Home Missions in Action
Edith H. Allen

Reverberating with ardor! Edith H. Allen in Home Missions in Action unleashes an impressive reminder that Home Missions was a dynamic force through which the lands reeling from the aftermath of the world wars and bound by blinding binding fetters of ignorance and superstition could be reclaimed, educated, healed, and integrated. God’s kingdom needs to be built here on earth, where Christ will be supreme and from Him alone will the church draw her ideals and strength to improve all social conditions commencing with hearts surrendered to Christ. Wonderful!

"Responsibility of the Church and the Christian!" — A reviewer

Thoughts on Mission

Remarkably clear and succinct he deals with a variety of subjects like the Christian’s duty to the heathen, the true spirit of Missions, Christian stewardship, the great Commission and its import, the role of the laymen, the guilt of neglecting the unbeliever in Christ and the trials to be encountered! Awesome!

"Warms the heart!" — A reviewer

Astounding! Woman and Her Saviour in Persia by A Returned Missionary is an amazing account of 15 years of labor by Miss Fiske’s among the women of Persia.

"Simply astounding!"— A reviewer

Surveying the Mission Field
Roland Allen and Thomas Cochrane

Meticulous and enlightening record!

They propound that surveys are the basis of all co-operative work and very necessary if Christ’s great Commission is to be obeyed! Presenting clear statistics on the unequal distribution of missionary forces they advocate periodic surveys to assess the world as a unit to facilitate responsible administration. Comprehensive!

"Very informative survey!" — A reviewer

White Queen of the Cannibals

Anna Magdalena Johannsen

An indelible illustration of Gospel power, Everlasting Pearl by Anna Magdalena Johannsen brings to life a farmer’s daughter in 19th century China! Her story, narrated by a Christian missionary, carries us right into the city of Yüshan, the heart of China. Maintaining a high interest level throughout Pearl’s conversion to Christianity and how she helps to convert others, Johannsen shows how the light of the gospel penetrates the heart of one brought up in heathenism. Truly the Gospel spreads faster through the life and testimony of the converts themselves. Moving!

Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa
David Livingstone

Intrepid and invincible, David Livingstone in Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa includes his notes on the regions he explored and the people he encountered! Alongside his scrupulous records of intriguing encounters, Livingston also attacked the slave trade and was largely responsible for its end. A great missionary and a fearless explorer he contributed much to the knowledge about Africa. Untouched by the racism of his day, he stated things as he saw them, and won the Africans for Christ, alleviating their physical, social and spiritual ills. Riveting!

Life and Labors of Elder John Kline: The Martyr Missionary
Benjamin Funk

Awesome! Life and Labors of Elder John Kline, the Martyr Missionary Collated from his Diary by Benjamin Funk is an account of a little-known missionary with an almost unbelievable sense of accountability to man and God. Culled from his untiring and faithful diary entries for every single day of his work for twenty-nine years, John Kline’s life reads as an open book. With no reason to be ashamed before man or God, his martyrdom, shot by unknown assailants on his return home to Virginia was unexpected. Kline lives on!

"Very instructive!" — A Reviewer
