Item description for Loren Cunningham: Into All the World (Christian Heroes: Then & Now) (Christian Heroes, Then & Now) by Janet Benge & Geoff Benge...

Without warning, a huge map of the world appeared in Loren's mind's eye. Loren blinked, but the map was still there. Soon it was covered with ocean waves beating on every shore. Then the waves turned into the faces of young people flowing over every nation. Was Loren being given a glimpse of the future? If so, what part was he going to play? Ever since he was a young boy dreaming of writing "God Is Love" on the moon so that all the world's people could see it, Loren Cunningham has committed his life to reaching the whole world with the Good News of Jesus Christ, ministering in every nation on earth. Through his unswerving belief that nothing is impossible for God, Loren's vision of waves of young people became the reality of Youth With A Mission, unleashing young Christians in missionary service when that was unheard of. Today, through the mission he began, multiplied thousands of believers -- young and old -- are working together to bring the gospel to the whole earth. (1935-) This best-selling, missionary biography series - Christian Heroes: Then & Now - chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory.

Publishers Description
"A wealthy Irish girl rescuing children in India? An English maid preaching the gospel in China? An American pilot serving missionaries in Ecuador? Christian Heroes" Then & Now chronicles the exciting, challenging, and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory. These easy-to-read biographies are perfect for ages 10 to 100 Loren Cunningham (1935- ) was only twenty when he first had the vision of the waves--waves of young people announcing the Good News of Jesus to the whole earth. But in 1955, a great gulf existed between young people and the mission field. Loren's firm belief that nothing is impossible for God took him into every nation on earth as his vision became the reality of Youth With A Mission.

Reviews - What do customers think about Loren Cunningham: Into All the World (Christian Heroes: Then & Now) (Christian Heroes, Then & Now)?

The story of a man who followed after God, no matter what.  Dec 13, 2005
This book tells the story of a man who, at age 13, heard the voice of the Lord, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel." He was also given a vision of waves of young people carrying the Gospel into all nations. He actually did preach in every nation, before he was 60. He formed a missions organization called "Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and saw thousands of young people carry the Gospel to almost every nation, and the story of God's supernatural enabling in all this is very exciting. What an encouragement!
Janet & Geoff Benge, Christian Heroes Then & Now: Loren Cunn  Apr 25, 2005
This is one of twenty-five biographies written for juveniles by the Benges for the Christian Heroes: Then & Now Series, and published by YWAM. Interestingly, of all the subjects of these volumes, Loren Cunningham is the only one still living. One wonders to what extent his inclusion in this group is due to the fact that he founded YWAM in the early 1960s, and whether the volume might not have been more appropriately placed in YWAM's International Adventures series, all of which deal with contemporary missions work.

Loren Cunningham offers a bibliography (at p. 219) noting Cunningham's own works (co-authored with Janice Rogers)- Is That Really You, God? (1984), Making Jesus Lord (1988), and Daring to Live on the Edge (1991). Several of the people and events covered in other YWAM books are also mentioned in passing. The refitting of the Anastasis (see pp 182-84), for example, is treated in Jeannette Lukasse's A Cry in the Streets (2002), while Floyd McClung's work in Amsterdam (see p. 190) is covered in greater depth in McClung's Living on the Devil's Doorstep (2001).

The Benges' book serves as a useful biography of Cunningham's life to date. The subject has had an undeniable impact on missions in the latter part of the 20th century and this work is accessible to both juveniles and adults. Like most works in the hagiographic tradition, its focus is on the positive, and the fact that it is published by YWAM could raise questions as to its impartiality. While the definitive biography of Loren Cunningham's life has yet to be written, the fact that the Benges were not content to rely exclusively on secondary materials, but went to the trouble to interview their subject (see p. 219), means that their work will play a role in any subsequent discussion of YWAM's founder.
