Jungle Doctor Sees Red
Book 18 in the Jungle Doctor Series!
As the fiery red sun sets over the dry sands of Tanzania the Jungle Doctor is once again in the middle of danger and violence. He is definitely seeing red but he is there to bring the message of peace as well as medicine… but will anyone listen? As antibiotics are dropped from the air in a pilot’s pocket-handkerchief, desperate journeys end in tragedy and still others give their last strength to ensure life.
These examples of sacrifice are a sad but important illustration of the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jungle Doctor Sees Red is book 18 of the Jungle Doctor series! The thrilling adventures from missionary Dr. Paul White based in Mvumi hospital, Tanzania.
About the Author
Paul White was an Australian missionary doctor in Africa who learned to clothe his Bible teaching in stories with a timeless quality. When he returned home to Australia his stories were discovered and published to world-wide acclaim.
More About Dr. Paul White
Born in 1910 in Australia, Paul had Africa in his blood as long as he could remember. His father captured his imagination with stories of his experiences in the Boer War which left an indelible impression. His father died of meningitis in army camp in 1915, and he was left an only child without his father at five years of age. He inherited his father’s storytelling gift along with a mischievous sense of humor.
He committed his life to Christ as a sixteen year old school boy and studied medicine as the next step towards missionary work in Africa. Paul and his wife, Mary, left Sydney, with their small son, David, for Tanganyika in 1938. He had always thought of this as his life’s work. But Mary’s severe illness forced their early return to Sydney in 1941. Their daughter, Rosemary, was born while they were overseas.
Weekly Radio Broadcast
Within weeks of landing in Sydney, Paul was invited to begin a weekly radio broadcast. Its popularity spread throughout Australia as The Jungle Doctor broadcasts! The last of these was aired in 1985. The weekly scripts for these programs became the raw material for the Jungle Doctor books.
The books in part or whole have been translated into 109 languages.
Paul saw that although his plan to work in Africa for life was turned on its head, in God’s better planning he was able to reach more people by coming home than by staying. It was a great joy to meet people over the years who told him they were on their way overseas to work in mission because of the Jungle Doctor books!
