The Moravian Church and the Missionary Awakening in England, 1760-1800

The example of the International Moravian Church profoundly influenced the thinking of evangelicals from various denominations in England, as they prepared to launch foreign missions of their own. Themes anticipating nineteenth-century preoccupations include the doctrine of mission, relations between Church and State, some consequences of slavery in the Caribbean, and the association in Western minds of conversion to Christianity with trade and civilisation.
