterfield uses the novel as a means of revealing much truth about missionary work, the needs, problems and opportunities faced. In his latest book, Twice Burned, he again turns to the novel as a means of clarifying the issues between ecumenical and mass-meeting evangelism compared to the New Testament pattern of Gospel preaching and church planting.

The Case of the Backward Mule

by Erle Stanley Gardner

She was as touchy as a trainload of nitroglycerine.

The Great War and Modern Memory

It is also about the literary dimensions of the trench experience itself. Indeed, if the book had a subtitle, it would be something like "An Inquiry into the Curious Literariness of Real Life." <P><P> Winner of the National Book Award
