From Voices We Need to Hear

"Some of the sharpest thinkers in the world church are doing grassroots ministry in eastern nations. As their countries cannot afford specialist writers, their insights are often lost to the church worldwide. This is a shame because the church would be greatly enriched by their insights. I am so glad for this book, which is introducing to a wider audience the thinking and experiences of some of our outstanding leaders."

"The challenge of Asia is immense, with an estimated 60% of the entire world living there, including two countries whose populations together approaches 2.5 billion souls. The context of Asia is complicated, diverse, and spiritually overwhelming, with most of the world’s Hindus, Buddhists, and Moslems living there—plus more than a billion whose world view is classified as secular. These realities make Eastern Voices an answer to an urgent need—to understand ministry in Asia through the eyes and wisdom of Asian leaders. Eastern Voices takes us into the classroom of experienced, godly Christian leaders as they address issues that we in the Western world might not understand. This first of many anticipated volumes is a library of training for people serving in Asia. The book asks the question, “Can you hear the voices?” I strongly encourage any Christian leader interested in or burdened for Asia to sit, read Eastern Voices, and listen carefully."
