Author Bio

Johan Herman Bavinck (18951964) was a pastor in the Dutch Reformed Church and a missionary in Indonesia. He was also professor of missions and practical theology at Kampen and Free University in Amsterdam, where his uncle, Herman Bavinck, famously served as professor of dogmatics.

Editorial Reviews

The ancient church conducted missionary work as though it were self-explanatory. . . . [We] are today probably more conscious than past generations that theoretical problems concerning principles, which can be answered by Scripture alone, lurk behind the countless practical problems which beset the church.
