Paul William Harris book examines the career of Rufus Anderson, the central figure in the formation and implementation of missionary ideology in the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Corresponding Secretary of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions from 1832 to 1866, Anderson effectively set the terms of debate on missionary policy on both sides of the Atlantic and indeed long after his death. In telling his story, Harris also speaks to basic questions in nineteenth-century American history and in the relationship between American culture and the cultures of what later came to be known as the third world.

Industry Reviews

"Schweiger's book is gracefully written, well researched, provocative, and has important implications for the future study of southern religion." - Religious Studies Review "...we are indebted to Harris for expanding our knowledge of Anderson and for providing an alternate perspective that stimulates us to reexamine the accepted historical wisdom about him."--International Bulletin of Missionary Research
