From a cobbler's shop in rural England, William Carey went on to become renowned as 'the father of modern missions'.
Driven by a burning desire to make Christ known, he spent the last forty years of his life in India. Despite his lack of education and many hardship (including the long-term depressive illness of his first wife Dorothy and the deaths of three children), he learnt several languages, translated the Bible, preached the gospel, administered a mission organization, and campaigned against evils in society.
Carey's example has inspired many to become cross-cultural missionaries. This biography highlights the vision of God that motivated him, and challenges us to recover his sense of mission to the whole world.
