Lois Carlson Bridges

Here is the electrifying story of Christian heroism that caught the world's imagination when first published in 1965 - the story of a California surgeon who took his family into the remote jungle of Congo to care for the sick and needy, only to be gunned down after being falsely accused of being a spy.

The horror of Dr. Paul Carlson's death on November 24, 1964, during a rescue attempt in Kisangani (then Stanleyville), evoked shocked reactions around the world. Lois Carlson Bridges, Paul's widow, traces the impact of his faith as he sought direction for his life, and the struggle the couple faced in choosing a life of hardship over the alluring of a wealthy suburban medical practice.
