John Appleby looks at William Carey through his own distinctive spectacles, as one who himself lived in south India and ministered there for many years. Like Carey in his time, John Appleby clings in faith to a sovereign God, without which it would be nearly impossible to accurately understand Carey’s life and work.
This moving biography provide a unique and needed contribution to our understanding of Carey, the simple cobbler from Northamptonshire whose missionary labors transformed India forever.
Author John Appleby served with the Grace Baptist Mission for 38 years in South India and in the U.K.
This is a truly remarkable story, and anyone not familiar with the grand work of William Carey could find no better place to start than here. The story of his enduring gospel labors in India is well told here and heartily recommended.
