    This biography of William Carey, "the father of modern missions," is a thorough but (in places) difficult read. It is a re-release, originally published in 1923 by Carey's great-grandson. Carey's four decades in India are a powerful testimony of what God can do through a life fully dedicated to Him. The author does a commendable job chronicling both the blessings and the hardships of this unique missionary's career. Some familial biases surface through the absence of some of the more personal aspects of Carey's life, such as his first wife's mental illness and the burden that must have engendered. The role played by this former cobbler in the expansion of the Gospel remains a living testimony to the grace of God and a challenge to those who hear the call to missions today. This may not be the best biography of Carey's life and ministry, but it is a good place to begin.
