Excerpt from The Martyr of Erromanga: Or, the Philosophy of Missions, Illustrated From the Labours, Death, and Character of the Late Rev. John Williams

The work of Missions is incomparably the best medium through which to contemplate the cross of Christ and the mercy of God. The true history of that work supplies a body of the most convinc ing evidence in support of Christianity, that can be produced. Williams's Missionary Enterprises, alone, is of more real value than all the writings of a Clarke, a Butler, a Paley, a Chalmers, a Leland, and a Lardner, united. There Christianity appears arrayed in her Missionary costume. She presents her majestic form, and shows her beauteous face, on the battlements of a citadel reared by her own hands, with materials furnished by her own con quests. The fruit of Missions is her best defence; she asks, she needs, no other. Obedience to the Son of God wants no permission; deeds of the highest benevolence to a suffering world call for no apology. He who opposes the work of Missions.
