Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind Audiobook Review Blog Tour

Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind AudiobookThis week we have several bloggers participating in an audiobook review blog tour for Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind by Paul White. This special blog tour is in partnership with ChristianAudio. If you’re a book review blogger, you should consider joining the ChristianAudio Reviewers Program. Links to the reviews will appear below as they are available:

“Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind is about a doctor/missionary who is attempting to help the people in Tanzania and throughout Africa… Paul Michael, did a wonderful job reading the book. While listening to this audio book, I felt the story come alive in my mind and just could not stop listening.”
-Janele Shillito (www.parsnipsandparsimony.com)

“Dr. White is an excellent role model of faith in God alone as he encounters trial after trial, continually turning to God and pointing those around him to the Bible… I greatly enjoyed listening to this book and am excited to recommend it to you…and I am looking forward to listening again with my family.”
-Betsy (rootedbytheriver.wordpress.com)

“This book will capture your whole family’s attention and is great for car trips or just hanging around the living room with the family. Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind is a must-get!”
-Aimee Klejwa (http://www.visionarywomanhood.com)

“Beyond the superb audio theatrics, I was also pleasantly drawn in by the captivating storytelling of Paul White (whom I knew nothing about until the intro to this book). He doesn’t just excellently and creatively weave an interesting story; he also presents and unfolds some deep, important Biblical truths in ways that make God’s Word and ways tangible to the reader/listener.”
-Haelie Heard (tonotdecideistodecide.blogspot.com)

“I have to admit I have not listened to very many audiobooks before and boy, have I been missing out! I downloaded this book from Christianaudio.com as part of a review for Christian Focus 4 Kids. I put it on my MP3 player and listened to it while cleaning, working out, and checking my email. I’ve never “read” a book so fast!”
-Taryn Raulston (tarynraulston.blogspot.com)

“I have to say overall this is a great listen and a fabulous way for kids to learn about day-to-day life, as a missionary out in the field.”
-Se7en (www.se7en.org.za)

Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind is a fantastic story. Filled with humorous characters, exciting (dangerous!) situations, and a genuine medical crisis, there is plenty in the audiobook to get excited about.”
-Danika Cooley (thinkingkids.wordpress.com)

“Jungle Doctor books combine excitement, medicine and a strong Christian message. This comes out clearly in the audio book… There are some brilliant turns of phrase and an end with echoes of the parable of the prodigal son.”
-Sarah Jones (weshallobtaindeliveringgrace.blogspot.co.uk)

Noel Piper’s Review of the Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind Audiobook

Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind AudiobookMany of our readers are familiar with Paul White’s wonderful Jungle Doctor stories available from Christian Focus 4 Kids. However, you may not know that there are dramatized audiobooks for many of these stories too. Earlier this summer Noel Piper shared her thoughts on the Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind audiobook. Here’s an excerpt from her review:

“Habari? (What news?)
Nzuri. (Good.)
I heard that Swahili greeting & response numerous times in the Jungle Doctor & the Whirlwind from christianaudio.com. At first I thought, “That’s not so different than a typical quick, polite, superficial greeting here.” But there is a difference. The American greeting goes “How are you?” . . . “Fine.” And that’s it. But the Swahili greeting often doesn’t end with Nzuri.
It might go something like this: “What’s the news?” . . . “Good. . . . But in our village many people are dying.”
That’s one of the reasons I appreciate books about other cultures: I learn about my own.
I’ve visited hospitals in Africa and I’ve written about medical missionary Helen Roseveare in Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God. So I could imagine pretty easily the rugged, challenging setting of Dr. Paul White‘s stories from Tanganyika (now Tanzania) in the late 1930s when he was there.
Officially this book is for ages 10 and up. As I listened I realized, Yes it’s good for preteens and early teens, but it’s definitely not too young for me. I kept thinking of different sorts of people who’d get drawn into Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind, of the Jungle Doctor Series (also available in paperback).”
