Works by George Smith
Description: William Carey is often considered the “father of modern missions” as his missionary
work in India set the standard for Christian evangelism. This biography, written by
George Smith within 50 years of Carey’s death, tells the missionary’s story. Smith’s
admiration of the author is obvious, but this partiality does not take away from the project
as a whole. Along with taking the reader through Carey’s life, he also includes many of
the missionary’s personal letters and sermons, allowing readers to engage with Carey as
Calvin College. Last modified on 10/17/18. Contact the CCEL.
