Children of the Monkey God - Chinese Culture / History
F. S. Choo grew up in a traditional Chinese Hakka family in Sarawak,
Malaysia at a time when it was administered by British colonial rule.
Written in the gentle style of his native culture, he charts and reveals
a fascinating world beginning with his great grandfatherís migra-tion
from China to West Kalimantan, Borneo in the early 1850ís; his life as a
gold miner and his connection to the mysterious Kongsi, a unique
self-governing democratic organ-ization that flourished until the mid
1800ís when it came into conflict with Dutch colonial rule and the White
Rajahs of Sarawak, Borneo.
Covering a period of 115 years, 1850-1965, Children of the Monkey God
deals with the experiences of four generations of a Chinese family in
Sarawak. Candid and at times humorous, satirical and controversial, it
vividly captures life at the crossroads of change in the 1950ís and Ď60ís
when the sun was setting on the colonial era. It conveys to the reader the
multi-layered cultural influences of British colonialism, the burgeoning
American pop-scene, and that of the different Chinese dialect groups. It
offers a fascinating insight into some of the social, cultural and religious
beliefs and practices of a world that is fast disappearing and seldom seen
treasures of great wealth can be discovered centuries after their
creation, to become pearls of great price to the discoverer. This
can happen, either by chance or by Divine Providence.
Certainly God has a time and place for all things.
Such is the case with "Ancient Manuscripts of the
Life and Times of Jesus Christ." Although this book was first
compiled and printed in the mid-1800s, it has lain dormant for more than a
century, being handed down through several generations of its original
Perhaps Divine intervention has chosen this time for
its resurrection; for this book is spiritually charged with new insights
into the days and times of Jesus Christ. It is a book concerned with
a journey to faith, a ten year expedition which resulted in the discovery
of ancient manuscripts, found in the archives of European libraries in the
1800s by a man who was driven by theological inspiration.
Join him in discovering the life and times of Jesus,
the Christ, Our Savior.
