The Ralph D. Winter Story Just Published

The Ralph D. Winter Story: How One Man Dared to Shake Up World Missions, the new, long-awaited biography of the late Ralph D. Winter—described by missionary statesman Ray Tallman as “perhaps the most influential person in missions of the last 50 years” —has just been published by the U.S. Center for World Mission.

Acclaimed author Harold Fickett wrote this engaging, substantive, honest, and illuminating volume. The Ralph D. Winter Story (William Carey Library, 2013) shows how the idiosyncratic but brilliant “social engineer” transformed the way evangelicals understand and do missions.
