While we hear fewer objections to foreign missions than formerly, we hear enough to warrant us in furnishing special literature on the subject. What we want is Open-minded, honest and thorough discussion on the part of those who know. Such discussion you may look for in this little quarterly from time to time.To begin with, here is the question about India. Many who have visited that country say Hindu ism is good enough for the Hindus. Now is it? That is the question. What we want is facts, and conclusions based on facts not guesses, or imaginings or longings, and certainly not mis statements or distortions, but clear, sheer reali ties. Who can and will tell us the truth?Our mind turned at once to Dr. J. P. Jones, of Madura, the well-known author of Krishna or Christ, the man who has thirty years of living and close association with the Hindus behind his judgment, no mere traveler but a citizen of India, the man who is a friend of the Hindus, and who has proved his friendship by a life of devoted service in their behalf. Hear him.And when you hear, pass the word along. This' false idea about Hinduism is in the air, and you can do a distinct service to the Kingdom and to India by giving Dr. Jones a hearing.Do you take this quarterly? If not you ought. In it the American Board prints much of its best material. We are not afraid to have you ex amine any of our recent numbers. It will not be a question of money with you (the price is only ten cents) but of taking the time to send in your subscription. If at this point we might make a suggestion, it would be in the words of the some what over-worked motto: Do it now.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
