Daktar / Diplomat in Bangladesh.

The story of Viggo Olsen. A wonderfully written account of his journey through life, and missionary journey as well. A story with parallel’s to those of Saul’s in the Holy Bible. Born in a highly moralistic family, Mr. Olsen was raised in a way he would later come to appreciate.  Nonetheless, his early years of life were filled with agnosticism. Through his college years, he and his wife Joan set themselves on proving Christianity false. Denying that Christ was the Savior of humanity, and the very fact of his historical existence. Yet the very vigor with which they fought against truth, they came to know it. From darkness, they came into life.

I’ve only read 39 pages [7:12 pm, I plan to finish the remaining 310 pages tonight], and it’s already an amazing, wonderfully written piece of literature – and the uplifting story of a Christian Missionary.

Although this novel is out of print, it’s still available at book outlets on BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com. Ridiculously great prices, and sometimes brand-new. Can’t beat that.

About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
