LEE, Allan W. Disciple Down Under : A South Pacific Journey. New York : Exposition Press, (1971). First Edition. Pp (14),[17]-81,(1). 8vo, tan cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine. "Whenever the Reverend Dr. Allan W. Lee travels - his ministerial work often takes him to distant places - the interests of literature and humanity benefit alike. An insightful observer of his fellowman and his environment Dr. Lee returns from his journneys to share his enriching experiences with readers everywhere. Two summers in Mexico with the Mexican Bible Society, for instance, resulted in the book The Burro and the Bibles. Extensive sojourns to Europe, the Middle East, Asiaand Hawaii provided inspiration for Under the Shadow of the Nine Dragons a nd Reflections Along the Reef. In 1970 Dr. Lee attended the 8th Assembly ofthe World Convention of Churches of Christ in Adelaide, Australia. True to form, the peripatetic pastor set down his impressions in Disciple Down Und er. These eighteen sketches about people and faraway places contain observations, interviews, visits in homes, descriptions of cities and happenings of the moment while moving from continent to continent. In the vignettes theauthor not only records the perceptive reactions of a veteran traveler, he also sees in the simple, everyday activities of mankind and the world, som ething of the Eternal. The result is a lively, highly rewarding spiritual travelogue." (from the dj).
