THE SPREAD OF CHRISTIANITY IN THE MODERN WORLD TO MY COLLEAGUES WITH WHOM I HAVE SERVED FOR TWENTY YEARS IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE AMERICAN BOARD PREFATORY NOTE I delivered in October and November, 1913, in Mansfield College, Oxford, the Dale Lectures on The Expansion of Christendom and the Naturalization of Christianity in the Orient in the Nineteenth Century. The book was finished in 1915. Its publication has been delayed because of the war. The publisher has con sented that certain general considerations which are elaborated in that book shall appear in brief in the introduction to this. The publishers of this book have acceded to the same request. Apart from the statement of their common point of view which is thus provided for, it is hoped that the two books may serve as com plementary the one to the other. This book attempts a survey of the history of missions since the beginning of the modern era. It aims to depict the missionary movement against the background of general history. It seeks to present an outline of the main facts so far as this is possible within so small a compass. The other book assumes knowledge of the facts, both those which relate to the spread of the influence of European civiliza tion and as well those which directly concern the propa ganda for the Christian religion. It proposes to interpret this history and to discuss the philosophical and religious principles involved. EDWAED CALDWELL MOORE CAMBRIDGE, MASS.
