This monumental work fills the gap in the research and documentation of the Christian missions spanning nearly 2,000 years of world history. Never before has there been such extensive and comprehensive coverage of Christian missionary work with more than 2,400 original signed biographies by 350 authors from 45 countries. In a convenient A-Z format, the Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions provides not only an authoritative record of outstanding persons in the missionary movement, but also a sweeping historical account of worldwide achievement and impact.
