Title: Window on the World (Revised Edition)

Author: Jason Mandryk and Molly Wall (editors)

Publisher: InterVarsity Press

Publication Date: October 30, 2018

Format: Paperback

Length: 224 pages


Not only do many countries have high populations that don’t know about Christianity, many of those countries also have smaller people groups that Western Christians rarely hear about. Window on the World goes through dozens of these people groups alphabetically, explaining each group’s average lifestyle and history as well as what people can pray for each group.

This book gives a great view of people groups across the world (including many most American Christians have never heard of) to pray for, but also takes time to note great things God is already doing among those groups. The book also describes the major world religions in ways that children will easily understand. A fun, helpful resource for Christian families.
