Historic Sketches of the Pioneer Work and the Missionary, Educational and Benevolent Agencies of the Presbyterian Church in Canada (Classic Reprint) by Presbyterian Church in Canada (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Historic Sketches of the Pioneer Work and the Missionary, Educational and Benevolent Agencies of the Presbyterian Church in Canada These sketches are designed to present in concise and useful form the chief data concerning the rise and progress of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, and of the various agencies through which her work is being done. The space at the disposal of the Editing Committee is so limited that there has been very sparing use of stirring incidents whose narration would have brightened many pages. Being tied down to a brief statement of facts, they have striven to secure such reliable information as will certainly be acceptable to those who are already interested in the efforts of our Church. It may be hoped also that the sketches may arouse a more widespread interest amongst our members, adherents and young people. In that hope this little volume is sent on its way, and dedicated to the many thousands of our Presbyterian people, old and young, who joined so heartily in setting up the Twentieth Century Memorial Fund, which testifies that Hitherto hath the Lord helped us, and which, under His blessing, shall be a potent instrument in consolidating and expanding the work which our Church is doing for Him, both in our own and in other lands.
