    Missionary Heroism Playlist: The Romance of Missionary Heroism: The Sailor-Missionary of Tierra del Fuego - John C. Lambert / 17 of 24 The Romance of Missionary Heroism by John C Lambert (1857-1917) The title page gives this book the subtitle, "True stories of the intrepid bravery and stirring adventures of missionaries with uncivilized man, wild beasts, and the forces of nature in all parts of the world." The thrilling accounts in this collection include stories of Jacob Chamberlain's medical ministry in India, the dangers faced by Alexander Mackay in Uganda, James Chalmers' work among the headhunters of New Guinea, John Paton's mission to the South Sea cannibals, and the Hawaiian queen Kapiolani's challenge to the gods of the volcano. "Romantic" in the sense that these brave missionaries faced the unknown, but never "romanticized" -- all sacrificed home and luxury, and many suffered the loss of family, fortune, and even their lives.
