"Compiled as a practical aid for those studying for missionary work." The author, Rev. R.R. Wright, Jr., was a bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The work is divided into twelve lessons, covering the history of missionary work from the time of the Gospels to the modern era. It is written in a question and answer format, like a catechism, designed to give the missionary student a firm grounding in historical background and current practices. It also discusses the establishment of the A.M.E. church, both in America and abroad. Slightly fragile and likely heavily used at the time of publication, we locate a single institutional copy in OCLC, at Emory University.
