This is a story of faith — of cliff-hanging prayer meetings, of spiritual battles with a Hindu cult, of lessons learned while in the fire of God's testing.

   But it is mainly the story of what God is doing in our world and faith for what He is about to do tomorrow.

   Why else would a group of highly respected former missionaries, brilliant computer scientists and unusually dedicated young people band together to buy a college campus? Why, indeed, unless that space would allow dozens of evangelical mission agencies to work efficiently together as they strategize on finishing the task of evangelizing the world!

   Don't read this story unless you're willing to have your horizons enlarged, your faith tested, your future disturbed. The time to finish the job may be shorter than you think!

Roberta H. Winter was the editor of the Global Prayer Digest and author of Once More Around Jericho. Co-founder with her husband, Ralph D. Winter, of the U.S. Center for World Mission in Pasadena, California, Mrs. Winter was involved in teaching global mission strategy in various forums. She was the mother of four daughters, all of whom with their husbands are involved in the task of reaching the "Hidden" (unreached) peoples of our world today. She died of cancer in October 2001, just 2 months before the Winter's 50th Wedding anniversary.

   Here is a revised edition with three new chapters written by Roberta before she died, plus three up to date chapters by her husband. The New Thing is Now!
