Product Description

19th century explorer par excellence, David Livingstone entered Africa with intentions to trail blaze, evangelize, and civilize. He further hoped to eliminate the slave trade on both ocean coasts, a difficult task considering the British kept to the Atlantic. By the end of his life, he was hailed a British national hero for his winding jungle explorations and a failure as a missionary. Unbeknownst to him, his expeditions would glorify One greater than himself in the years to come...

Open this issue of Christian History & Biography to encounter a man who was a failed missionary, a lost explorer, and one of the monumental figures of the 1800's.

Failed missionary, lost explorer, and one of the monumental figures of the 1800s.

Inside this issue you'll find:

  • Discovering Livingstone - The man, the missionary, the explorer, the legend.
  • Also: Creatures Great and Small and Annoying
  • Also: David in the Lion's Den
  • On Expedition in Africa - The explorer encounters an exotic continent.
  • The Evil that Baffled Reformers - African slavery thwarted every effort to eradicate it.
  • The Man with Three "Wives" - Though Livingstone loved his family, he spent little time with them.
  • Also: Finding a Useful Wife
  • The Other Livingstone - The same traits that led the explorer to greatness, led him into the Zambezi disaster.
  • Accidental Missionary - Henry Stanley did more than find Livingstone-he followed him.
  • Great White Father - After Livingstone opened Africa, Western missionaries moved in by the thousands. Did they hurt or help Africans?
Issue 56 (Volume XVI (16), Number 4)

    I have been told about David Livingston years ago but forgot more than I remember. Lots more information about him as a man that God uses and shows us that God uses ordinary people to do His will. I enjoyed the article and can use it in teaching others about him.

    This book was very interesting and an eye-opener to the real person David Livinstone was. The honestly written articles proved that no man is perfect but can still be used of God. His love for the people of Africa and his love for adventure was inspiring! I really enjoyed the magazine and recommend it to anyone who loves history and learning again that people are flawed no matter who they are -- and God uses them inspite of it.
