Publisher's Summary

A fellow missionary had said, "When you get to China, all the scum of your nature will rise to the top." It surely had, mused Belle. The food, the fleas, the filth, the exhausting mountain paths, and so many other transitions to missionary life had tested her. But Belle had stayed at her post, and she was so glad that she had.

As a 14-year-old intent on living a "modern" life, the last thing Isobel Kuhn (1901-1957) wanted to grow up to be was a missionary. But as it turned out, this young agnostic's life was redirected - from crisis and doubt to hope and strength.

Convinced that God wanted her to preach the gospel as a China inland missionary, Isobel bravely served among the Lisu people in remote mountainous regions of China and Thailand. After 20 years of ministry Isobel returned to the United States, writing stirring stories of faith and inspiring generations of listeners.

This best-selling, missionary biography series - 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.

Excellent overview of Isobel Kuhn's life and work in China

Excellent overview of the life of Isobel Kuhn, missionary to China. Isobel's life was full of adventure and sacrifice as she served among the Lisu tribes in China and northern Thailand, and the authors do a great job of highlighting her extraordinary life of steady faithfulness to God's work overseas.

Beautifully written & narrated!

I consider it a huge compliment to regard this book, “Isobel Kuhn: On The Roof Of The World,“ as a worthy
companion of Isobel Kuhn’s books.
As a devoted bookworm for many decades, it is notable to single out Isobel’s book, “In The Arena,“ which I read MANY years ago, as being so memorable that it remains one of my top favorite books throughout all these years. So, (in comparison), I didn’t have high expectations of this Audible book... but what a pleasant surprise!
