My major complaint is that while it is supposed to be a history of Christian missions, the vast majority covered is Western and Protestant in scope.

Because of this, only the first 50 pages covers the first years of missions history, with little coverage of missions by Eastern churches at any time/5. The history of Christian missions is a fascinating and multifaceted topic, and Stephen Neill does a decent job of distilling it in his book.

Given that from the issuing of the Great Commission to the present, Christian missions have had nearly two millennia to spread throughout the globe, a comprehensive study would take several by: – First Christians are reported in Monaco, Algeria; a missionary goes to Arbela, a sacred city of the Assyrians that the Christian church is katholikos ("universal"); – Pliny the Younger reports rapid growth of Christianity in Bithynia – Hermas writes: "The Son of God has been preached to the ends of the earth"; – Gospel reaches Portugal and Morocco.
