Some reviews of the original 'Briefings' from which these selections are taken.
Glenn Myers' style of writing illuminates and captivates those who want to discover the truth about specific areas of the world. This is compulsory reading for busy Christians wanting to understand what God is doing in different parts of our planet and different communities of people.
Stanley Davies, Former Executive Director, Evangelical Missionary Alliance (now Global Connections)
Glenn uses a vivid palette of word pictures to give one of the best and most readable presentations of the spiritual need of the world I have read for a long time.
Patrick Johnstone, author.
This is just what our churches need - well-researched, well-presented and well-chosen topics that present the strategic challenges to Christian mission that we cannot ignore ... Every Christian should be using this resource to inform their prayers, sharpen up their thinking, and provoke practical action.
Jonathan Lamb, Langham Partnership
A wonderfully readable and sympathetic introduction to a part of the world that is always likely to be in the news and should be of special concern to Christians.
Colin Chapman, Islam scholar and author
Understanding and coming to grips with the complicated Arab/Muslim situation may well help us to understand what is happening to OUR part of the world: economically, socially and above all spiritually … This priceless little book can help us. Read it.
Brother Andrew, Open Doors.
…lively, readable and vivid. It is an ideal first introduction to the subject for Western Christians, giving an overview of the region from the beginning of the Christian era until the present. The focus is on Islam, Christianity and the wide diversity of peoples in the region. Myers takes an upbeat line, looking at exciting contemporary development in Christian mission arising from the roots of the ancient churches of the region.
Patrick Sookhdeo, Servants Fellowship International.
An excellent introduction to the spiritual and physical needs of the peoples living in one of the most neglected areas of the world … stimulates and informs prayer for these peoples, and, I trust, action too, while there is still open access to them.
John Bendor-Samuel, Wycliffe Bible Translators.
Glenn Myers takes us to worlds most of us will never be able to visit in person and opens them up in vivid, up-to- date, easily understood snapshots. The analysis is simple but not simplistic, broad but not shallow. These highly readable briefings will help Christians not only to gain a balanced understanding and greater sensitivity of other people's worlds, but also to shed some of their own prejudices and stereotypes in the process. Such learning is the first step in intelligent prayer and responsible mission.
Dr Chris Wright, Langham Partnership
Thoroughly researched and well written … [it] gets to the heart of the key issues facing the church in the region.
Sam Yeghnazar, Elam Ministries
It is a powerful tool to encourage intelligent prayer.
Ray Porter, OMF International
...inspires hope and expectancy. After reading it I wanted to go back and work there again!’
Tim Morris, former International Director, World Horizons.
The church with its message of hope and the compassion of Jesus has much to say in this situation and Glenn Myers tells us simply, directly –-almost starkly – just what that job is like.
