Daktar, Diplomat in Bangladesh, autobiography by Viggo Olsen  ????

Daktar is a heart-stirring autobiography of a surgeon who found Christ while in residency, and decided to bring the gospel message to East Pakistan, now known as Bangladesh. He unfortunately was caught in the civil war of East Pakistan breaking away from West Pakistan, and the massive inhumanity which occurred in the process. Through his trust in Christ, he was able to build a hospital in the heart of mostly Muslim Chittagong region of Bangladesh, and reach many with the gospel. It is to this hospital that Betsy and I hope to spend several months next year, and so was a particularly appealing story. It received only four stars, since parts of it were slightly bizarre, especially the added unnecessary comments by Ms. Lockerbie. Otherwise a stimulating read, especially if one is considering medical missionary work.
