Epistles of Thomas

Quote of the day – Ralph D. Winter

Today’s quote refers to William Carey’s book published in 1792: An Enquiry into the Obligations of Christians to Use Means for the Conversion of the Heathens In Which the Religious State of the Different Nations of the World, the Success of Former Undertakings, and the Practicability of Further Undertakings, Are Considered. It is available for download on Archive.org.

Ralph Winter states: “By helping to tap the immense spiritual energies of the Reformation, Carey’s book has probably contributed more to global mission than any other book in history other than the Bible itself!”*

If this is the case, why has no one required that I read it? It is only 87 pages long but unfortunately hasn’t been updated into modern English which means it will be a little tough to read.

*From “The Two Structures of God’s Redemptive Mission.” In Perspectives Reader 4th ed., p251.
