'It is good that Timothy Yates's excellent review of modern mission ... is now available in paperback. Timothy Yates shows that he possesses the rare gifts of encyclopaedic knowledge of the relevant material and the ability to discern its significance and patterns. Well written, and what is most impressive is Dr Yates's ability to write a review which teems with facts and insights without overwhelming or boring the reader.' The Expository Times 'It takes great skill and self-discipline to deal with a vast subject succinctly, to master its literature, condense its history and offer lightning sketches of key personalities in an act of compression that avoids distortion ... Timothy Yates brings it off triumphantly, and in interesting prose as well. This book is a very good read.' Colin Morris, Church Times 'A superbly readable digest of twentieth century missiological themes and movements, together with an engaging account of the formative persons most closely linked to them ... Christian Mission in the Twentieth Century can safely be placed in the hands of beginning students.' International Bulletin of Missionary Research 'Masterly ... This book ought to become a standard textbook for courses in missiology.' Gospel and Culture '... a very helpful reference work'. Themelois Volume 23:1
