The Philippines and the Far East (Classic Reprint)
It has been laid upon me to write this book. After eight years experience among similar social conditions in British India, and more than two years residence in the Philippines, it came to me as a duty to set down in order the things which American voters and American Christians ought to know for their guidance in helping shape the policies of our nation, and furnishing the support for our Missionary Societies in the work God has appointed each to do among these people.
Such readers as but dimly comprehend the essential divineness of 'the powers that be' will be puzzled to know why so much space has been given to matters which they would denominate purely political. This will cause 110 confusion, however, to those who believe that God works through nations as well as through His Church tor the establishment of the kingdom of righteousness. Because I firmly believe that our army and navy, our governor, the Commission, the judges, the constabulary, and the schoolteachers, and all who toil with them have a divinely-allotted part in Christ's program for the Filipino people. I have tried to set forth some of the work which they are trying to do. Here are nearly eight million people emerging from the twilight of a belated civilization into the high noon of modern life.
