Memorial Project

In the early sixties or even late fifties, Homer Duncan wrote the booklet entitled God and Man. This later became The Living God booklet, which is now the Missionary Crusader’s primary evangelistic book. In round figures, 5,000,000 copies have been printed in 50 different languages. This includes the illustrated Living God, which was first proposed by and Operation Mobilization worker who drew the pictures for the first edition that was published in Hindi in April 1979. The pictorial or illustrated format was well accepted and the about figures include more than 1,000,000 copies of the pictorial format in more than 15 languages. Therefore, it seems only fitting that an edition of The Living God booklet be chosen as a memorial to Homer Duncan. Thus, it was planned to print 200,000 copies of the Living God booklet in the Burmese language of Myanmar (formerly Burma). This was done in co-operation with Rev. L. Sawi Thanga in Myanmar.

The Missionary Crusader has worked with Bro. Thanga for a number of years. In fact the first printing of the Living God booklet in Burmese was done back in November of 1962. We are grateful that the Missionary Crusader was able to work with Bro. Thanga to produce this booklet in memory of Homer Duncan. I know that Dad would be honored, that this project was undertaken with someone who had been a close friend over so many decades.
