A Tool in His Hand
The journey from Nebraska to inland Aabia was
half a world long, and the journey from frail boyhood to a career
demanding physical, mental, and spiritual vigot was even more arduous.
The saga of the mission doctor whose life and
work were so closely identified with the land of his labors that he was
widely knoen as "Harrison of Arabia" is told in this book by the person
who knew him best, his wife, Ann.
Paul Harrison spent more than forty years
along the eastern edge of the Arabian peninsula. During that
time, the mission grew slowly, and schools and hospitals were built
along the coast. For a long time, however, inland Arabia was
forbidden territory to the missionaries, until at last a letter arrived
from King Ibn Saud, inviting "the esteemed Dr. Harrison" to bring his
gift of medicine to central Arabia.
