MISSIONARY EXPANSION SINCE THE REFORMATION
BY THE REV. J. A. GRAHAM, M.A. MISSIONARY OF THE CHURCH OF SCOTLAND YOUNG MEN'S GUILD AT KALIMPONG, INDIA, AUTHOR OF 'ON THE THRESHOLD OF THREE CLOSED LANDS.' 145 ILLUSTRATIONS AND 8 MAPS. PEEFACE to KALIMPONG Eastern Hymalayas. February 1898.
This volume represents an attempt to give, in short compass, a general view of the principles, history, and present position of the Missions of the Keformed Churches. In dealing thus briefly with a subject so great and a literature so extensive, it is not easy to be at once compre-
hensive and interesting. The only trying part of an otherwise delightful task has been the necessity of forgoing very much that deserved to be included, and the Author can only hope that the book may supply a stimulating introduction to the further study of the entrancing and supremely important subject of Missions.
Many friends have contributed to the preparation of the book. Those who have helped with the illustrations are mentioned on page xv. Most of the chapters have been submitted to acknowledged authorities on the respective subjects. Chapters I. to VII. have been revised by Dr. George Smith, CLE., the Secretary of the Foreign Mission Committee of the Free Church of Scotland, and
the distinguished missionary historian and biographer; Chapter III. by Professor Dalman of the Delitzschianum, Leipzig, the Kev. Dr. Thomas Nicol, the Convener of the Church of Scotland's Committee on Jewish Missions, and the Rev. W. T. Gidney of the London Mission to the Jews, and author of Missions to the Jews ; Chapter Y. by the Rev. J. Klesel, Secretary of the Moravian Missionary Society; Chapter VIII. by the Rev. H. L. Mackenzie of Swatow, late Moderator of the English Presbyterian Church Synod; Chapter IX. by Mrs. A. L. Bruce, the daughter
of David Livingstone ; and Chapter XI. by the Rev. George Cousins of the London Missionary Society, and a writer on South Sea Missions, as well as by the Rev. Joseph Nettleton, late Wesleyan Missionary in the South Seas ; while Miss J. E. Brewis, Secretary of the Scottish
Auxiliary of the South American Missionary Society, assisted with Chapter XII.
Some of the many books which the Author has consulted are indicated in the text, and in this connection he would make special mention of the courtesy and kindness of the Rev. Dr. M'Murtrie, Convener of the Church of Scotland's Committee on Foreign Missions, of Mr. W. A. Taylor, M.A., F.R.S.E., Librarian to the Scottish Geographical Society, and of the Librarian of the Free Church of Scotland Mission Library.
The Rev. W. H. Hort of the Wesleyan Mission, Calcutta, and the Rev. Robert Kilgour of Darjeeling read most of the proof sheets while journeying with the Author to India. Mr. J. W. Douglas, Writer, Glasgow, has prepared the Index and seen the book through the Press.
To one and all of those friends the Author would express his sense of gratitude. He would also respectfully oflfer his thanks to the Editors of the Guild Library for their patience and forbearance and for their valuable suggestions and corrections.
