Into the Great Unknown - Maurice Harvey


Author Maurice Harvey returns with another collection of exciting firsthand stories from his time as a missionary and as the Bible Society photojournalist.

The memoir begins with Maurice leaving the safety of his New Zealand home as a young man in the 1960s and heading into deepest Africa-bound for the war-ravaged Congo region. Leaving the sheltered environs of New Zealand was, for a young man in 1960, truly an adventure into the unknown. But with the strong assurance that God was with him, it became an adventure of excitement and great enjoyment.

From Congo, the story continues as Maurice travels across the African continent, through post-Communist Eastern Europe, and then into Asia. His final stop is the mysterious and formidable state of North Korea.

Told with compassion and charm, these stories reflect an eye for the quirky as well the poignant.

What They're Saying:

"In the same way Maurice Harvey captures the world through his camera lens, he also offers readers vivid images through words. A sense of adventure permeates the text, as well as a strong sense of faith. Part travel commentary, part spiritual memoir, Into the Great Unknown delivers exactly what the title suggests: a foray into unexplored corners of the world and of the heart."
- Liz Curtis Higgs (New York Times best-selling author)

"Vivid descriptions of expeditions, ordeals and triumphs, relates experiences in countries only heard of via world news and the hardiest travellers - experiences of narrow escapes, swiftly answered prayers, journeys of discovery, amazing people met..."
- Marlene Dunsmore (War Cry Magazine)
