When US missionary Davey Jank starts a new life in the Amazon jungle among a remote tribe, he enters a world where witchcraft and shamanism are the trade of the powerful, and where fear drives a timid and isolated society to acts of desperation and the brink of despair. Davey, Marie and the others who later join them struggle to decipher and learn the unwritten language of the tribe. Within a few years the Wilos are enthusiastically reading and writing in their own language for the first time. But they want more. They want to know what 'God's Talk' says. They hope that there is something more to life than the vicious cycle of fearing and appeasing the evil spirits at every turn. Finally the Wilos get what they have so long been waiting for: God's Word, taught in their own language. God had been preparing their hearts for this very message.
"Reflects the hardships, frustrations, complications, fun and sometimes bewilderment of living among a people so greatly different than your own. I highly recommend it.""--Larry Brown, CEO, New Tribes Mission (11/30/2010)
