The Encyclopedia of Missions and Missionaries is the ninth and final volume of the acclaimed Religion and Society series, focusing on the historical impact of missions over the centuries.
Encyclopedia of Missions and Missionaries: Volume 9 of Religion & Society
The Encyclopedia of Missions and Missionaries provides non-specialists with an overview of a phenomenon without which any attempts to understand, interpret, or assess the major social, economic, and political movements of the past two millennia are inadequate, if not futile. This goal is achieved by means of a series of 160 articles, written by reputable scholars representing several key disciplines whose scholarly interests naturally intersect with Christian missionary history, theory, and practice.
