5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey Beyond Compare, 29 Jun 2007
This review is from: Journey to Murder (Paperback)
I knew what to expect when I read this book, an honest, serious and at times funny account of Michael and Jo Pollard's Christian ministries/travels around Eastern Europe leading up to the tragic events of August 4th 1997. After many years of crossing boarders armed with bibles, medicines, toys, clothes for the poor and more importantly God's word, they found themselves on the receiving end of a brutal attack from the very people they were trying to help. Little did they know that the "God who doesn't make mistakes" would use this tragedy to do his work and promote his love. Jo's statement to the world press from a hospital bed stating that she bore no malice towards their attackers and that she was praying that they too might become Christians captured the hearts and minds of the world media. After suffering so much, her faith never faltered and she belived that it was for a greater purpose.

This book is a joy to read. You become enthralled in the personal journeys you are taken on and humbled by how there are unrecognised people doing amazing work, risking their lives to do God's work. This account is not a celebration of life nor death, it is instead a celebration of how God doesn't make mistakes and how HE is in control of our lives, giving us the highest reward for our love towards him. A truly inspirational account.

I agree with these comments, having read the book myself and through having known Michael and Jo personally. Having heard Michael's accounts of their visits to Eastern Europe on many occasions, I can testify to their love of the people they visited and the God whom they were serving. Michael lost his life in that great service, but is now with his Saviour, and so now is Jo, having died on 11 Nov 2008. I remember them both fondly.
