Don Edwards (Author)
Is Hearing Enough? makes the case for including literacy in evangelism and discipleship efforts in developing nations like India. Drawing on over 20 years of cross-cultural ministry experience, Don Edwards offers an insightful look at literacy’s key role in building a strong, healthy body of believers. Edwards looks at the crippling effects of illiteracy, examines Scripture’s view of literacy, and explains literacy’s value as a door-opener in communities that are resistant to traditional evangelism. The Great Commission commands us to “go and make disciples of all nations.” Likewise, we are called to fulfill the Great Compassion: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Both are expressions of Jesus’ love for people. Readers will be challenged to share the gift of literacy as a tangible act of obedience to Jesus’ two “Great” commandments.
