Western missionaries working in the desolate backwaters of pre-modern China fit this description. In this book scholars from different backgrounds discuss and define various aspects, special characteristics and long-range aims of the Christian apostolate in late Qing and early republican China.

Some Observations on Missionary Cases by Prof. Dr. Ku Wei-ying (National Taiwan University), Body and Soul. Professional Health Care in the Catholic Missions in China between 1920 and 1940 by Dr. Dries Vanysacker (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) and Quelques echos des pretres chinois dans les missions de Scheut by Prof. Dr. Francoise Aubin (Centre National de Recherche Scientifique).
