Abstract

The Church’s mission in Asia has been going on for two millennia. Felipe Gómez sketches in broad strokes the history of missionary efforts in different parts of the continent. From the first century onwards, multifaceted saga of Christian mission in Asia involved the laity; Christian traders and migrants inconspicuously enhanced the laying of the groundwork for the Gospel proclamation. The radiance in the lives of holy laymen and laywomen and the blood of lay martyrs are eloquent signs of God ever at work in the hearts of Asians.
