Each of us Christians wish there were some way to accelerate the progress in bringing GOD'S word to the people of our world who are in desperate need of it. We hear reports which seem to indicate we are losing ground. So what do you do? You write a book And ask GOD to bless the effort while trying to reach out to the people of the world who don't as yet know about GOD'S great plan for all mankind and should be one of our top priorities.
