Event description: 

Christian missionaries have employed diverse methods to carry out the Great Commission in the millennia since Jesus’ disciples were instructed to “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…” This exhibit draws on the holdings of the Divinity Library’s Day Missions Collection to illustrate methods of spreading the Christian message through evangelization, educational work, medical work, public health activities, relief work, translation, and literature distribution. Images and documents show how boats, tents, gyroscopes, parades, puppets, dental clinics, model villages, printing presses, artwork, and tracts all played roles in spreading the “good news.”
The exhibit will be housed in three cases throughout the Divinity Library. Exhibit will be accessible during open hours of the Divinity Library.
