Restless Missionary, The
Robinson, Virgil
   

The Restless Missionary chronicles the extraordinary adventures of Joseph Wolff. At the tender age of eight, while listening intently to his father, a rabbi, discuss "the glories of the coming Kingdom," Joseph became very excited. His curiosity is piqued when he learns that the Messiah was Jesus contradicting what he learned from his fate. This book is Wolff's story.
The indomitable Joseph Wolff, armed with a Hebrew Bible and an unquenchable thirst for the truth, begins a journey that includes a religious conversion. Punctuated by life threatening situations, each chapter seems to test his new found faith. A defiant Wolff is determined to spread "The Word" despite others who encourage him, for his own safety, to reconsider his mission.
