‘God Spoke Tibetan’ is about the faith of those who learned Tibetan and strove for over ninety years to bring a Bible to the Tibetans in there own language. This book is written in a novel-form, is very exciting with all the narrow escapes and Gods providence in keeping them safe even through the toughest circumstances. It is a book of perseverance, and it is a true story.
I really enjoyed this book, just to see the Tibetan life, the different gods they had, and how the Christians finally came through and gave the Tibetans a Bible, after so much blood, sweat and tears, they almost gave up hundreds of times, their patience is admirable.
Something that creeped me out a little was the descriptive pages of a sacrifice to their gods, and through that a Tibetan man would be possessed with an evil spirit, who then devoured the sacrifice. It was very confronting and real, got me thinking, it was defiantly very interesting to learn about the old Tibetan religion and how many flung it off for Christianity.

Chandhu Ray again bowed his head in thanks. He had seen another miracle..
