Reflection Questions
  • What kinds of challenges and problems did missions face in Asia during the 19th and early 20th centuries? Which attempts to solve them do you think were most helpful?


  • How would you account for the differential response to mission endeavors among various peoples of Asia or Latin America during this period? (Look at social and political factors also.)


  • What role did schools and other mission institutions (apart from the church) play in the introduction of Christianity in Asia? in the response to the gospel?
