Revolution In World Missions by K. P. Yohannan






ABOUT THE BOOK


"Lord, I'll give myself to speak for You."

Young Yohannan had no idea what those words of surrender would mean for his life and for millions of others in his generation. Once an insecure 16-year-old, he became a missionary statesman who has impacted the world of missions and whose unbending message has touched hungry hearts on every continent.

Step into his story and experience the world through his eyes. You'll walk right into the book of Acts. And through his telling, you'll hear the very heart of God beating for His creation. K.P. Yohannan's passion is contagious and spurs you on to be all for Jesus.

He chose to take the road less traveled many years ago, and today Gospel for Asia, 
www.gfa.org  the mission he founded, is one of the most respected organizations in our time with thousands of national workers and vibrant congregations throughout the heart of the 10/40 Window.

                         MY REVIEW

I was moved by K.P. Yohannan's story of how he came to start the Gospel for Asia mission. By relating his story and letting the reader know all the details, he created a book that will forever leave an imprint on the lives of those who read it.

His practical and God-inspired solutions to helping those in Asia by raising up disciples for Christ among the communities of those who already live there, so they can be an example and win others to Christ, made perfect sense.

The one point that hit home for me was even though a lot of us aren't called by Christ personally to be a missionary, we all have a responsibility to the Great Commission. We are all called to help win others to Christ.

My favorite quote from the book is on page 104- " If we intend to answer man's greatest problem-his separation from the eternal God-with rice handouts, then we are throwing a drowning man a board instead of helping him out of the water."

I received a complimentary copy and willingly choose to review it. All opinions are my own.
              

                         ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan has been crisscrossing the globe for the past 40 years, challenging the Body of Christ to discipleship. His call to a radical lifestyle—with an all-out commitment to Jesus—has left its impact on nearly every continent. To the Church caught up by the tidal waves of compromise and self-preservation, Yohannan’s life message is a fresh word to this generation and yet as timeless as the scriptural mandate itself.

Yohannan is the founder and director of Gospel for Asia (GFA), a Christian mission organization deeply committed to seeing communities transformed through the love of Christ demonstrated in word and deed. He is also the metropolitan bishop of Believers Church , an indigenous church in South Asia.

Born in South India in 1950, Yohannan is the youngest of six sons. His mother dedicated each of her children to the Lord and longed to see one of them commit their lives to ministry. She secretly fasted each Friday for three-and-a-half years, praying, “Oh God, let just one of my boys preach!” Even as she prayed, her children were growing up, seeming destined for secular work. Finally, only the youngest, little “Yohannachan,” was left. Seeing how shy and insecure he was, his mother thought there was little chance that he would preach.
