Inspired by the popular series of biographies from the International Bullentin of Missionary Research (IBMR) Mission Legacies provides 78 profiles of leaders in the Christian missionary movement, in a unique reference and resource for churches, libraries, students, and scholars. Mission Legacies tells the story of the missionary movement both in its classical achievements and in its time-bound weaknesses.
These biographies are solid, critical assessments of their subjects. Their authors are a “who’s who” of church historians, carefully chosen for their mastery of the life and significance of the leaders featured and the context in which they worked.
