Reflection Questions
  • What is the actual historial link between Moody’s work in England and the formation of the Student Volunteer Movement in America?

  • What link is there between the origin of the CE movement and the SVM? And what relation did there continue to be?

  • What parallels or contrasts are there between William Carey’s experience with his home board and that of Hudson Taylor?

  • What is the background and origin of the “Faith” Mission Movement, and was its name fully adequate?
