The Greatest Century of Missions by Dr. Peter Hammond is a treasure trove of incredible adventures, inspiring exploits and unbelievable achievements of some of the most extra-ordinary people in the most momentous era of Christian advance. This little volume documents the world-changing impact of a handful of Christian missionaries during the last half of the 18th and the first half of the 19th centuries.
These brave individuals overcame severe criticism and crippling societal indifference to reach out to nations that were rife with disease, barbarism, cannibalism, and slavery. They endured tremendous persecution, heartache, and death, all in the cause of bringing the Christian gospel to people in darkness.
This book will be an invaluable resource for pastors and missionaries, and a textbook for senior homeschoolers, Christian schools, and Bible colleges.
