Catch the Wave! leads Christian readers on a persuasive exploration of involvement in what God is doing in the world today. Setting a foundation both Scripturally and statistically, the author describes Jesus's commandment to go into all the world and preach the good news, and the fact that great areas of the world still lack an indigenous Christian church.

An appendix describing helpful organizations, books and even Websites is included. Recommended for every young Christian interested in expanding their horizons and caring for their neighbors.
