"THE FATHER AND FOUNDER OF MODERN MISSIONS ”
JOHN BROWN MYERS
ASSOCIATION SECRETARY OF THE BAPTIST MISSIONARY SOCIETY
S. W. PARTRIDGE & CO.
8 & 9 PATERNOSTER Row
WHIS work is the first of a series of Missionary
Biographies which it is the intention of the
Publishers to issue. It may be very earnestly hoped that the admirable proposal will be so encouraged as to be carried into effect, for we can conceive nothing more likely to promote Missionary enterprise than acquaintance with the labours and spirit of the men, who, in the high places of the Field, have been “the messengers of the Churches and the glory of Christ."
The price at which the biographies are to be published will render them suitable for general circulation by those friends of Missions who desire to create an intelligent and fervent interest in the evangelisation of the heathen world, as well as for presentation in the family and the school.
