Description


Following the industrial revolution of the late eighteenth century, Christians in the West began concerted efforts to spread their faith across the globe. On the Missionary Trail is the story of two men sent to places as far-flung as the Kalahari, Tahiti, and Canton to track the spread of Christianity. For eight years, George Tyerman and Daniel Bennet braved storms, pirates, tigers, and powerful but intractable local leaders to chart the success of the London Missionary Society's thirty-year endeavor. A remarkable account of faith and bravery, On the Missionary Trail is a unique addition to the literature of the missionary encounter.
