Full Product Description
‘David Livingstone: A New Assessment of His Life and Impact’ is a revolutionary, new biography based on previously unknown documents that help to piece together what David was actually like as a person.
“He was an extraordinary character … unbelievably bad at personal relationships, at least with white people, with infinite self-belief, courage and restlessness. He was also a complete failure as a missionary, and so became an explorer and campaigner against the slave trade, hoping to save African souls that way instead.”
Read deeper into the mind and life of the Victorian legend through the discovery of letters and journals he left behind, that have been read for the very first time through the science of ‘spectral imaging’. These fascinating documents about Livingstone’s life and his personal struggles, along with other sources visually and descriptively reawaken the man behind the modern Christian icon for curious readers to explore the legacy and the life of the great David Livingstone.
Stephen Tomkins has a PhD in Church History at London Bible College and a contributing editor to the Ship of Fools website. He is about to publish a satirical Church history book with Scripture Union.
David Livingstone by Stephen Tomkins was published by Lion Hudson in January 2013 and is our 23541st best seller. The ISBN for David Livingstone is 9780745955681.

'He was an extraordinary character' according to biographer Stephen Tomkins 'unbelievably bad at personal relationships, at least with white people, with infinite self-belief, courage and restlessness. He was also a complete failure as a missionary, and so became an explorer and campaigner against the slave trade, hoping to save African souls that way instead. He was a flawed but indomitable idealist.'
Fascinating new evidence about Livingstone's life, and his struggles have come to light in the letters and journals he left behind, now accessible to us for the first time through spectral imaging. These form a large part of the source material for this excellent biography, which provides an honest and balanced account of the real man behind the Victorian icon.
