5.0 out of 5 stars Rise above hatred, May 1 2004
I was impressed by the author's struggle against apartheid, but I was more impressed by his struggle to rise above hatred. His vision for the future of South Africa included freeing the South African people of color from opression and freeing the white South Africans from fear. Paraphrasing Bishop Tutu: Nelson Mandela is perhaps the icon of forgiveness. His generosity of spirit was inspiring and the history was fascinating.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book with a message to ponder., March 4 2002
I enjoyed this book! When all the trappings of daily modern life are stripped away, we can focus on what is really important in the eternal perspective, living and loving. Mr. Groberg shares his experiences and love for the Tongan people and culture and relates them to me personally. I was sorry when his mission was over, I would have liked to have learned more. I felt like a child sitting at the feet of a master story teller/teacher.
