The world's 690 million Buddhists need Christ. What can one person do?

A simple first step is to equip oneself with good information about Buddhist people - information to pray effectively, information about how to share the gospel in an effective and sensitive way, information to motivate yourself and others to action.

Toward this end, Global Mapping International is pleased to announce the CD-ROM edition of Paul Hattaway’s extensively-researched and beautiful guide, Peoples of the Buddhist World.
