The year 1810 marks the start of the North American foreign missions movement, which began with typical American enthusiasm and vigor but was in need of practical grounding. This volume explores important facets of the development of North American foreign missions, paying particular attention to the role that agencies such as the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions played in shaping the theology, theory, and policy of evangelistic activities overseas.Distinguished by its focus on key events taking place at home rather than on happenings in the foreign mission field, this book sheds light on significant yet neglected topics, including the impact of slavery debates on foreign missions, the emergence of distinctive mission strategies for women, the role of the social gospel as a missionary ideology, and the contribution of foreign missions to the creation of a global evangelical network.ContentsGeneral Editors' PrefaceContributorsAcronymsIntroductionWilbert R.
