about

The Ecclesiastical History Society devoted two meetings to the topical theme of 'The Mission of the Church' and this sixth volume of Studies in Church History contains eleven papers on widely varying aspects of the subject. The theme of foreign missions is comprehensively examined, with papers on both the conversion of Europe and the missions to Asia and Africa. A later development considered if the missionary situation facing the church at home after the Industrial Revolution. The volume concludes with a masterly survey of the literature of missionary history by Bishop Neill.
