Review: The Last of the Giants by:Harry Rimmer

The Last of the Giants (How Christ Came to the Lumberjacks)
About the Book:
In its early years, Duluth was a gold mine for lumber barons. Men were employed as lumberjacks and worked like beasts, only to be tossed aside like used equipment when no longer needed. The grand forests were raped for their prime timber, the balance burned wastefully. The men were coarse and hard, but they had to be to survive. More than any other people that ever lived in our land, these old-time lumberjacks could truthfully say, “No man cared for my soul.”


That is, until God sent three men to the great Northwoods of our country ¬– Frank Higgins, John Sornberger, and Al Channer. These men blazed new trails of the Spirit and founded an empire for God. They reached a sector of humanity for which no spiritual work had ever been done before, storming the Northwoods with a consuming passion for Christ. And with that passion, they also brought a heart as big as all outdoors, a love for men that burned like a flame, and a desperate desire to see these men saved.

My Review:
 God can recruit you in the most unlikely of circumstances in the most unlikely of places. He is God after all, and when He first calls you to do something extraordinary for Him, your thoughts and plans may not exactly match up with His. But before long your heart and His will be a perfect match. God is good like that. My husband and I were called into the ministry ten years ago and it took a lot for God to get us on the right track going the right way, but we finally did and we most definitely feel better for it.

 The Last of the Giants, takes the lives of three men into the lumberjack camps as missionaries. These three individuals had the hunger to win lost souls at any cost, so they went about God's work as He commanded. The lumberjacks were a rough and tumble kind of crowd, but God doesn't concern himself with that and we shouldn't either. So each of the individuals involved set about to get this accomplished for Him. To read more great reviews on this book, visit this link. You can purchase here.
