This volume reprints essays by seven authors from three continents, including two authors from India, who tell the story of British missionary to India William Carey (1761- 1834), whose famous 'Enquiry', An Enquiry into the Obligations of Christians to use Means for the Conversion of the Heathens (1792), changed history and made him not only the 'Father of Protestant missions', but also a forerunner of William Wilberforce, fighting against social injustice and preserving historic Indian languages for the people through research and printing. Even though Carey's story has been told often, this volume concentrates on areas otherwise neglected: Carey's theology and vision, Carey's role as a social reformer, and Carey's role as a leading linguist of Indian languages.
