arrival of a group of men whom they loved, but had never metsavage Stone Age killers,
men now known to all the world as Aucas.
The circumstances of the death of these men are by now known throughout the world in one of
the great missionary adventure stories of modern times. But this is the first account of the whole
life of one of thema life that, though hid with Christ in God, was in part revealed in some of the
most poignant and moving spiritual writings of our time. Shadow of the Almighty is a
tremendous biography of an adventurous and inspirational life.
