A History of the Melanesian Mission, 1849-1942eBook - 2011
David Hilliard's God's Gentlemen, originally published in 1978, remains the only detached and detailed historical analysis of the work of the Melanesian Mission. Starting with its New Zealand beginnings and its Norfolk Island years, the book follows the Mission's shift of headquarters to the Solomon Islands through the beginning of WWII. Based on a wide range of sources, God's Gentleman is the inner history of the slow growth of an important and genuinely Melanesian church.
