Rick Shrader‘s Review:
One of my joys of perusing the used book stores is finding good biographies on great men of God. It is hard to go wrong reading about the life of William Carey! Carey called himself a “Dissenter” and not a “Churchman.” He was not an Arminian Baptist but neither was he a hyper-Calvinist as his friend John Rylands who told Carey that God if God wanted, He would save the heathen without their help. Rather, Carey believed, “If it be the duty of all men, where the Gospel comes, to believe unto salvation, then it is the duty of those who are entrusted with the Gospel to endeavour to make it known among all nations for the obedience of faith.” As “The Father of Modern Missions,” Carey is still causing churches around the world to “hold the ropes” while missionaries “mine for souls” in foreign fields.
