THE MISSIONARY TRAINING SERIES

Recommended by Dr. Ralph D. Winter, founder of the US Center for World Mission: " I am delighted to become aware of the very significant thrust of the new Missionary Training Service, and its programme.  Here is a set of materials designed specifically for missionary training. Many people study in colleges that are not primarily designed for this purpose and do not get as concentrated and as strategic an exposure as is offered in this programme."

Helps for beginning house churches. While laying a groundwork for understanding Islam and its way of life, this guide focuses on practical measures for making disciples and beginning churches.

9. Understanding Hindus and Buddhists

Understanding Hindus and Buddhists can be a hard task for those with a Christian background. This booklet helpfully explains key features of Hinduism and Buddhism and synthesises advice from successful evangelists. As Buddhism arose in a Hindu context, it is helpful to have guidance on both these religions in one booklet. We pray that this practical guide will be helpful for those hoping to make an impact for the Lord Jesus among adherents of these religions.
