An Unforgettable Story of Primitive Jungle Treachery in the 20th Century

In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. Peace Child tells their unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology.

The peace child became the secret to unlocking a value system that existed through generations over centuries, possibly millenniums, of time. This analogy became a stepping-stone by which the gospel came into the Sawi culture and started both a spiritual and a social revolution from within.

With an epilogue updating how the gospel has impacted the Sawi people, Peace Child will inspire a new generation of readers who need to hear this unforgettable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating Christ in a meaningful way to those around us. Download and start listening now!

    " Don Richardson's account of his struggle to bring the message of the Gospel to a people who revered treachery and deceit so highly, they admired Judas for his betrayal of Christ. "

    " I'm reading this book for my Missions class in school, I just started it yesterday. I've been told it's the best book in the class. It's about a tribe of cannibles and the missionary who is used of God to change there way of life by bringing them the gospel. I love to read these types of books because it helps me to see the real reason why I pray for missionaries. These are real people and real places! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fraser Coltman | 1/23/2014

    " I read this years ago in Bible school. It amazed me how God provided a cultural key for sharing the story of Jesus with a primitive group of people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Hampton | 1/13/2014

    " This book tells of the amazing experiences a missionary family has working with tribal people. This book opens up your eyes to finding ways to share the Gospel with people in a way that they will understand it. There are opportunities within every culture to use that culture to share Christ, if you only look! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 1/3/2014

    " This is a great book. Written by a missionary about his struggles to get through to the cannibal tribes, and make them understand the love and mercy Jesus had toward them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin | 11/19/2013

    " Definitely interesting. I was amused at someone else pointing out how many exclamation points there are. I hadn't really noticed. Yes. There are lots of them. The story itself is amazing Worth the time to read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen L. | 9/26/2013

    " The true story of Missionary Don Richardson,his family and their adventure in reaching the Sawi people of Iran Jaya. Very adventurous! This man found a story in the Sawi legends that was an inroad for the gospel of Jesus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/19/2013

    " A little graphic in the first section but it sets the stage for what kind of civilization these missionaries were dealing with. Really an amazing book. "

    " Another read from Africa. The language style reminded me of textbooks I read in my college Anthropology classes. The images painted were graphic and violent at times, but fairly PG. This definitely gives insight into the trials many Missionaries faced. "

    " Another great book about missions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 8/11/2012

    " Incredible missionary story that explains how Don Richardson used tribal customs (guesome as they were) as redemptive analogies in leading a whole primitive, cannibilistic people group to Christ, the ultimate Peace Child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua Hulin | 3/8/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 2/23/2012

    " I have a hard time giving 5 stars to a book. I was grossed out in the first chapter where the one guy was fattened with friendship for slaughter. Then you get sort of used to it. It was amazing how much the people changed when they were introduced to Christ. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 9/23/2011

    " Excellent reading choice and a good example of how a sovereign God is able to put traces of the truths of His gospel in any culture, even in one untouched by civilization! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 1/24/2011

    " This was fascinating. It was the story of missionary couple who went to New Guinea (small island above australia) to teach the Gospel of Christ to the cannibal headhunters. Highly recommend. I own this book if anyone wants to borrow it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 1/12/2011

    " Fantastic and inspiring story. This really gives insight into another culture and its struggles. Not necessarily the best written book but the story carries it along and is definitely worth your time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 2/14/2010

    " Beautiful book! Missionary work is hard and grueling and might go for decades with no measurable success. Although at this point in my life I am having trouble with the whole idea of missions work. I am leaning more towards the idea that we ought to just leave people alone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rissa | 1/24/2010

    " I'd give this book ten stars if I could. It was awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisa | 12/11/2009

    " I was amazed how God speaks to all people in the way they would understand and be able, in turn, to respond to God. This story showed me how God is truly redemptive and significant to each culture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooks | 11/18/2009

    " I teared up during this book! It was that amazing! The message of the Gospel looks different in every culture, but the great thing is that it is universal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 11/16/2009

    " A great, easy read on missions in Papua New Guinea. Richardson tells the story of his life and ministry and how God worked in the hearts of the tribal people. "
