"Written by 350 experts from 45 countries, the Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions contains more than 2,400 original, signed biographies portraying missionaries from the patristic age to the present, representing Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, Protestant, Pentecostal, independent, and indigenous churches. Arranged in a convenient A-Z format, the articles provide significant biographical information for all missionaries covered, including date and location of birth, places of service, and discussion of their writings, public achievements, and contributions to contemporary mission issues."
