Koinonia and Korea: Thoughts on Unification
This is a new anthology of essays by Fr. Archer Torrey that relate to North Korea and the future of the whole land. Released on the tenth anniversary of Fr. Torrey's passing, August 6, 2012, it is the first time that any of his writings have been published in both English and Korean in one volume. Anyone interested in this important work may order through us if your are outside of Korea or, if you are in Korea, directly from the publisher, Hong Sung Sa or at Christian books stores. If you are ordering from the US, the cost is $14 plus shipping: $12 by surface (takes about two months) or $20 by air. If you order several copies, shipping fees will vary.
