The true story of how the Gospel came to a strangely-prepared, demon-fearing people. The book graphically describes the suspicious, hostile tribes; the struggle against climate, disease, leeches; the leaps in empathy and imagination; the dark forces of spiritual oppression – and the customs. Astonishingly, the missionaries discovered that the Mangyan (Philippines) were prepared: the gospel of Christ did not fall on deaf ears. Today, half a century on, the self-governing Mangyan church flourishes.
