Written by Michael A. G. Haykin
The eighteenth century was a time of remarkable missionary activity. As the British Empire expanded around the world, Christian missionaries followed in the wake of merchants and explorers to bring the gospel to places where Christ had never been named.
At the heart of this global missionary movement was William Carey. From humble beginnings in England, Carey journeyed halfway around the world to preach the gospel on the Indian subcontinent. Known as the founder of modern missions, Carey is often portrayed as a solitary trailblazer and pioneer. But that isn’t the full story.
In The Missionary Fellowship of William Carey, Dr. Michael A.G. Haykin explores Carey’s life and introduces us to the band of brothers who labored with him to spread the gospel on a global scale. As we follow their stories, we will discover how God uses Christian friendship to advance His kingdom and be encouraged to nurture deep, long-lasting, Christ-honoring friendships in our own lives.
“Pioneers such as William Carey gave birth to the modern missionary movement. It was Carey’s sense of evangelistic passion, set upon a clear foundation of biblical truth and confidence in the gospel, that compelled him to leave the safe confines of England and go to India. The full harvest of William Carey’s ministry will be known only in eternity. This new biography of Carey is a compelling presentation of the man, his theology, and his deep love for the nations. Haykin’s treatment is compelling, is warm-hearted, and will point beyond Carey to the Savior he loved so deeply.” -- Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr.
“Christian fellowship, friendship, and mission are inexorably linked. One cannot claim to be on God’s mission and live in isolation; in fact, any missional effort devoid of a community of friends and coworkers is vanity. I am thankful for Michael Haykin’s work reminding us—as Westerners—of the beauty of friendship with like-minded people and how this principle was visible in the life of William Carey, the father of modern mission. This book will be a blessing to those who are students of history, and there are many lessons to be learned in its pages that will help Christians be multipliers of God’s mission and ministry.” - Dr. Ed Stetzer
