A new and expansive official history of the USPG commissioned to mark the tercentenary in 2001. The first half tells a compelling global story from the mission to the Americas in the 18th century, through the North China Mission in the late 19th century to today's Social Development Programme in Bangladesh. There is a particular focus on the post-1945 period of decolonization, development and dialogue with other religions. The second half is a collection of essays that give a wide range of themes and perspective from a history of missionary wives by Deborah Kirkwood to a discussion of the evolving role of the church in Zambia by Musonda Mwamba.Three Centuries of Mission emphasizes the key instrumentality of the USPG in the emergence of a worldwide network of Churches in the Anglican Communion and their significance in the world at the beginning of the new century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reviewed in the International Bulletin of Missionary Research
Highlights: "Not to be pigeonholed as an institutional history, this volume is a multi-layered essay on the relationships of mission, Western empires, and American, African, and Asian Christianity .[a] masterly account a thought-provoking study Anyone seriously interested in the missionary movement from the West should explore it."
"This exceedingly well-planned and well-written book provides fascinating accounts of how the first specifically mission organization of the Church of England responsed to the dual task of serving white colonialists in the British Empire as well as forming missions among the indigenous peoples of America, Australia, Africa, South Asia, and beyond."
James A. Bergquist, Missiology: An International Review, April 2002
