Ralph D. Winter: Early Life and Core Missiology

By Greg H. Parsons

Ralph Winter was endlessly fascinating, but this is not the best book to get an understanding of his life. This is an academic work converted into a book. It only focuses on the earlier years of his life, up until 1976. So much of his substantial work was done after that. Also, it has the trappings of a doctoral dissertation rather than a biography. A much more helpful book on his life would be that by Harold Fickett, The Story of Ralph Winter. Still, if you are a serious student of Ralph Winter’s work, here is a resource.
