Eternity in Their Hearts by Don Richardson ★★★★★

Yet another favorite book of all time. This fundamentally transformed my perceptions of understanding people and people groups as God made them. Reaching out to and ministering to people is a dynamic process and not a universal process. There must be time spent listening to and learning about those whom you are trying to reach. Contextualization is key to successful missions and outreach. Indigenous peoples are created by the same creator. Everyone I know who has read this has been as impacted by it as I have. I think it is essential reading for every missionary and evangelist, and perhaps even every Christian. To gain a knowledgeable and informed grasp of God’s missionary work in the world, there are few better places to than here.
