About-

Love Never Fails is Dr. Robert P. Vande Kappelle’s biographical tribute to Jacob and Bertha Vande Kappelle, career missionaries to Latin America. The book introduces the reader to two contrasting nations, placid Costa Rica and turbulent Colombia. During Jake and Bert’s seven terms as missionaries, democracy and Marxism contended for the soul of Latin America. Against this backdrop, Catholic and Protestant traditions clashed, and then cooperated, in their struggle against poverty and disbelief. The book narrates the spiritual conflict while highlighting the opportunities created when individuals of faith contend against forces of superstition and despair. Love Never Fails will cause all readers to evaluate the meaning of faith and look for renewal of heart and mind.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“I heartily commend this book as an outstanding story of two people who loved and served the Lord without public recognition, without fame or fortune, but with all their heart, soul, and body.”

––David M. Howard, former president of the Latin America Mission and former director of InterVarsity’s Missions Department

“An unusually well-written biography with rare insights into the character of Christian service. . . . This book engenders great inspiration to the reader.”

––Clayton L. Berg, former president of the Latin America Mission

“This very personal and moving biography ought to be required reading for all who have felt and are responding to God’s command to go forth to preach, teach, and heal as Christ’s servants.”

––Nathaniel C. Roe, missionary of Africa and India
