Mann, Walter. Christianity in China: An Exposure of Foreign Missions (Issued by the Secular Society, Ltd.). London: The Pioneer Press, 1927. First edition. pp. 62. 12mo. Stapled card covers. Light age-toning, some spotting to covers, contents clean and unmarked; very good+. A remarkable booklet circulated by The Secular Society deeply critical of the Christian missionary movement. “The Missionary movement for the conversion of the heathen owes its origin to the once widely-held, almost universal belief, that all the heathen and unbelievers in Christianity were destined to expiate their unbelief in an eternity of excruciating pain; therefore it was the duty of every Christian to do his utmost to pluck these brands from the burning, for the glory of God and the confusion of the devil, who was regarded as the direct author and instigator of these heathen superstitions. Now that the fires of hell have died down, and all educated people have ceased to believe in this monstrous dogma – worse than anything taught by the most savage witch-doctor – the missions base their appeal for support upon their alleged success as a civilizing agency.” Stapled Wraps.
