William Carey’s Theology

Cover Be keen to get going: William Carey's TheologyWilliam Carey’s famous ‘Enquiry’ (1792) changed mission history, and he is considered the “Father of Protestant missions”. Even though his life and work has been the topic of many books and articles, a study on his theology is the missing link of mission research. Dr. Schirrmacher, mission activist, historian and professor of missions, studies Carey’s theological motivation. He recovers the real change in theology, that made world mission possible.
