A rare missionary tract and early example of printing in the Nuer writing system of Sudan and western Ethiopia, which had been established in its final form in 1928. The work was originally composed in English by John Lester McIntyre, a missionary based for most of his career in West Africa, as an aid for fellow Christian missionaries working among African animists "in danger of going over to Islam." Translated with the help of three Nuer people named in the anonymous translator's note, this edition was published by the American Mission in what is now the town of Nasir in South Sudan. OCLC records no copies of this or any other non-lexicographical work printed in the Nuer writing system before 1935.
