by Lamin Sanneh Piety and Power :Christians in West Africa (Faith Meets Faith Series The socio-religious-political issues of the Third World:
In particular, Eastern Europe and the Balkans travels have produced a number of books that look at the issues facing the "Third World" today, and will certainly stimulate thinking about how to reach these regions with the Gospel. Perhaps best known for his 1993 Robert D. Kaplan's , he recently recounts a journey from the Balkans with a side trip to the mid-east to the Caucasus and Tartary ten years later in Balkan Ghosts: a Journey Through History .
He has also written about West Central Africa and in Eastward to Tartary , expanded from his The Coming Anarchy : Shattering the Dreams of the Post Cold War article in the and
Atlantic Monthly .
While you may not agree with all he has to say concerning these struggling nations in the midst of a turmoil that constantly makes headlines, it is clear that the doors that have been opened in these lands may not be open long, and the missionary task in reaching these varied cultures and peoples will neither be simple nor easy. These books will move you to prayer, at the very least, for those with the courage to go and proclaim Christ's kingdom.
