Expect Great Things, Attempt Great Things
William Carey and Adoniram Judson, Missionary Pioneers
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"The names William Carey and Adoniram Judson are easily recognized as the pioneers of Baptist missions. This volume helps us see them in a new light--as the forerunners of a multicultural world Christianity. This exciting volume brings fresh perspectives to the origins of modern missions. Yeh and Chun have done a fabulous job in assembling a range of authors who deepen our understanding of these legendary leaders."
--Dana L. Robert, Professor of World Christianity and History of Mission, Boston University School of Theology
"This book is a thoughtful theological reflection on the life and work of two significant pioneer missionaries. I strongly commend this book not only to students but also to mission strategists, theologians, historians, and others interested in Christian missions."
--Prosperly B. Lyngdoh, Associate Professor of Missions, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary
"This book addresses neglected issues, fills important gaps, and affords widened perspectives in our understanding of Carey, Judson, and the early missions movement. Informative, encouraging, and inspiring, this is an important book."
--Gregory A. Wills, Professor of Church History, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Perhaps what is most remarkable about these figures of two centuries ago is that they continue to instruct us on points of missions, theological currents, and intercultural interactions. Baptist scholarship is also enriched by the variety of Baptists worldwide who have lent their voices to this commemoration. It has plainly charted a new future."
--William H. Brackney, Distinguished Professor of Christian Thought and Ethics, Acadia University
"For those who have wondered whether there was still a place for missions history in the emerging discipline of world Christianity, with its strong emphasis on the indigenous reception of the gospel over missionary transmission, Expect Great Things, Attempt Great Things gives a strong affirmative answer."
--Mark Shaw, director, Centre for World Christianity, Africa International University
