This is a beautiful review from David Hare, a Bible translator in Africa, who is learning along with Janner what it means to be a hero.
Surprisingly, for me at least, I very rarely find myself in a place where I just want to leave. … But there are those days. … On those days I find it difficult to remind myself of the hope, the love, and the compassion I know I should be feeling. And it is those days that I need little reminders to press on. Sometimes the reminder comes from my wife, who miraculously does not often feel the despair on the same day I do. Often it comes in the form of a passage of Scripture, or a quote from a missionary whom I know has endured much worse than me. And then every once in a while, it comes from a kid’s book.
