Excerpt from The Blue Book of Missions for 1907 The Blue Book of Missions for 1905 was a tentative rather than a complete fulfilment of a purpose. Its publication brought assurances from many quarters that a Year Book of Missions can satisfy a real need in the United States and will be welcomed in many other lands. The issue for 1907, then, has been prepared on the same lines as the previous issue. The Mission statistics throughout, including the statistical tables at. the end of the book, have been brought up to date. The directory of Missionary Societies has been revised by the officers of the Societies concerned, and is more complete as well as more accurate than in the last edition. Some articles found of little value have been omitted from the third section of the book; the list, of important missionary literature has been rewritten, and a memorandum of Bible versions has been added. A careful survey of missionary progress in the world-wide field has been inserted at the end of the first section for the better comprehension of the meaning of the changes in different fields. The tes on the countries in which lie the mission fields are limited to territory that is beyond the bounds of Christendom, and, therefore, less kwn. They are primarily intended to supply in small compass helps to realizing the remarkable success of missions among different races, the steady progress of the kingdom, and the extent of the regions yet remaining to be possessed by our Lord Jesus Christ.
