Excerpt from Pioneering in Central Africa

The expanding genius of the Caucasian race is the mar vel of modern times. That the extension of the Christian religion accompanies this racial expansion is a significant and happy fact, Whether that accompaniment be in the nature of a cause or not. On the frontier of this line of battle are representatives of many phases of racial life. There are traders, scientists, government officials and missionaries at the remote front of the great army of progress.

It seems to be taken for granted that commerce, science and government are the great agencies of advancing civilization. Whether the propagandists of religion right fully occupy their place alongside these other three has been a matter of some debate. It is the belief of the author of the succeeding pages of this book that the Christian religion must always be not merely one, but the foremost, force in the development of occidental civilization: This narrative, then, is an illustration to the point of the author's belief. The upbuilding of grand Christian civilizations, founded on the conversion of the individual natives, and on the Christian character of the individual settlers, in the tropical parts of the world, is the great task of the immediate future. What pleasure there may be in this labor of love the author has tried to indicate in these pages.
