A beautifully produced biography of the ‘father of modern missions’. Pearce Carey’s compelling pages convey the very atmosphere of that extraordinary period of missionary advance. This life of Carey is structured around a series of remarkable events, always unplanned and unexpected, which opened the way to undreamed of achievements. Carey and his colleagues overcame mountainous obstacles to become the most productive church planters and Bible translators of all time. No other work compares with this moving treatment.

In 1793 William Carey - universally regarded as the 'father of modern missions' – sailed from Dover to Calcutta to begin the most celebrated forty years in the annals of missionary achievement.
Sustained through early years of privation and heartache, Carey – together with the colleagues who joined him – not only accomplished more than any missionary before or since, but by his example lit a fire of missionary zeal through all the Christian churches of Britain and America.
This outstanding biography 'towers like an o'ertopping alp above the other records'. S. Pearce Carey, distinguished great-grandson of the missionary, was a 'master of the biographical craft'. Here he movingly unfolds the Carey story to display the man, and also the wonderful providences of God that led him throughout his remarkable labours.
Few Christian biographies so greatly inspire, move and inform as this superb account of the country shoe-maker who became the best known missionary in Christendom, second to the apostle Paul.About the Author:
