Thank God for Charles Marsh’s Strange Glory . Ann Neumann, Bookforum. Marsh displays both how strangely human and how gloriously blessed Bonhoeffer’s life was. The theological seeds that gave rise to America’s Civil Rights Movement were scattered in Germany a generation before they began to bear fruit here. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Patheos. A biographical triumph. Right up to the end, is by his readers’ side, clarifying and clearing away the too-pretty details that always accrue to a saintly life.

Othniel Charles Marsh (October 29, 1831 – March 18, 1899) was an American paleontologist

Othniel Charles Marsh (October 29, 1831 – March 18, 1899) was an American paleontologist. Marsh was one of the preeminent scientists in the field; the discovery or description of dozens of new species and theories on the origins of birds are among his legacies. Born into a modest family, Marsh was able to afford higher education thanks to the generosity of his wealthy uncle George Peabody. After graduating from Yale College in 1860 he traveled the world, studying anatomy, mineralogy and geology

I have read this missionary biography and the sequel several times. It was originally published in 1970. It is always a challenge and inspiration to read about those who worked amongst Muslims in places where the Gospel had been unknown.

Charles Marsh and his wife defied popular Christian opinion and went to Algeria as newlyweds. More importantly, they went as missionaries,

This book tells how it is possible to reach with the gospel those whom many regard as "too hard for God!" It tells of God's faithfulness and power, of His many and varied ways of working: ways which are not always our ways. It tells of His victory in Muslim lives, and some methods by which the Gospel is spread in Eastern lands.

This book is very relevant in our day as many Christians turn away from traditional missionary evangelism and instead expect dreams and visions to provide the breakthroughs. I have even heard suggestions that these lands are impossible to evangelise, which is the same as saying that something is "too hard for God." This was, indeed, the main premise of the popular book The Insanity of God. The author in that book decided that the fields were impossible and turned to journalism to keep people in the West informed and praying....but action is also needed. God has chosen the preaching and teaching of His Word as the method to be used, regardless of the dangers.

Marsh faced a similar backlash on heading to the field with his young bride. The terrible trials once they got there, including a civil war, didn't diminish their zeal. They didn't retreat when they saw people poisoning each other due to ignorance about medicine and general hygiene. They didn't leave when they were threatened or suffered terrible hardship at the hands of people who hated their God. They were committed to the people of the land and loved them as if they were their own nation.

This book is a 4.5 star. There are a few style issues with the writing which jumps around a bit. The author has substituted foreign names for himself and his wife in an attempt to give glory to God, but it makes the narrative a little tricky in places as it is in the third person. I also didn't think he should have used the Bible passage about "hating our father, mother, sister" etc as a reason for leaving his wife and children in England and returning to the field alone. I believe the passage is about priorities-that our first priority should always be God. There is a difference between our personal relationship with God and the work He has called us to. A husband and father should not place his ministry above his family. I recognise that it was common practice at the time this book was written and that a lot of the conveniences we take for granted now were not available then.

I will be reading the sequel again shortly and will review that separately. This book is highly recommended especially for those considering missionary service.

A very inspiring read of a man and his wife who devoted their lives to telling Algerians about the gospel often at great cost...highly recommend for all. his daughter's book is also excellent.
