Publisher's Summary

William's amazing journey to India would prove to be just the beginning of a missionary quest filled with hardship and heartache as well as tremendous victories. Often referred to as "the father of modern missions", William Carey displayed a single-minded determination to set his face like a flint to the task of bringing the gospel to those lost in darkness. His life of service and sacrifice is a guidepost to Christians of all generations. (1761-1834)

Stop what you're doing and buy this book

William Carey was a cultural and spiritual revolutionary. In this book, you'll learn English, Dutch, French, and Indian history. You'll learn about how the "Father of Modern Protestant Missions" labored tirelessly for gender-equality, religious tolerance, science, and education -- all in addition to evangelism, preaching, and starting churches. You'll also hear stories of unbearable heartache and the faith that overcomes such obstacles. Christians and non-Christians alike owe it to themselves to see how the life and legacy of William Carey stands out as a shining example of cultural and religious transformation.

Inspiring story about never giving up.

William's story is a very inspiring story of how hard work and determination can bring you a long way. This man was never deterred despite many opticals. The reader of this book is interesting and clear. Definitely worth your time.

Good!

"Expect great things from God, achieve great things for God!"
Though there are many, many things I question about William's actions, God redeemed them all for His Glory! Grateful that God works, even in our flawed human weaknesses.
