It is about genocides practiced today, against helpless people - in the name of God. These ‘benevolent’ destroyers, most of them from the United States, call themselves Christians. Since the very first sighting of Indians in the New World, the exploitation of indigenous tribal peoples by resource-hungry invaders has amounted to a persecution of the most ruthless and relentless kind, including the theft of the Indians’ land, the stripping of their forests, the destruction of their cultures, and the wholesale enslavement of their populace. This exploitation continues without abatement by the evangelizing ambassadors of Christianity - the missionaries. In this powerful book, Norman Lewis takes us among the Indians of Central and Latin America, Indochina, and the Pacific Islands. We journey in bandit country, in the deep forests and the mountains. He describes the vividness of these threatened cultures, brilliantly evoking the color and sound of the people and the landscape. With deceptive simplicity he puts straight questions to the missionaries, and the conclusions that he draws from their answers are uncompromising and demand attention. This is an outstanding new work from one of the best writers of our age. Very Good In Dustjacket With Slightly Faded Spine. Bookseller Inventory # 13763
