In response to yesterday’s post, Becky Lewis wrote in with her plea to consider making Stage 0 to be less than 0.1% Christian, in line with the Frontier Peoples methodology that has been recently circulating. This is fairly simple from a spreadsheet calculation perspective, but it does yield somewhat different results. Here they are:
The only change here is in the mix of Stage 0 and 1: Stage ‘0’ becomes closer to what other methodologies have tended to consider ‘least-reached’ or ‘unevangelized.’ I’ll leave it to others to comment any further on the usefulness of this change.
I will also be applying this to my Places database, but I’m not quite ready with #s from that yet.
