Sinossi

Written just 40 years after David Livingstone’s death, this admiring account of the famous missionary’s life and work takes us deep into the “dark continent” of 19th-century Africa, where he labored to bring “Christianity, commerce, and civilization.” A national hero in Victorian Britain, Livingstone earned fame as an explorer and scientific investigator, an antislavery crusader, and imperial reformer, as well as in the role of a Protestant missionary and martyr who eventually died in Africa of malaria.

From the book: “In those forty years great and astounding changes have been witnessed in the Continent which is associated with his fame….But nothing that has happened since has diminished by a single laurel the wreath he won, and will wear for ever….Livingstone is greatest, not as a scientist, nor an explorer, but as a man and a missionary.”

Charles Silvester Horne (1865–1914) studied theology at Mansfield College, Oxford, became a well-known Congregationalist minister, and additionally served as a member of the British parliament for Ipswich, England.
