History of Christian Missions Since the Reformation, 3 Vols. – William Brown

Today’s free book is William Brown’s massive 3 Volume set on the history of Christian missions since the Reformation. What is particularly useful about this series is that it covers each of the major missionary agencies and their work rather than looking at each country in turn. This public domain set was kindly provided for digitisation by the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide.
