Close to the Listener recounts the often dramatic first hand experiences of the author in Christian radio broadcasting during the years 1975-2012. It begins in war-torn Laos in 1969 as the Vietnam war was reaching its conclusion. The action then moves to Philippines, China, Russia, Mongolia, Cambodia and Indonesia during days of massive political upheaval and intrigue. It was also a time of great technological change and innovation. The underlying theme is that of the versatile role of radio in the context of world missions – and God’s faithfulness. Endorsements: ‘Fascinating! I couldn’t put the book down.’ - Juergen Simonson, retired Anglican vicar ‘A great read! I am enjoying your book very much.’ - Dr Graham Mytton, former director of BBC Research ‘It serves as a documentation of the history of several Christian radio ministries including a church planting rarely seen. It is an autobiography in a wider sense... It presents the main mandate of the church in terms of practical accomplishment and part of contemporary global church history.... Delightful is the holistic approach. The interest sustained throughout is not confined to a certain set of readers but surely to a wide variety, inviting them all, in their diversity, to only one spiritual message which comes through powerfully.’ - Dorothea Killus, Church historian
