Overview

The role that the celebrated William Carey played at the outset of the modern missionary movement is fairly well known. What is relatively unknown, however, is the story of the band of brothers that mentored Carey and then supported him when he went to India: Andrew Fuller, John Ryland, John Sutcliff, and Samuel Pearce. And even less known is the story of the revival that transformed Carey's denomination and made it a powerhouse for missionary outreach. These stories are told in this book with the confidence that they can teach us much about living for God in our day.
