The Daring Heart of David Livingstone

Full Product Description

The captivating, untold story of the great explorer, David Livingstone: his abiding faith and his heroic efforts to end the African slave trade.

Saint? Missionary? Scientist? Explorer? The titles given to David Livingstone since his death are varied enough to seem dubious--and with good reason. In view of the confessions in his own journals, "saint" is out of the question. Even "missionary" is tenuous, considering he made only one convert. And despite his fame as a scientist and explorer, Livingstone left his most indelible mark on Africa in an arena few have previously examined: slavery.

His impact on abolishing what he called "this awful slave-trade" has been shockingly overlooked as the centerpiece of his African mission. Until now.

"The Daring Heart of David Livingstone" tells his story from the beginning of his time in Africa to the publicity stunt that saved millions after his death.

The Daring Heart of David Livingstone by Jay Milbrandt was published by Thomas Nelson Publishers in September 2014 and is our 7830th best seller. The ISBN for The Daring Heart of David Livingstone is 9780718035563.

"Jay Milbrandt's The Daring Heart of David Livingstone is a spectacular, ground-breaking, well-researched, splendidly told, and thoroughly gripping story. It was high time for someone to bring the wildly adventurous life of this courageous Christian hero to this generation. That Milbrandt also proclaims Livingstone as a successor to Wilberforce in vanquishing the horrors of the global slave-trade makes it all the sweeter." -  Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, and Miracles: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life.
