The Ralph D. Winter Story-How One Man Dared to Shake Up World Missions

By Grace




There was never a time when my life and that of my late husband intersected with Ralph Winter's life that we were not confronted and challenged by his amazing thinking. Bill and Ralph were roommates at Princeton Theological Seminary and remained friends and mutual encouragers through the years of their separate ministries. This volume portrays the development of Ralph's thinking that led to his initiating the Roberta Winter Institute. In his captivating style, Harold Fickett draws his readers into Ralph's godly, productive life.

"The Ralph D. Winter Story" is this year's most important missions book, science book, history book, and how-to-change-the-world book! It's also a loving tribute to one of the greatest innovators and teachers of our time. Ralph D. Winter initiated more God-glorifying ideas every decade than all the previous decades of his life combined. The most important legacy Winter wished to leave was a generation of world changers who would join Jesus Christ in destroying the works of the devil. That is the task remaining for those of us who knew Ralph Winter and those fortunate readers who will meet him in Fickett's superb book.
