William Carey has rightly been acclaimed as the chief architect of the modern missionary movement. Although others were active in spreading the gospel outside traditional Christian countries before Carey, his foundation of the Baptist Missionary Society in England in 1792 launched the organized effort to proclaim Christ in new lands. This lecture analyses the factors in his formation, the advantages he possessed in his ministry in India and the difficulties he faced before examining the results of his work.

David Bebbington is Professor of History at the University of Stirling, where he has taught for over forty years. Before that he was a Research Fellow at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. His publications include Evangelicalism in Modern Britain: A History from the 1730s to the 1980s.

This lecture is part of our 2018 Summer Evening Public Lecture Series.

Dr. Bebbington will be teaching the class “History of Evangelicalism” from July 30 – August 3, 2018 as part of our 2018 Summer Programs. Learn more at rgnt.net/summer.
