Abstract

95 especially in ecclesiology and ordination. A special strength is his know- ledge of the continental societies, especially Scandinavian, Swiss and Ger- man, and the many and complicated ways in which they were influenced by and influenced the British and North American societies. Altogether, this is a most useful and seminal book, which should be in any mission library. It is therefore the more unfortunate that its pub- lishers have not taken more care in its details. The English is sometimes awkward; there are far too many typographical errors, and, although there is a long and useful bibliography, there is no index. The notes are excel- lent and add much to the text, but they are presented as end-notes, not foot-notes, which makes an index even more necessary.- The would-be purchaser should also note that Lynx Communications now disclaim their connection with the book, and it is probably best to order it direct from Regnum Books, P.O.
