Published Online: 2014-02-13 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/perc-2013-0006

ABSTRACT

Charles Freer Andrews is one of the outstanding personalities in the history of Christian missions in India. The description of his portrait and missionary activity is not an easy task, especially because of his involvement in the nationalistic movement in India. Andrews was a revolutionary primarily in the area of missions. He applied some missionary principles which are widely accepted today, but were hardly understood in his time. It is not the purpose of this study to give a biography of Charles Freer Andrews. There are a number of biographical works that deal with it. This study gives only a short account of his biography in terms of dates, places and events. It is the purpose of this study to reflect on Andrews’ work in India and for India as well as on how his contemporaries and later critics evaluated his philosophy, activity, and achievements.

KEYWORDS: Mission; Indian Nationalistic Movement; Catalyst of reconciliation; Christian dialogue with other religions; Incarnational Ministry
