Endorsements & Reviews-

"In one blow this stout book replaces all previous vague, brief, and seriously erroneous summaries of the origins of missions in America . . . a definitive treatment."
Ralph D. Winter

"Contemporary Christian missions, desperately in need of a theology of mission, will benefit form a serious study of this book. Neglected episodes of missionary history are eruditely exploited to provide theological undergirding . . . Missiology . . . needs this stabilizing historical doctrinal emphasis."
Justice C. Anderson

"Charles Chaney makes an important contribution to the understanding of the development of the American missionary movement from its beginning . . . He demonstrates the unity and interaction of Indian, home and overseas missions in a single worldwide enterprise. Here is a wealth of knowledge organized and interpreted for our illumination which will give almost every reader an entirely new understanding of the mission of the American church."
R. Pierce Beaver

"I am writing to express my enthusiasm in view of the publication of The Birth of Missions in America. I shall be making use of it in my classes . . . a solid work in a neglected area and time period that will meet a need."
Hugo H. Culpeper

". . . an immense volume . . . meticulously documented and representing exhaustive research. It presents the most excellent primary source material that this reviewer has seen in a long time."
Helen E. Falls
