This week's giveaway is a classic text on missions history, From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya.
In this book author Ruth Tucker guides readers through the 2,000-year story of Christian missions by focusing on the real life examples of missionaries throughout history.
Her biographical approach to history means we see these men and women as fallible and human, in their failures as well as their successes.
This second edition emphasizes missions in the modern era, including chapters focused on the Muslim world, Third World missions, and a comparison of missions in Korea and Japan. It also contains new graphics, photographs, and both a general and an “illustration” index where readers can easily locate particular missionaries, stories, or incidents.
From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya is a compelling and informative book, and an important resource for missionaries, mission agencies, students, and all who are concerned about the spreading of the gospel throughout the world.
