Blast from the Past: The Missionary Manual

Arthur found a little gem of a book at the CMS office the other day. Published in 1899, it’s ‘The Missionary Manual’ by Amos R Wells. It’s written for the equivalent of youth groups, encouraging them to form a ‘missionary committee’ to support and be informed about overseas missionary work.

There are parts of it that remain piercingly relevant to today and parts that are hilariously outdated. I’ll be blogging through some of the chapters over the next little while as a lighthearted snapshot into missions history. Tomorrow I’ll start with the chapter on ‘Missionary Meetings’. (Just wait until we get to the roaring excitement of the chapter – yes, a whole chapter! – on ‘Missionary Maps’!)
