- DESCRIPTION -
The saga of a native Christian who became a missionary to the native Hawaiian people.
The true story of a man who lived the first part of his life as a primitive blind native Hawaiian who got exposed to the Gospel by the early missionaries and became one of the most well known native preachers at the time. This story is centered around the early 1800's and the amazing transformation he underwent.
The pioneers of the Christian mission sent by the American Board in 1819, to the Sandwich Islands, early found among the thousands of their degraded inhabitants, a poor blind man, almost destitute of clothing, habitation, and friends. He was born at Waikapu, the central part of the low isthmus between the two divisions of the mountainous island of Maui, probably about the year 1785. His barbarous mother, following many of her unnatural and murderous countrywomen, attempted to bury him alive in his infancy; but he was rescued by a relative; and surviving the ravages of pestilence, war, and private violence, he reached the years of maturity before being exposed to the Gospel.
The book holds many deep insights into the early Hawaiians and the missionaries that came to the islands. It is an amazing and sometimes subtle view into how the Spirit of God can transform a life and how at times the stiffness of religion established can unknowingly hold back that work.
