Ernie Steury's remarkable life and ministry as a medical missionary in Tenwek, Kenya, is recounted in this compelling biography. A humble Indiana farm boy, Ernie built one of the most successful medical mission facilities in the world. Ernie's influence, however, went beyond tending to physical needs. Not content merely to heal bodies, Ernie sought to change lives as well through the ministry of the Gospel. Through the story of Ernie Steury, readers will be inspired to follow his example as dedicated servants of a loving, living God who is anxious to show the world what great things He can accomplish with an individual totally committed to Him.
Gregg Lewis is a freelance writer and author of many articles and books. He is also senior writer for Marriage Partnership magazine. He and his wife, Debi, and their five children live in Georgia.
Fawn Stabler5 Stars Out Of 5September 11, 2009Fawn StablerI read this book and was in awe. I am Ernie Stuery's great niece. My mom, Sharon Goldwood (Stevens) was his niece. The book was wonderfully written and had such an impact on me. Ernie and Sue's dedication and committment was a great inspiration to me. I don't think I've ever met them since they were usually out of the States, but I plan on trying to connect with Sue or maybe her daughter here in Fort Wayne. I truly wish I would have had an opportunity to meet him.
Debbie @ Genre Reviews5 Stars Out Of 5July 12, 2009Debbie @ Genre ReviewsThis book is an interesting, engaging biography of Ernie Steury. The author is an excellent storyteller, vividly portraying Ernie Steury's life and personality through dramatic, amazing, and funny stories. The book does cover some of his childhood and early adulthood, but mainly focuses on his work in Kenya.Much information is included about the local culture and the problems local customs created during medical treatment, like the superstitions about death, blood, and spirits and the practices of female circumcision and infanticide. However, the living conditions at the hospital weren't as primitive as in some missionary books.Most of the surgery scenes are not highly graphic, but the few that are might make people queasy if they get queasy watching TV surgery scenes.The book quotes letters and articles written by Dr. Steury to show the emotional stresses and ups and downs of missionary work. It also includes quotes from family, friends, and staff. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone interested in medical missions or in rural Kenya.Different Time, Different Place Book Reviewshttp://differenttimedifferentplace.blogspot.com/
Janice Shaw Crouse, Ph.D.5 Stars Out Of 5September 4, 2007Janice Shaw Crouse, Ph.D.This is an inspiring and challenging book. Young people need to read stories like this about heroes whose accomplishments are significant and whose faith is steady in the face of discouragement and difficult circumstances. This is a beautifully written book that I couldn't put down. Compelling and gripping account of an extraordinary life!
Mary B. DeRoss5 Stars Out Of 5August 20, 2007Mary B. DeRossI could not put this book down. It challenged me so much in my commitment to God. Dr. Steury truly died to himself, picked up his cross and followed Christ. I could see Jesus clearly in his life and within the pages of this book.
