Men of God

I had the opportunity to hear Don Finto last night for the first time in a while. As always, he was interesting and challenging. Mike is celebrating Glen Owen on his blog today, and I have to stop and think how much these two men were alike. Both (are, were--Glen is dead) way ahead of their peers in grace and world missions. Both feared nothing. Both were sometimes denigrated by their brethern as radicals and "too passionate." Both knew the Bible like no one I ever heard. Both brought light where ever they were and a whole lot of questions too!

Finto spoke last night about world revival--it seems to me that as American Christians, we don't get enough news about what is being done all over the world by God. We hear about what is not being done here and how quickly the church is declining. In fact, we don't even know much about the spread of Christianity outside our four walls. I know Christianity Today has a regular feature on world Christianity. Are there others?
