Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ looks at the cost of bringing the gospel to the nations, and the fact that it is often accompanied by the suffering of those involved.
Here is a little synopsis:
The price William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton paid to translate the Word of God, pave the way for missionary mobilization around the world, and lead the hostile to Christ was great. Yet their stories show how the gospel advances not only through the faithful proclamation of the truth but through representing the afflictions of Christ in our sufferings.
