Posnett through and through, and he portrays him with clarity and a deep understanding of all his many-sided greatness. In these pages we meet Posnett; the college student; the young missionary determined to master a new language; the first to bring the Christian message to many villages; the rescuer of thousands from famine; the teacher and translator; the far-sighted administrator; the builder of a great church in a spiritual as well as a temporal sense. We see here one who was filled with love and compassion for men, possessed by the one great unswerving purpose of bringing them to his Saviour, and eager above all to ‘burn out for God’.”
