This book is about two priests: one a German and the other a Papua New Guinean from the Rabaul area of New Britain. Fr Bernard Franke arrived from Germany in 1928 when he was 26 years old, full of missionary zeal, and spent the following 50 years in New Britain. Archbishop Benedict To Varpin grew up in the Tolai society with all the traditional tribal customs. Both were wonderful men who exemplify St Paul's message about the importance of love. Fr Franke, an expatriate, viewed the people of New Britain and their culture from the outside looking in, whereas Benedict To Varpin, a Tolai man, viewed the culture from the inside looking out. Benedict To Varpin's grandfather, To Momulue, was one of a group of fierce warriors who confronted the first missionaries who arrived at Volavolo. Then, when they sang the Te Deum after they landed, the warriors changed their fierce opposition to a welcome, and gave them land for a mission. By combining these two life stories, we get a book that overlaps both their lives with much information on mission endeavours in Papua New Guinea, and makes for very interesting reading.
