PREFACE On returning from a journey through the Farther East I was asked to prepare this book as an aid to people in their study of the missionary enterprise. My oriental journey was not intended as a tour of the mission stations. My chief desire was to meet the natives themselves, to look through their eyes, and gain some glimpse of their facial characteristics and their point of view. But I soon found that the best possible approach to the soul of India or China was not through the European government official or the European trader, both of them aloof and sometimes cynical, but through the missionary, whose life has been poured into the lives around him. Through the courtesy of missionaries I found windows everywhere opened into native life, doors flung wide, and hands out stretched. I have not attempted to set forth facts except as they illustrate principles. The facts have been col lected in amazing number and variety by Dr. Dennis in his three encyclopedic volumes Christian Mis sions and Social Progress. But the very wealth of facts now available may hinder vision. Our real need is a clearer definition of what we are trying to do. Each generation must redefine its object. The preaching of the glad tidings must ever occupy a foremost place in missionary enterprise. Evangelism is the cutting edge of effort. The persuasion of the human will to righteousness is indispensable. But a complete message is a message to the whole man, and aims at the entire transformation of both the individual and society. A large part of what is here printed was delivered in April, 1914, before the students, faculty, and friends of Crozer Theological Seminary, as The Samuel A. Crozer Lectures. I cannot adequately express my indebtedness to many friends throughout the Orient, to the officers of the Missionary Societies and the Missionary Education Movement, to Mrs. John E. Clough for permission to quote from Dr. Clough's Autobiography, now in press, and to Dr. James Quayle Dealey, Professor of Social and Political Science in Brown University. All of these, without assuming any responsibility, have given me much helpful counsel. W. H. P...
