The Yankee Officer & the Southern Belle: A Journey of Love across Africa by Nell Robertson ChinchenJoin The Yankee Officer and the Southern Belle Blog Tour – August 20-24, we’re hosting a book review blog tour for The Yankee Officer and the Southern Belle here on the Christian Focus Booknotes Blog. This brand new book recounts the vivid recollection of how God called Nell and Jack Chinchen from the comforts of their “perfect” life to a risky, lifelong journey they would never regret. More than forty years ago, the Chinchens arrived in Liberia, West Africa, as missionaries. They had left family, thriving ministries and a successful business. Their new life in the jungle would bring perils: tropical diseases, witch doctors, fire and even rebel invasion. Yet joy overflowed in their faithfulness to God’s call-training pastors, teaching children, pioneering medical ministry. Learn more here: LINK.

Eric T. Young reviews Isaiah by the Day – Head on over to the Reformed Bibliophile Blog ( to read Eric’s review Isaiah by the Day: A New Devotional Translation by Alec Motyer. Here’s a snippet of what Erich had to say:

This is no normal daily devotional. The commentary is edifying and comforting, but also corrective and challenging, and most of all centered on the Christ of Isaiah. The One who “was wounded for our transgressions…bruised for our iniquities.”

Mary Slessor – What is it like? is a great book to introduce your children to Mary Slessor and her important missions work in the jungles of Africa. I highly recommend this and the other nine books in the Little Lights series.
