PREFACE

the "Encyclopedia of Missions;" the "Seoul Independent;" the "Korean Repository."

In one respect, however, this book will be observed to differ from all the other volumes upon Korea that have preceded it, and that is in the proportion of its pages devoted to a presentation of the missionary work of the land. Here it will be found that the work has been traced historically from its beginnings, its many-sided development fully portrayed, with a chapter at the close on that glorious, evangelistic, forward movement now in progress in the country, the spread of which continually reminds the workers on the field that in a very peculiar manner they are "laborers together with God."
