Product Description

In The Greatest Missionary Generation: Inspiring Stories from around the World, Larry Sharp establishes the characteristics, challenges, successes, and uniqueness of an incredible generation of missionaries. It is of no small significance that the missionaries of the second half of the twentieth century prepared the way for God’s people of the twenty-first century. Post-World War II purveyors of the gospel had incredible opportunities and open doors, and they used them for the glory of God.

Through the retelling of personal stories of the missionaries in New Guinea, Brazil, Mexico, and more, lesser known details of missionary activity in the 1950s and 1960s are revealed, including the courage, personal calling, sacrifice, and excellence of these brave Christians. Their incredible journeys prove that their legacy is worth celebrating and remembering. It is of utmost importance for future generations to understand and appreciate the previous generation’s struggles and triumphs. The Greatest Missionary Generation will mobilize hearts to love and serve the Lord.

Key points and features:
• An in-depth look into the lives and work of missionaries who served in the decades after World War II
