Menace from cannibals! The Scot John Paton (1824–1907) faced this exceptional missionary situation when he began to pass on the Gospel in the New Hebrides in the Pacific after he had been decisively influenced in his poor but God-fearing parental home.
Having been in acute danger for years, he had to leave the first mission station on Tanna under dramatic circumstances. He found his new field of activity on Aniwa. Paton was known in his time as "the man with one thought" - the gospel for the unproselytized peoples of the South Seas!
His faith experiences and mission perspective are still relevant today. This extraordinarily impressive autobiography is one of the classics in missionary literature.
