Angel of the Amazon: A Thrilling Story of Compassion and Faith by Bill Woods with Victor Maxwell and published by Classics.
Our world is in desperate need of authentic and selfless role models. We need genuine and living illustrations in flesh and blood, men and women of biblical faith and Christ-like service, examples we can follow. Such present-day heroes and heroines inspire us to do better service for Christ, dig deeper in our study of God's Word, stand taller in our witness for the Saviour, and climb higher in the realms of faith.
This biography of Dr. Bill Woods gives us such a role model. Born, reared, and educated in Belfast, Bill went to Brazil's Amazon as a missionary, became overwhelmed with the suffering of thousands and dedicated his life to relieve that suffering. En route to reaching his goals, Bill also suffered and paid a great price of loneliness, which his dedication demanded. His work has been acclaimed by medical and civil authorities in the Americas and the United Kingdom.
