Positioning the Missionary addresses the place of missionaries in histories of colonialism, focusing on the encounter between John Booth Good, an Anglican, and the Nlaka'pamux of south-central British Columbia. Neither a biography nor a study of a single mission, this book uses Good's experience to offer fresh perspectives on the nature of colonial representation and power.

The main body of the book tackles some key questions, among them: How did Good set about converting the Nlaka'pamux and changing the way they lived? Did they accept Christianity, poach it selectively, or reject it en masse? In what ways did their relationship with Good influence their dealings with the colonial authorities and later with provincial and federal governments?
