The Story Lives On: God's Power Throughout Generations
God uses people to embody His power to change the world in miraculous ways. Wanda Lee, national WMU executive director and hands-on missionary, leading the world's largest organization of laypeople engaged in missions, gives an intimate, detailed narrative about the radical individuals and groups having an impact for Christ in places of hopelessness and exploitation. As executive director and former field missionary and nurse, Lee hammers out a biblical response to human suffering. Reporting on the present passion of Christian leaders and laypersons, and recording past victories, this book will ignite continuing commitment to missions to the least. Using Acts 4:12-20 as the foundation, Lee bears authentic witness to what she and others have seen and heard of God's redemptive power:
- Radical overcoming through Jesus Christ - across audience and culture
- Liberating victory in the battle against human exploitation
- Redemptive witnesses fanning the flame of passion for the Great Commission throughout generations
