Overview

Excerpt from The Nearer and Farther East, Outline Studies of Moslem Lands and of Siam, Burma, and Korea

This, the eighth text-book issued by the Central Committee on United Study of Missions, while it begins a new series, is closely allied with the seven volumes previously published under Latin titles. These are now issued in library edition with English titles, as follows: "The Beginnings of Missions," Louise Manning Hodgkins; "India," Caroline Atwater Mason; "China," Arthur H.Smith; "Japan," William Elliott Griffis; "Africa," Ellen C. Parsons; "The Island World of the Pacific," Helen Barrett Montgomery; "Missions and Social Progress," Anna Robertson Brown Lindsay.

Our present volume, "The Nearer and Farther East," consists of two parts, - "Moslem Lands," by Rev. Samuel M. Zwemer, D. D., and "Siam, Burma, and Korea," by Rev. Arthur Judson Brown, D. D.

Dr. Zwemer presents the terrible need and marvellous opportunity of the vast almost untouched Mohammedan fields, while Dr. Brown paints a picture of progressive missionary effort in comparatively small but important countries.

The study offers greater variety than those heretofore presented, while maps, charts, pictures, and library issued by the Central Committee will afford much illustrative material.

Dr. Zwemer has edited the book and furnished valuable assistance on maps and charts.
