"Art McPhee's biography of Bishop J. Waskom Pickett, involving research on three continents, is long overdue. He has done a great service to the Church in India in producing this monumental study. Pickett was one of the leading missiological innovators of the 20th century in India. The Church Growth Movement has its genesis in India and the work of Bishop Pickett."

Paul G. Hiebert
"In this powerful study, Art McPhee takes us into the life of one of the great, but often overlooked, mission heroes. He helps us not only understand the deep spiritual commitments that motivated J. Waskom Pickett, but also the complex sociocultural and political arenas in which he served. In doing so, McPhee helps us grasp what mission service truly is, and shows us what God can do through a life truly committed to Him."
