Amidst the millions of committed Christians in each generation, a handful rise to special prominence. Learn about their exciting and inspiring lives in the “Heroes of the Faith” series.
Born into poverty in Scotland and educated in medicine, he was first sent to South Africa in 1840 but quickly recognized the dearth of missionaries in the northern regions. From Angola to Mozambique to Victoria Falls, David Livingstone’s life and writings would ignite the flame of faith in the Dark Continent.
David Livingstone, known to most through that memorable quote: “Doctor Livingstone, I presume,” was not only a naturalist explorer, but also a missionary to Africa, hoping to share the Gospel to people who had not previously heard it, explore the unexplored regions of Africa, and to help abolish slavery, which was in rampant practice by the Portuguese.
The book takes us on a journey across Livingstone’s life, from cradle to grave, chronicling each notable milestone.
