Excerpt

ouls. Some day the "Actual" of Uganda will be better understood, and the inevitable shortcomings of even its Christian population realised, and then we shall be told that we deceived the public--although we have warned them over and over again.

But the larger part of this book is a revelation--so far as is possible--of the "Actual" of Hinduism and Caste. God grant that its terrible facts and its burning words may sink into the hearts of its readers! Perhaps, when they have read it, they will at last agree that we have used no sensational and exaggerated language when we have said that the Church is only playing at missions! Service, and self-denial, and prayer, must be on a different scale indeed if we are ever--I do not say to convert the world--but even to evangelise it.

EUGENE STOCK.

*****

A classic mission book by a dear, dear authoress. Caused quite a stir after its original publication, for it showed that missionary work is not all roses, but has many, many thorns.
