Opening in Bombay in the 1890s, this book conveys vivid pen pictures of India, the cities, the villages, the interiors of Indian homes, rich and poor, the landscapes, the monsoons, the magnificent durbar during the Prince of Wales' visit, the Christian missionaries, and the warm-hearted Indian people. David MacArd, an American multi-millionaire, struck by the poverty and squalor of India, resolves to found a great theological school to train young men to go out as Christian missionaries. MacArd's son, David, goes to India himself to work directly for God there. David's son Theodore, not content with the usual work of a missionary, goes out to live in a mud-wall village among the poor. Each man comes one step nearer to the final achievement of spiritual success.
