For more than 40 years, Operation World has been the primary global resource encouraging readers to pray for world missions and evangelism. Not only does it encourage awareness of and sensitivity to global missions, it also serves to foster a desire for more involvement in hands-on missions.
"Operation World is an 'out of the stands and onto the playing field' kind of book," says Joshua Project Director Daniel Scribner. "Other than Scripture, Operation World has the potential to have the greatest impact on the life of a believer of any book ever published. It uniquely reveals the heart-throb of God for the world and His unfolding drama of redeeming followers of Jesus from every tribe, tongue, nation and people. Be prepared for a radical transformation in how you view the world and your Christian life!"
