Cold, hard facts

I'm currently reading Revolution in World Ministries by K.P. Yohannan. One passage totally convicted me. I had to share it on my blog.

"The United States has about 5,000 Christian book and gift stores, carrying varieties of products beyond my ability to imagine -- and many secular stores also carry religious books. All this while 4,845 of the world's 6,912 languages are still without a single protion of the Bible published in their own language! ... Eighty-five percent of all Bibles printed today are in English for the nine percent of the world who read English. Eighty percent of the world's people have never owned a Bible while Americans have an average of four in every household ... Besides books, 8,000 CHristian magazines and newspapers flourish. More than 1,600 Christian radio stations broadcast the Gospel full-time, while many countries don't even have their first Christian radio station. A tiny 0.1 percent of all Christian radio and television programming is directed toward the unevangelized world."
