In an interview chapter of the book “Stand: A Call for the Endurance of the Saints”, Helen Roseveare was asked who is her missionary heroes. She named Isobel Kuhn to be influential to her. Reading her account on that book, I was impressed by her missionary adventures. And by pointing out named Isobel Kuhn, I got interested with this person. It’s a good thing that God didn’t suppress it long enough that my interest faded away. While having my monthly digging at BookSale (a second hand/used book store in the Philippines), I found Isobel Kuhn’s autobiography (published by Moody Press) at the display rack of one of its stall. For P15.00 (incredibly cheap) this 160 pages book chronicles her life of skepticism, Bible college days, meeting her lifetime partner, etc. As I read her story, you can easily relate because it closely resembles doubts and dilemmas of our time particularly what young women go through. The autobiography is inspiringly moving read. Check it out in BookSale or in the Internet.
