by Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt - The Plough Publishing House
These letters from Blumhardt to a missionary in China, turn the traditional concept of Christian mission on its head. For Blumhardt, the gospel of Jesus Christ has nothing to do with religion. There is no need to bring Christianity to people.

This book is a story, not an academic treatise. The author has never been committed to a lifetime of study and involvement in Christianity and hence must be considered a dilettante in this field. This does give him the advantage of being objective.

This book is about science and Christianity, and it reconciles the two. It is a book about man's place in the universe, with fascinating implications. The book is written for everyone, Christian and non-Christian, and it will challenge both greatly.
