“A Concise History of the Christian World Mission: A Panoramic View of Missions from Pentecost to the Present”, A Critical Analysis
J. Herbert Kane’s A Concise History of the Christian World Mission: A Panoramic View of Missions from Pentecost to the Present fills a gap in the Christian world mission compendium. As beneficial as this work is, it should be noted that its purpose is not to serve as an in-depth tome of history, but instead, it is a brief overview to support “Dr. Howard’s opinion that all committed Christians should have a working knowledge of the Christian world mission.” Many Christians are very busy, so in taking Dr. Howard’s suggestion to heart, Kane has produced a work to educate Christians without burdening them with a work that is too weighty. The beauty of this text is that it stokes interest in the reader and provides a jumping-off point for further research.
