The book contains 92 alphabetical entries—52 of the entries teach you more about specific countries and 34 focus on specific people groups. Within each entry, you’ll find facts and a brief history of the country (or people group) as well as prayer suggestions.
For example, the entry for Albania shows a flag with a double-headed eagle, a small map, and various pictures coupled with a brief history of the country. A “Do You Know?” section informs readers that the famous missionary Mother Teresa came from Albania.
The book also contains short chapters explaining different basic tenants of the major world religions (Animism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism), a small glossary, helpful maps, and additional ideas for getting involved.
Overall, this is a great resource for those who have a heart for reaching the world with the gospel.
