James S. Gribble was a "pioneer missionary" in the deepest and truest sense of that term. In his short ministry James Gribble accomplished more than many accomplish in a long life-time. Thanks to his wife, Florence Gribble, we have this detailed telling of his life with deep personal understanding. May the labor of love which she has bestowed upon this book be graciously used of God to complete the evangelization of Oubangui-Chari, and thus fulfill the vision of one who in that land prayed, ministered, suffered and died with "hope undaunted."
