Publisher Description

William Carey (1761-1834) is known as the "father of modern missions". He was a British Christian missionary, Particular Baptist minister, translator, social reformer and cultural anthropologist who founded the first degree-awarding university in India. After he was forced to leave the British Indian territory by non-Baptist Christian missionaries, he joined the Baptist missionaries in the Danish colony in Serampore. One of his first contributions was to start schools for impoverished children where they were taught reading, writing, accounting and Christianity. He opened the first theological university in Serampore offering divinity degrees, and campaigned to end the practice of sati.
