The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it -- from garden seeds to Scripture -- is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

  • My favorite

    This is my all time favorite book. the story is riveting and shows the very interesting life of a family of missionaries. A type of historic novel, but perhaps better for those of us not in favor of proselytizing. Very well written.

  • Must Read

    This book is a literary triumph. This book is approachable to the average reader, but complex enough for even the most versed readers. The metaphors in this book and the overall implications of the characters' actions make this book truly amazing. The Poisonwood Bible is a must-read (and a must pass on to your friends as well).

  • Loved This Book!

    I had to read this book in high school during my senior honors English class four years ago, and it has been on my "favorites" list ever since! I have reccommended the book to others! Parts of it are a little weird and long, but overall I found the book moving and interesting! I'm surprised people didn't like it...my entire class loved it! I'm not usually one for missionary novels, but you almost lose sight of it when you're reading it. This book has every emotion in it, and I plan to read it again! Give it a chance!

  • Can not recommend because...

    I found this book disturbing. I was expecting sacrifice and turmoil and even tragedy in a missionary's family. I was not expecting this!!! And, although I usually love the unexpected - I mean this in a negative way.
