      This is an account of how the Bible came to be translated into the Tibetan language. As to that, it is an amazing story that deserves to be recounted. However, this book could use some editing to help with timing and segue issues that could cause confusion to the young reader.

      I read this because my daughter has to read it this year, and I liked it much more than I thought I would.

      This is a riveting book which chronicles the story of how the Bible was translated into the Tibetan language. It took over a span of 100 years to finish the entire translation. Several wars interrupted the process. God's hand is evident in many of delays that happened. In the end, good wins and over 4,000 Scriptures made their way into Tibet in the early 1980(?)s.

      I had to read this for school. It started off pretty well but got progressively worse. It was very choppy.
