Helen Barrett Montgomery was a prominent member of the women’s ecumenical movement of the early twentieth century. With a degree in classics from Wellesley College, Montgomery was a knowledgeable and compelling speaker, author, and teacher of Bible classes containing as many as 250 women.

The Bible and Missions is Montgomery’s second contribution to a series of instructional materials by women and for women. It presents her many years of thought on the significance of women and missions to Protestant culture. The useful new introduction locates Montgomery’s thought in historical context and makes clear what a force she was in her time.

A work of unquestionable importance to historians of the modern missionary movement.

—Benjamin L. Hartley, associate professor of Christian mission, Palmer Theological Seminary

Helen Barrett Montgomery’s skill as an educator, scholar, missiologist, and church leader is admirably revealed in this classic.

Helen Barrett Montgomery was a social reformer, a Baptist luminary, and a prominent intellectual in the American women’s ecumenical missionary movement. In this definitive biography, Kendal Mobley analyzes the intellectual development of the fascinating woman and locates her in the context of her rapidly-changing times. Mobley explores Montgomery’s early family influences, her education and spiritual development, and her relationship with other notable individuals of the era, including Susan B. Anthony. As Mobley points out, Montgomery believed that Christianity gave women equal spiritual and social status with men. Consequently, she saw “woman’s work for woman” as the cutting edge of a global movement for women’s emancipation.

Helen Barrett Montgomery does not fit neatly into our contemporary stereotypes of conservative and liberal, or feminist and traditionalist. This well-nuanced study of her life and influence places this incredible woman in the context of her times and presents her as a daring and influential figure in the world Christian movement. Well researched and well written.

Timothy George, dean and professor of divinity, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

A pioneering insight into the life and contribution of one of the most significant, yet overlooked, women of her time.

—Laceye Warner, associate professor of the practice of evangelism and Methodist studies, Duke University Divinity School

This is the finest work available on one of the most important women in the history of American Christianity.

—Dana L. Robert, Truman Collins Professor of World Christianity and History of Mission, Boston University School of Theology

With fresh eyes, Kendal Mobley has judiciously researched and unearthed new facets of this remarkable woman.

—Molly T. Marshall, president and professor of theology and spiritual formation, Central Baptist Theological Seminary

Mobley’s reinterpretation of Montgomery’s intellectual and social sphere [makes] Helen Barrett Montgomery a read for historians interested in ‘New Women’ who do not easily fit into preconceived categories.

About Helen Barrett Montgomery

Helen Barrett Montgomery (1861–1934) was a social reformer, a Baptist leader, and a prominent intellectual in the American women’s ecumenical missionary movement. In 1893 she founded a chapter of the Women’s Educational and Industrial Union. A graduate of Wellesley College, she gained distinction as the first woman ever elected to the school board in the city of Rochester, New York (1899), and the first woman ever elected to the presidency of the Northern Baptist Convention (1921). Montgomery was also the first woman to publish and translate the New Testament from its original Greek. The Bible and Missions is one of six books she wrote for the Central Committee on the United States of Foreign Missions.
