Unreached People (not land masses!)


If the great commission is about people, why do we represent it with geographic maps? Geographic maps skew our perception of the task. Huge, unpopulated areas look like a priority, while geographically small regions with huge populations (like Bangladesh and Java) are overlooked, and the diverse populations of single but large countries (like India and China) are under-represented. This world map is a cartogram based on 2020 population estimates. Each pixel represents 100,000 people while the shading indicates the percentage of professing Evangelicals.
