    "An intriguing read about a culture of people whom seem so far apart from who we are, but once you really research you can see that you can learn a lot from how others live their lives. Really eye-opening read, and something that is hard to put down. "

    "Lords of the Earth is a non fiction book but I don't believe it is the book you want to read for missionaries. This book is more about a tribal group called Yali and talks about cannibalism and violence."

    "Well this book is based on Christianity and Christian faith it is not centered around missionaries.  it is more about the challenges that kids and teens in America face growing up as Christians and non-christians in our world today with topics such as sex and drugs. Therefore it is probably not the best choice for a book about missionaries."
