Three Centuries Of Mission - Daniel O'ConnorContinuum, 2000, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good+.
First in this edition. From the cover: “From colonial South Carolina to Mao’s China and from a slave plantation in Barbados to the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa, the Church of England has been in mission through its chartered agency, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, since 1701, building a worldwide network of churches in the Anglican Communion. This new and expansive history, published to mark the Society’s tercentenary, tells a compelling global story. It includes a series of essays by an international group of scholars who add their distinctive perspectives: a history of mission to the Mohawks, the trials and achievements of missionary wives and discussion of the evolving role of the church in Bangladesh, Ghana and Zambia at the beginning of the new millennium.”
