Has the God who prepared the gospel for all people groups also prepared all people groups for the gospel? Don Richardson, author of the best-selling book Peace Child, has studied cultures throughout the world and found within hundreds of them startling evidence of belief in the one true God. In Eternity in Their Hearts, Richardson gives fascinating, real-life examples of ways people have exhibited in their histories terms and concepts that have prepared them for the gospel. Read how Pachacuti, the Inca king who founded Machu Picchu, the majestic fortress in Peru, accomplished something far more significant than merely building fortresses, temples or monuments. He sought, reached out and found a God far greater than anypopulargod of his own culture. And there have been others throughout the world, like him, who lived to receive the blessing of the gospel. Get ready to be amazed at these intriguing examples of how God uses redemptive analogies to bring all men to Himself, bearing out the truth from Ecclesiastes that God has also set eternity in the hearts of men. - Publisher.

A scholarly and clearly written and well documented review. Even better than what I remember of my first reading of it 25 years ago. My highest recommendation to those to whom this topic is of interest.

The premise of this book is that, embedded in most, if not all cultures of the world, are "cultural keys" which prepare them to receive the gospel. These include belief in a 'sky God', scapegoat-concept of sin-bearing, new birth rituals, and an expectation of people who will bring a book. He also personally found cultural keys in a group in New Guinea where he and his wife were missionaries. Their concept of a Peace Child opened their hearts to hear the gospel. Although there is merit in such a concept, as a way to contextualize the gospel, it is not absolutely necessary as a precursor to preaching the gospel. The gospel is powerful enough on its' own, and is able to soften the hearts of lost men and women.

The Truth Your Anthropology Prof Won't Tell You
Don Richardson offers a well-researched book that tells the truth which anthropology departments of major universities around the globe have hidden for decades: that monotheism preceded polytheism in culture, and that there was knowledge of basic biblical truth in cultures previously untouched by western culture. If you are unafraid to have your presuppositions about cultural evolution challenged, then dig into this volume, and see what your college professors kept hidden from you. What you find may change your life.
