Can Africa Be Won by William Roome

William John Waterman Roome [1865-1937], Can Africa Be Won?

This book has one purpose.

To reveal something of the Wonderlands of Africa, the conditions of the People, the extent and problems of Africa’s Evangelisation, the life of its Missionaries, so that Home Christians may see, know and feel what their Representatives in the Advance Line of the Kingdom of God have to face.

Also, it is hoped some consideration as to ways and means, the personnel, and possibilities of the future may help to hasten the day where every Ethiopian’s outstretched hands shall be grasped in loving and intelligent sympathy.
