Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind

I have to admit I have not listened to very many audiobooks before and boy, have I been missing out! I downloaded this book from Christianaudio.com as part of a review for Christian Focus 4 Kids. I put it on my MP3 player and listened to it while cleaning, working out, and checking my email. I've never "read" a book so fast!

Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind by Australian missionary, Paul White is the story of part of  his time as a doctor in Tanzania. He faced many trials such as malaria, a dysentery epidemic and a troublemaker who stole medicine and distributed marijuana. Although overworked and exhausted, the doctor takes advantage of every teachable moment to share truths of the Bible in ways the natives understand.

I really liked that each character had a distinct voice so I could easily tell who was speaking. The fact files at the end were also very helpful in giving more information about the author, Tanzania and the epidemic they faced. I love missionary stories and this one is definitely worth listening to!

*Please note: I received this book free from Christian Focus 4 Kids as part of their Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind Audiobook Review Blog Tour. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  1. Taryn,

    Thanks for being a part this blog tour, which was a first of its kind for the Christian Focus 4 Kids blog. I really got into audiobooks earlier this year and was surprised how many books I could finish in a week, when I listened instead of reading. Looking forward to working with you on future book review blog tours.
