BEST 'READ ALOUD' BOOK ON JOHN G. PATON

02/10/2018

Hi
I have wanted to read about the missionary John Paton for a long time. I am thinking of reading a biography of him out loud to others at church on Sunday afternoons. Would you recommend his autobiography or a biography and if a biography which one? The listening audience would be adults and children. Thanks. Aric



Aric,

Thank you for your very good question. Your project sounds very edifying.

There are 3-4 good books on John G.Payton but I am not sure that his own autobiography published by BANNER OF TRUTH is still not the best.His unforgettable description of walking off to college and saying goodbye to his godly father is unique and very powerful.

Your Book Servant,
