Summary : Klappentext: An American of Swedish descent, Bruce Olsson has told his fantastic life as a missionary among the Motilone (Bari) Indians of Colombia, South America, in his best-selling book Bruchko. Many wondered, even doubted, if the remarkable events which the book portrays were actually true. French and Swedish anthropologists called him an American hacienda owner making the Motilones his personal colony. They accused him of destroying the pristine innocence of an aboriginal tribe. Andres Küng is the top-notch television and newspaper reporter who set out to investigate the charges. This book is the intriguing account of Küng's on-the-spot investigation in Colombia: Why were the derogatory charges made? What had some anthropologists hoped to gain? What was Bruce Olsson really doing? In a day when many humanistic scientists are urging Third World countries to expel literacy experts and other missionaries working among tribal peoples, this is an important book - one you will want to read and share. "Bruce Olson is one of the most challenging pieces on a missionary loner in our time. The character of Bruce Olson is finally vindicated but much more than that comes out. Here is an accurate, colorful profile of an Indian tribe in Colombia caught against the background of pressures that almost destroyed them. A missionary classic, must reading for anyone concerned with the true method of carrying the compassion of God to a needy people." -- James L. Johnson, President of Evangelical Literature Overseas. The author Andres Küng is a graduate of the Stockholm School of Economics, has traveled to about one hundred countries and speaks a dozen languages. Formerly the editor-in-chief of the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation's daily cultural and debating program, he then became a freelance writer and journalist. Active in political and journalistic circles, he has been honored by the underground resistance movements of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as well for outstanding journalistic and literary achievement by the Swedish Writer's Association.

Summary : Until it was pulled down, the Walled City was Hong Kong's most foreboding territory. It was a lawless place, dominated by the Triads, and which the police hesitated to enter. Strangers were unwelcome. Drug smuggling and heroin addiction flourished, as did prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. When Jackie Pullinger set sail from England in 1966 she had no idea that God was calling her to the Walled City. Yet, as she spoke of Jesus Christ, brutal Triad gangsters were converted, prostitutes quit, and Jackie discovered a new treatment for drug addiction: baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Summary : Son of Hamas is now available in softcover with an all-new chapter about events since the book’s release such as the revelation of Mosab’s Israeli intelligence handler’s true identity, and Homeland Security’s effort to deport the author. Since he was a small boy, Mosab Hassan Yousef has had an inside view of the deadly terrorist group Hamas. The oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founding member of Hamas and its most popular leader, young Mosab assisted his father for years in his political activities while being groomed to assume his legacy, politics, status . . . and power. But everything changed when Mosab turned away from terror and violence, and embraced instead the teachings of another famous Middle East leader. In Son of Hamas, Mosab reveals new information about the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization and unveils the truth about his own role, his agonizing separation from family and homeland, the dangerous decision to make his newfound faith public, and his belief that the Christian mandate to “love your enemies” is the only way to peace in the Middle East.

Summary : From Cannibals to Christ-Followers--A True Story In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. Peace Child tells their unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals, who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology. The "peace child" became the secret to unlocking a value system that had existed through generations. This analogy became a stepping-stone by which the gospel came into the Sawi culture and started both a spiritual and a social revolution from within. With an epilogue updating how the gospel has impacted the Sawi people, this missionary classic will inspire a new generation of readers who need to hear this remarkable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating Christ in a meaningful way to those around us.

Summary : Discipleship is eschatological in nature, because the church that makes and receives disciples is eschatological in nature. Often eschatology is thought to refer only to “last things” doctrines. However, eschatology in its broader sense encompasses the Christian view of time and the future of the world, informing both one’s evangelism and ecclesiology. Failing to relate the eschatological dimension to discipleship leaves one with an incomplete worldview, imbalanced discipleship, and eventually, a tragic inability to model the Christian way of life. By answering questions like “What time is it?” and “Where is history going?” Trevin Wax helps Christians view the past, present, and future biblically, and shapes their understanding of following Jesus.

Summary : Tens of millions of Christians live in China today, many of them leading double lives or in hiding from a government that relentlessly persecutes them. Bob Fu, whom the Wall Street Journal called "The pastor of China's underground railroad," is fighting to protect his fellow believers from persecution, imprisonment, and even death. God's Double Agent is his fascinating and riveting story. Bob Fu is indeed God's double agent. By day Fu worked as a full-time lecturer in a communist school; by night he pastored a house church and led an underground Bible school. This can't-put-it-down book chronicles Fu's conversion to Christianity, his arrest and imprisonment for starting an illegal house church, his harrowing escape, and his subsequent rise to prominence in the United States as an advocate for his brethren. God's Double Agent will inspire readers even as it challenges them to boldly proclaim and live out their faith in a world that is at times indifferent, and at other times murderously hostile, to those who spread the gospel.
