History is “His Story”: the account of God at work establishing His purposes and His Kingdom. In this course, Dr. Kane covers the historic development of the Christian world mission in chronological sequence from Pentecost to the birth of the modern missions movement (1800). He then introduces the modern period along geographical lines: Asia, Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Europe. The course culminates by evaluating the missionary achievements of the past and the prospects for the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed the study and the lectures. I would have gained more benefit if there would be some pdf notes of the lectures or even outlines to follow. But, overall, it was a very enriching time, and I thank you for making it available as you have.Richard, United States (US)
