Excerpt from Religions and Religion: A Study of the Science of Religion, Pure and Applied The centenary of the Wesleyan Missionary Society suggests many different lines of thought to those who would gather the lessons of the past in the hope of securing a future worthy of that past. The line I shall try to pursue is dictated to me by obvious conditions. I had clung to the hope that the honour of celebrating our centenary in a Fernley Lecture would fall to a far-sighted missionary statesman, who gave all his powers of brain and heart to the evangelizing of India, and when, after many years' devoted service, ill-health drove him home, left his mark indelibly on the Mission House as a man of vision. But the same cause that has successively terminated Mr. W. H. Findlay's direct service of the Missionary Society in India and at home has now operated to deprive us of a Centenary Lecture the quality of which the friends of Foreign Missions in other Churches could anticipate almost as surely as we ourselves. The dangerous privilege is reluctantly taken up by one who has studied the foreign field only from afar, with the memorable exception of one brief visit to the lovely islands of the West where John Baxter and Thomas Coke first planted our missionary banner. Less than four weeks' experience, even in a country where there is hardly any preaching to non-Christian people, made an immense difference to my understanding of missionary problems.
