I was reading an article in the International Journal of Frontier Missions (Spring 2011) and I saw that I was quoted… which is kind of cool. I’m sure some get used to that, but it’s still fairly new to me.
I had written an article on the use of trade routes by the early Christians (“Nestorian” missionaries particularly) in spreading the Gospel across Asia in the first millenium AD. I had suggested that the trade route concept may have value today (utilizing shipping nodes such as airports and sea ports). However, the article in IJFM looked at the idea of the trade routes, but focused on the bazaar as being a potential point of access and spread for the gospel.
I think the author made a strong point… stronger than mine… and that is great. Below is the link for the article.
