"A wealthy Irish girl rescuing children in India? An English maid preaching the gospel in China? An American pilot serving missionaries in Ecuador? Christian Heroes" Then & Now chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory. These easy-to-read biographies are perfect for ages 10 to 100! Ida Scudder (1870-1960) was sure she would never follow in the footsteps of her medical missionary father. But a change of heart led Ida to spend nearly sixty years in India living out the truth and compassion found in Christ. Dr. Ida Scudder pioneered a first-rate medical school and hospital and brought life-saving health care to rural people, leaving an inspiring legacy of healing and hope.

Ida stamped her foot. Her friends were wrong. "I will not be a missionary to India like my parents!" she retorted. "Don't any of you say I will be, because I won't -- never, ever, ever." Ida had never forgotten the faces of starving Indian children. She hated India -- it was full of horrible situations she could do nothing about. Ida Scudder was sure she would never follow in the footsteps of her medical missionary father. But when she witnessed Indian women dying because their religious beliefs didn't allow male doctors to treat them, Ida heard herself pray, "God, if You want me to, I will spend the rest of my life in India trying to help these women." Serving for nearly sixty years, Dr. Ida Scudder lived out the truth and compassion found in Christ. She pioneered a first-rate medical school and hospital, brought life-saving health care to rural people, and left an inspiring legacy that still touches millions of people each year with healing and hope.

Not a favourite
3 stars By Sharon, Oct 08 2014
Although well written, this biography is not my favourite. As a medical missionary she achieved certain goals however the spiritual richness that often comes through the Benge books seems to be lacking. Not as inspiring as I had hoped, but perhaps a good example of medical missionary service and the need for Christ's healing and power.
