This series of lessons is intended to deal, from a distinctly Christian point of view, with the origin, nature and development of religion, the Christian missionary approach to people of non-Christian faiths, and the principal features of some of the great non-Christian religions of the world. It will be endeavored to bring out the difference between the “modern” views of religion and the Biblical view. The description of some of the non-Christian faiths is intended to eanble to the student to havea better understanding of the problems and difficulties faced by the Christian missionary enterprise throughout the world. An intelligent interest in missions requires some understanding of the non-Christian religious systems of the world, from which the church seeks to win converts. – Johannes G. Vos, from the Preface.
