The life of missionary John G. Paton has fascinated readers for generations. Replete with thrilling narratives of cannibal wars and native intrigue, Paton’s history brilliantly captures the details of life among the South Sea islands in the mid-nineteenth century, and is is a marvelous tale of Christ-like love and godly self-sacrifice and bravery amidst a savage and barbaric people. Ask of Me retells the early stages of Paton’s missionary work through the delightful medium of rhyme. 

While recounting Paton’s fascinating adventures and life, Ask of Me draws the reader’s attention to particular aspects of God’s character and the practical applications to be drawn from historical narratives. This is, indeed, the reason for history. History is the object lesson that drives home the fundamental truths of Scripture and causes us to know more and more the character of our God and the unchangeableness of His nature and faithfulness. 

Just as Joshua declared, we study history in order that “all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever” (Joshua 4:24).
