Editorial Reviews

Review

“A significant contribution to scholarship and the mission history of this era. The work will be important to those interested in comparative mission history, early modern East Asia, and the rise of the international LDS church.”—Greg Gubler, Brigham Young University, Hawaii
 



“In the midst of increasing interest in missionary history, the early growth of the Mormon Church, and the internationalization of American religious traditions, this engaging study provides insight into the first attempts to spread LDS beliefs to Japan in the early twentieth century. An important and rich contribution to our understanding of Christian missionary history.”—Laurie F. Maffly-Kipp, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
 



"An excellent and most interesting book.... Neilson's book is important. The reader gets the opportunity to interact with a fine mind as the writer wrestles with causal factors [of the low level of success of LDS missionaries in Japan.]"—Utah Historical Quarterly



"Neilson has created one of the few LDS books dealing with Mormon missiology. This book will be of real value to historians who are looking for a solid model of how to study the inner workings of early Mormon missionary work. It may also serve as a beacon to light the path to improving missionary work in foreign lands today."—BYU Studies Quarterly


 "Neilson's achievement in reaching beyond Mormon studies to consider an under-explored episode in Mormon missions history in its broader American hsitorical context is a significant contribution to the field. His narrative is certain to provide non-Mormon scholars with a better understanding of Mormon missionary experience and, in so doing, deepen their understanding of American missionary experience."
—Nova Religio
