Excerpt

The series of conventions, of which the one here reported is the sixth, constitutes one of the agencies employed by the Student Volunteer Movement for Foreign Missions. The purpose of these gatherings is to bring together carefully selected delegations of Students and professors from the important institutions of the United States and Canada, and the leaders of the missionary enterprise, both at home and abroad, to consider the great problem of the evangelization of the world and unitedly to resolve to undertake, in His strength, greater things for the extension of the Kingdom of Christ. A fuller statement concerning the Student Volunteer Movement is found on pages 17 to 36 of this volume, to which the reader is referred.

In the present volume the addresses are reported substantially as they were uttered, though with such emendations by the speakers and by the editor as seemed necessary in the interest of clearness and profitable abridgment. Condensation has been somewhat more conspicuous in the case of the afternoon sectional conferences. The introductory statements of the chairmen of the various meetings and the prayers offered are omitted, as being of only temporary interest. The denominational rallies are unreported for obvious reasons.

To render the volume as helpful as possible as a book of reference, a list of the books, which were shown in the Exhibit are printed in Appendix C. In order to make the contents easily accessible, a full index has been added.

Thanks are due to Mr. Robert J. Cole for editing the manuscript of the Report; to Mr. G. Mercer Adam for correcting the final proofs; and to Miss Helena M. Fulton for compiling the list of Sailed Student Volunteers in Appendix A, the Honor Roll on pages 501 and 502, and the table of gifts for missions in Appendix B.

FENNELL P. TURNER, General Secretary.
