Max Moment: Milestone and Reviews
A couple weeks ago I typed out the final words in the first draft of the second (as yet unnamed) Missionary Max book. I have to say, I'm more excited about this one than I was the first...there is nonstop adventure, action, and some pretty surprising twists. They were even surprising to me.
If all goes according to plan, I will finish the editing process in the next couple of weeks, and send it off to the publisher.
Need a little convincing? Here is a list of some of the more recent reviews of this book:
Bible Geek Gone Wild called The Astonishing Adventures of Missionary Max "a fun-filled adventure story with enough peril and intrigue to keep readers on the edge of their seats."
Coralie at Life More Abundant says it is a "surprisingly enjoyable read".
If you are interested in reviewing The Astonishing Adventures of Missionary Max on your own blog or website, please let me know in the comments section, and I will send you your very own copy, free of charge.

Max Moment: Another Great Review
It's been a while since we have featured a review of The Astonishing Adventures of Missionary Max here. Stepping up to end the drought is Shaun at Bible Geek Gone Wild, who posted a very generous review of the book earlier this week.
The Astonishing Adventures of Missionary Max is a fun-filled adventure story with enough peril and intrigue to keep readers on the edge of their seats. Once I got into the story, I simply couldn’t put it down and finished it in one sitting.

Max Moment: The Hawker Hart
In Max's first adventures on Cabrito, a World War Two airplane called the "Hawker Hart" plays a key role. Here is what the book has to say about the plane:
"The Hawker Hart was an airplane whose time never came. A sturdy biplane built by Great Britain between the Wars, it came in both fighter and bomber versions. By the opening of hostilities, however, it was hopelessly obsolete--no match for the Japanese Zeros or German Messerschmitts. Still, the hardy planes were put to use in behind-the-lines operations, and in the defense of places that had little chance of being attacked.
"Made out of metal--not the flimsy canvas of World War I-era planes--the two-seater Hawker Hart was different in other ways as well. Its nose came to a sharp point, and in contrast to the usual arrangement, the pilot sat in front while the passenger sat in back. The passenger seat was also equipped with an air-cooled machine-gun, giving the plane a sting as well as a bite."
For more detailed information on this fascinating plane, check out this site, which includes an in-depth history as well as updates on several restoration projects.
And of course, if you are interested in knowing how this figures in to the story of a missionary on a tropical island, read The Astonishing Adventures of Missionary Max.
