    Art McPhee¿s ¿Road to Delhi" is an absorbing read¿so much s

    Art McPhee’s “Road to Delhi" is an absorbing read—so much so, I literally could not put it down. It effortlessly drew me into the life of an extraordinary missionary to India in the last decades of British rule and early years of the new nation. Bishop J. Waskom Pickett’s prickly encounters with Gandhi, close friendship with Nehru and most of India’s early leaders, meetings with two U. S. Presidents in behalf of India, and heroic efforts to save thousands of lives during the communal bloodshed following Independence are part of that story. The bishop’s missiological discoveries and innovations, initiatives in establishing health care and hospitals, and coordination of international disaster relief are another part. And there is much more. Of him, the missiologist Donald McGavran said, "I lit my candle at his fire." Methodists, in particular, will find Pickett’s story inspiring, but anyone interested in the world missionary movement during this era will find in this volume an unmatched trove of detailed information. This is a monumental, yet highly readable, biography that warrants careful study.
