He was an industrialist. An economist. A
medical humanitarian. A media pioneer. An educator. A moral reformer. A
botanist. And a Christian missionary. And he did more for the transformation of
the Indian subcontinent in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries than any other
individual before or since.
Many know of William Carey. Some know
about the specifics of his work and ministry. But few understand the profound
contemporary significance of his life. Few realize how much we owe the
increasing globalization of Christianity to the silent revolution he initiated.
Fewer still are aware of his legacy of sensitivity to the variety of issues
confronting true gospel witness in any culture.
This biography about the central
character in the story of India's modernization and transformation will help you
understand Carey's impact. But The Legacy of William Carey is more than a
biography. It is a charge to all Christians to respond in kind within our own
cultures, and to use Carey's example as our model for taking the light of the
Gospel into every corner of society. If we follow in his footsteps, not only
will lives be bettered this side of heaven, but hearts will be changed for
eternity--and entire cultures transformed for Christ.
Vishal Mangalwadi and his wife Ruth are
continuing Carey's work in modern-day India. Vishal is one of India's foremost
Christian intellectuals, the author of seven books, an inveterate evangelist and
a political activist.
