Excerpt from Western Canada

Lightfoot, that the study of history was the best cordial for a drooping courage. I can imagine no study more bracing and exhilarating than that Of the modern expansion Of the Church of England beyond the seas during the past half century, and especially since the institution Of the Day of Intercession for Foreign Missions. It is only when these matters are studied historically that this expansion comes out in its true proportions, and invites comparison with the progress Of the Church in any similar period of the world's history since our lord's Ascension into heaven.

But for this purpose there must be the accurate marshalling of facts, the consideration Of the special circumstances Of each country, race and Mission, the facing of problems, the biographies of great careers, even the bold forecast Of conquests yet to come. It is to answer some of these questions, and to enable the general reader to gauge the progress of Church Of England Missions, that Messrs. A. R. Mowbray and co. Have designed a series of handbooks.
