After this, Robert shows that the world of missions is significantly influenced by the political and sociocultural world. The postscript demonstrates the true meaning of missions in a global, postcolonial age through the telling of the gospel message.

Chapter one shows some significant ways that initiated the advancement of Christianity to become a global religion. The history of Christianity can be viewed as a movement, instead of a set of doctrines, or as a historical process involving cross cultural and linguistic boundaries brought upon followers of Christ Jesus.

The Rape of Nanking, also known as the Nanking Massacre was a six week period when mass numbers of Chinese men and woman were killed by the Japanese. Embarrassed by the lack of effort in the war with China in Shanghai, the Japanese looked for revenge and finally were able to win the battle. The Japanese moved toward the city of Nanjing also known as Nanking and invaded it for approximately six months. Even though the people of Nanjing outnumbered the 50,000 Japanese, they were not as masterful in warfare as their opponents. Chinese soldiers were forced to surrender to the Japanese and the massacre began in which around 300,000 people died and 20,000 women were raped.
