You might ask why writing a book about mission history is important? This book tells a story: it is the story of contagious vision of one particular aspect of God's mission in the world. In Europe it began with a few individuals learning about how God was using linguistics and Bible translation to make himself known. It began with helping language groups all around the world gain access to God's Word. And it began with seeing how that word captured their hearts and imaginations.
