I needed it for a college course. It definitely provokes a lot of thought. Very interesting stories. These people are amazing.

Mission Legacies is a collection of articles of biographies of Modern Missionary Movement written by several renowned theologians, scholars, and mission practitioners. This book conserves the crucial work of pioneer missionaries, especially Western pioneers, who played creative roles in turning a global vision of the kingdom of God into global reality. The editors- Anderson, Coote, Horner, and Phillips have organized the biographical mission stories into seven sections. Four sections are grouped into `promoters and interpreters, theologians and historians, theorists and strategists, and administrators; and three sections are regionally arranged: Africa, China, and Southern Asia. In each article a specific writer briefly looks at mission pioneer's background as to how he or she impacted the church, mission field and society with his/her distinguished qualities of visionary call and mission approaches. Though these biographies are not elaborate ones, the volume records most significant areas of missionary work in a brilliantly nutshell form that readers not only understand missionaries' sacrifices and contributions in their missionary endeavors, but also draw inspirations from the book. This volume serves as a standard reference work, a sourcebook for sermon thoughts, and a devotional guide for pastors, and mission interpreters, theologians and missiologists, and theological students.

This is an excellent resource for those interested in the development of modern Mission theory. The book is produced in a concise dictionary format, with articles on over 70 prominent figures from a variety of traditions. Each article provides a biographical overview of the subject personality, a summary of their main contributions to Mission, and a discussion of their central writings. Articles conclude with a select bibliography of foundational sources that provides the reader with an excellent starting point for further reading and research.
Because the book focuses upon those in Mission who have left a literary record, there are few women who are examined in these pages. Women missionaries (generally) tended not to write treatises on mission theory and practice. So, even though they were central to Christian Mission during the time period covered, they are virtually absent from this volume. This should not be counted as a fault, however. Rather, the reader should keep in mind the limits of what the book covers.
This book should be in the library of anyone interested in Christian Mission. Excellent.

Mission Legacies is an attractive, durable hardback book of missionary biographical articles published by the American Society of Missiology through Orbis Books. It is divided into several major divisions: "Promoters and Interpreters," "Theologians and Historians,""Theorists and Strategists," and "Administrators." The chapters of this book first appeared as articles in the "International Bulletin of Missionary Research" beginning in 1977. Chapter assignments were made in a "serendipitous fashion over a period of about twenty years", as editors chose well-known contemporary church historians to write the biographical profiles.
Some of the famous 75 names are from the late 1700's, but most are from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. They were chosen without regard for disciplinary, national, or denominational backgrounds, though there are only six women and six representatives of the two-thirds world among them. This will no doubt be different if a later edition is published.
Though the articles are scholarly, they are very readable and interesting. This will serve primarily as a reference book, but lovers of world missions and biography will find themselves often dipping into it for information and inspiration. I was pleased to find such diversity as Pius XI and William Carey, such educators and promoters as A.J. Gordon, John R. Mott and W.O. Carver, and such famous missionaries as David Livingstone, Hudson Taylor and Lottie Moon. I was glad to see historians like Kenneth Scott Latoureette and Stephen Neill, such innovative missionaries as Frank Laubach and E. Stanley Jones and such missions strategists as John Nevius, Roland Allen, D.T. Niles and Donald McGavran. In these pages, students of world Christianity "can gain insight into the spiritual and human dynamics that produced the modern Christian missionary movement". This book, now in its fourth printing, should be of interest to all students of World Christianity and Mission.
