Moravian Missions: Twelve Lectures, was originally given to Andover Theological Seminary and to the Theological Department of Boston University. Each lecture illustrates the power and effectiveness of the missionary work of the Moravian Church. The first describes the origin, faith, polity, and discipline of the Unitas Fratrum, as the brotherhood is called. The second gives a detailed account of Zinzendorf, the German nobleman, under whose influence the spirit of evangelization was developed. The remaining lectures trace several lines of missionary efforts that span the globe.

Praise for the Print Edition

It will be remembered how much Wesley owed to the Moravians, and indeed nearly all denominations owe much to them. Dr. Thompson’s volume—which is very thorough, and the result of a faithful study of the records—will do much to draw attention to the subject. To theological students it should be especially recommended.

British Quarterly Review

The Moravian Mission will always be intensely interesting, and Dr. Thompson has written his important volume in the consciousness of that.

London Quarterly Review

Exceedingly instructive and spiritually stimulating. The very nature of the fields in which the missionary work of the Moravians has chiefly lain, has made that work a wonderful test of the nature and wonderful illustration of the power of the Gospel.

The Presbyterian Review

Not the least interesting feature in the author’s method is his skillful interweaving of confession and testimony from the lips of native converts, revealing with life-like clearness the change through which they have passed, and the measure of character and spiritual perception they have gained. Indeed, as a whole, the book blends the charm of romance with the worth of reality, and deserves the attention of all who would follow the noblest work and the most heroic workers of our times.
