9781845505394: With Two Hands: True Stories of God at work in Ethiopia (Hidden Heroes)

Why would a crippled old man wait by the side of the road every day for twenty years? Why would a slave and a witch doctor walk for three days to find a man called Jesus? Why would a lame man purposely walk to a tribe where he knew he could be killed? Sixteen captivating true episodes from the ministry of missionary Dick McLellan in Ethiopia, as well as many national missionaries, show the power of God in the midst of darkness. One by one the people declared, "With this hand I renounce the devil and all his works! With this hand I embrace my Savior Jesus Christ! All I am and all I have! Two hands!" First in the Hidden Heroes series of true missionary stories for children.

Inspirational stories for preteen (ages 9-12) and suitable for read-alouds for younger children. Evangelical Protestant Christian missionaries take the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who then take it to their own people. Biographical true accounts bring the miraculous work of the gospel to life through personal testimonies of historical figures.

Review:

We just finished reading With Two Hands at the dinner table after family worship times. What a great story. Several chapters had me tearing up with joy! Praise the Lord!  ~John Crotts, pastor and author of  Loving the Church: God's People Flourishing in God's Family

"I believe no Christian's life is "just normal," because each is a God-story waiting to be told in heaven someday. In the meantime, I thank God for With Two Hands! where I get a preview of one of those heavenly stories. Thank you, Rebecca Davis, for giving us and our children a glimpse of God's work through the life of Dick McLellan and the hidden heroes of the Ethiopian church." (NoŽl Piper ~ Author and Wife of John Piper)

"I loved reading With Two Hands! My heart was touched by the wonderful stories of how God has worked and continues to work through His servants in Ethiopia." (A. A. Baker ~ Assistant to the President, Child Evangelism Fellowship)

"This is a very readable and an excellent introduction to mission for children. It is also a reminder to adults that we serve an amazing God, and maybe need a renewed vision for the gospel being saved where we are." (Evangelical Times)

"They sacrificed everything, sometimes their lives, that the unreached in Ethiopia's forgotten corners of the harvest field might know the love of the Lord. Read this book. Share these stories with your children. Pass it on to your friends. It will touch your heart and theirs, challenge the depth of your commitments, and energize your witness to the greatness of Lord Jesus." (Bark Fahnestock ~ SIM Missionary, Ethiopia)
