QUARTERLY REVIEW.-"The tale of missionary heroism . . . records many instances of lifelong perseverance, some crowned with marvellous success."
NEW ZEALAND CHURCH NEWS.-"A lasting monument to glorious successes in the Mission-field of the wide world."
ANGLICAN CHURCH MAGAZINE." Marvellous and fascinating . . book that will be indispensable to every student of modern Church history."
RELIGIOUS REVIEW OF REVIEWS.-" A monumental record of a great work... excellently done. . . . The thanks of the Missionary world as much as of the S.P.G. itself are due to Mr. Pascoe, who has so ably carried [it] to a successful conclusion. . . . It is a marvellous compilation, in which the clearness, and accuracy, and sufficiency of the information afforded are as striking as the grip of the subject in all its bearings needful for the condensation of so much history into a single volume."
INDIAN CHURCH QUARTERLY REVIEW.-" We doubt whether any work of an historical nature has been published within the present century of such general interest to Churchmen. . . . We have been surprised and gratified, again and again, at the skill with which the compiler has condensed original documents, and at the same time has given us a continuous narrative which is not only readable, but is presented in a most attractive and interesting style."
BOMBAY DIOCESAN RECORD." To those who in the thick of the Church's Missionary work find their hearts not unfrequently bowed down within them with the sense of the stupendousness of the work, and the apparent slowness of results yielded, this goodly book must surely come as a real and welcome refreshment. To the Church at large, while it is a work fraught with the intensest interest to every intelligent observer of her progress, it will also prove an unanswerable vindication of the reality of her evangelistic labours against all those who would make it their task to impugn it. . . . Nothing could demonstrate to us more clearly that the Church's progress, if seemingly slow, and perhaps at times hardly perceptible to those carrying it on, is yet one of steady and massive advance all along the line."
NATIONAL CHURCH.—“The information here so vividly presented and so orderly arranged, though primarily interesting to those who feel at heart the supreme importance of extending the Gospel to all the regions of the habitable globe, yet will have its interest to the student of modern civilisation, to the student of foreign languages and dialects, and of geography, and to the philanthropist, treating as it does of medical missions, of education, of manners, customs, and superstitions, of languages and dialects in foreign parts. No work that has hitherto appeared has diffused so much light as the present volume on the various aspects of heathenism. It is abundantly clear that no Society has done more for the extension of the Gospel, not only among our colonists abroad, but throughout the heathen world."
