About this Item

Lafon presents his views on the stumbling blocks to the missionary work of the Church, what he calls the three forms of heathenism: "Idolatry," "Oprression," and a mixture of both. He presents examples of these forms as they exist in various world cultures, from China and India to the Sandwich Islands. However, his main thrust is that the heathenism of Opression exists in the U.S., in the institution of slavery, with the support of the Church. On pp. 14?15 he states, "While the missionary is endeavoring to correct the ruin into which oppression has plunged his fellow man . how must his hear sink within him when he reflects that the same oppression which it is costing so much to remedy, exists in his own country, and in the very church under whose patronage he is laboring. . Can the missionary feel his heart encouraged, and his hands strengthened, while he reflects upon this strange inconsistency and ruinous corruption in the Church?" 8vo. 23 pp. Removed from a nonce volume. Foxing throughout. Fold mark down center. Bookseller Inventory # 16857
