It started with a question: is Christ’s call in Matthew 28, to make disciples of all the world, for all Christians for all time?
In 1792, William Carey had noticed that his contemporaries no longer sought to share the gospel with the same zeal as the new believers of the early church. In The Enquiry, he counters this apathy with a theological justification for missions, a history of missionary activity and a survey of the world. He then turns to persuasion, arguing against common objections to sending missionaries and convincing his readers that a missionary society should be formed. Carey’s work was a success and resulted in the founding of the Baptist Missionary Society.

- Will need a second read through
My first impression is not very good. I understood about half of the book itself. It has an uncommon vocabulary which made it hard for me to understand. It is very intellectual, theological, and comprehensive when considering worldview. If I can i will re-review this again once i finish for the second time.
