Book Description

Addresses the nature of the influence of the European Enlightenment on the beliefs and practice of the Protestant missionaries who went to Asia and Africa from the mid-eighteenth century onwards, particularly British missions and the formative role of the Scottish Enlightenment on their thinking.


'This collaborative series of essays, provides a fascinating and scholarly approach to the relationship between the assumptions and values of the enlightenment and European Christian missionary endeavour. Clearly this is the marker for a further series of essays.' - The Church Times
