Reflection Questions
  • Discuss the implications and appeal of Malthus’s Essay on the Principle of Population (see Hill, Buckler).

  • Tocqueville, whose 1830s book Democracy in America we encountered earlier, wrote of Manchester, England: “Everything in the exterior appearance of this city attests the individual powers of man; nothing the directing power of society.” What are some of the things he might have had in mind?

  • Thinking ahead: With the benefit of hindsight, what are some missiological consequences of demographic trends which you can see but which apparently were not obvious to mission leaders of a century ago?
