Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Foreword by Dr. Arthur F. Glasser, Dean Emeritus, Fuller Theological Seminary School of World Mission: "The many rich details woven into this story come from firsthand observations and faithful archival research, portraying a mission work which could be held up as a representative model of missionary service in the second half of the 20th century. There are many educational possibilities latent in this book. Missions professors or missions directors in a local church could use it as foundational to a course examining what missionary work is about for this record contains the basic components of the typical missionary situation. History and politics, cultural diversity, cooperation and fragmentation between church agencies all constitute the context in which the gospel challenges the spiritual realities of restless peoples around the world."
