Unafraid Of The Sacred Forest Pb
Full Product Description
If Ronaldo and Rossana Lidorio were expecting a slightly Westernised African state when they went to the north of Ghana as missionaries, such preconceptions were soon dispelled. They met formidable cultural and language barriers, illiteracy and human sacrifice.
They entered a society where there are only six days in a week and no concept of a year. Polygamy was seen as a virtue, sisters were regularly swapped and the most powerful person in the village was not the tribal chief but the Witch Doctors who had been practicing their art for thousands of years.
One of the themes of this story of modern missionary endeaveour is the counter-cultural theme of 'sacrifice'. Ronald and Rossana built upon the foundations of others who prepared the way, and worked alongside similarly committed people.
In this previously un-reached area, there are now 17 churches, and 81 church leaders have been trained. The Konkoma tribes are now sending their own evangelists to other areas, bringing the Good News of Christ to more people.
Unafraid Of The Sacred Forest Pb by Ronaldo Lidorio was published by Christian Focus Publications in February 2007 and is our 55838th best seller. The ISBN for Unafraid Of The Sacred Forest Pb is 9781845502355.

Unafraid of the Sacred ForestMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
This is the story of mission to the Konkomba of Northern Ghana. Working on the foundations of others, Ronaldo and Rossana Lidorio, a Brazilian WEC couple, have worked sympathetically with the native culture, to bring Christianity to this remote area of West Africa. This is a fascinating story of the working of the Holy Spirit, enabling the missionaries to plant 17 churches in this previously unreached area. Quite a slim book, but an inspiring read; I felt humbled by my comparatively lukewarm faith compared to these new converts.
