Product Description

A Leopard Tamed opens a window into a wholly other world. Vandevort, an American missionary who lived in the Sudan for 13 years, was the first to translate the Bible forthe Nuer people. She received invaluable assistance from a native boy who taught her the language, eventually becoming a Bible teacher himself. In this special 50th anniversary edition (with a newly discovered epilogue and new introduction from Valerie Elliot Shepard, daughter of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot), we find an account of missions that was too honest for many in 1968. It is a book ahead of its time. Fifty years later, in a world that yearns for authenticity, we can finally understand Eleanor Vandevort'squestions--and even try to answer them.

Publisher's Description

Introduction by Elisabeth Elliot New Introduction By Valerie Elliot Shepard The story of A Leopard Tamed is set in Nasir, a tiny village on the banks of the Sobat River in the Sudan. It reads like the story of another world, of another time--but it is very much of our world, our time. The author is an American missionary who lived with the Nuer tribe in Nasir for thirteen years. A Leopard Tamed is the vivid, exciting description of what those years were like for her. Eleanor became friendly with Kuac, a small boy whose burning ambition was "to do the work of God." He proved invaluable in helping her. He taught her his language, which enabled her to translate the Bible for the Nuer people for the first time. After she discovered he was a born teacher, he even led Bible classes for her. Although Kuac is the central figure in this engrossing story, it is also the story of the whole Nuer tribe. This book stirs the reader with strange tribal customs--such as the brutal rites initiating young boys into manhood; a typical native wedding; detailed description of housing, cooking, child-bearing, and so on. The author transports us to a land "that lies flat on its back, rolled out like a pie crustand crisscrossed with a network of footpaths linking village to village. The path is the highway in this land, covering hundreds and hundreds of miles, the imprint of a people who walk in order to communicate and who must communicate in order to live."
