Overview

A detailed study in this book on the Biblical allegory of grafting wild olive branches onto the cultivated olive tree in Romans 11:17-24 enables the fresh interpretation of this allegory,
and provides the Biblical basis for a new strategy for Christian missions and evangelism. This strategy is reviewed and validated against the Bible and church history. This strategy would be especially effective in reaching peoples of other religions. At a time when Christianity has failed to penetrate into societies that are dominated by the great religions of the world, the contents of this book will provide new discussion material for Christian missionaries, missiologists and evangelists.

Beyond this, this book would also be an exciting and interesting read for Biblical scholars and students who have been wondering about the unreal grafting allegory in these Romans verses, and for those Christians who are interested in Bible study, and Christian missions and evangelism in general.
