Taking the World for Jesus
The Remarkable Story of the Greatest Commission
Paperback. 408 Pages
'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' - Jesus Christ
This is the retelling of the most exciting story in all of human history. Something truly remarkable occurred when Jesus Christ rose from the dead and gave His disciples a great commission. The world would never be the same again.
Kevin Swanson takes the reader through the 2,000 year worldwide saga of this epochal mission to the world. From Judea to Rome, Ireland, Denmark, China, Japan, Uganda, New Zealand, and to the uttermost parts of the earth, the light of Christ shines into the darkness, transforming every nation throughout the centuries.
This book describes the condition of the nations before Jesus came, and follows the missionary work that confronted formidable strongholds and brought about the transformation of nations. It is highly recommended for Christian students, Christian families (as a read-aloud), and Christian churches residing in every nation, who wish to understand their own heritage of faith.
