Editorial Reviews

"Despite these concerns, Christian Mission is a valuable additionto the growing literature on world Christianity . . . our overallunderstanding of Christianity as a world religion is significantlyincreased by Robert's work." (Christian Century, 8 March2011)

"Robert's book, by drawing on more recent scholarshipincorporates a global view and puts world Christianity at thecenter of the narrative, where it belongs, This re-writing" of thehistory of Christian missions has just begun and likely will occupyscholars for years to come." (Church History, June2010)"This work is a valuable contribution to the subject."(CHOICE, December 2009)"Roberts helpfully reminds thereaders that this...must be understood by accounting for thevarious players and settings in which it unfolds: "It is importantto study the spiders, but it is equally important to notice theweb" (177).Christian Mission, appropriate as a college or graduatelevel text, is a commendable introduction to those seeking to makesense of this tangled web." (Missology, 2010)"[This book] does alot of things (including a chronological and thematic study of 2000years of Christian mission!). Along the way, Robert points out thatChristian missionaries have done much good for the societies theyhave entered." (The Gospel Coalition, January 2010)

"A masterful survey of mission in Christian history from thevery origins of the religion to the present. … It should berequired reading for any undergraduate course on Christianity orworld religions." (International Bulletin of MissionaryResearch, October 2009)

"Robert unerringly focuses on the most important issues. She isespecially good on the persistence of gender issues in missionhistory." (Christian Century, October 2009)
