Abstract

This lecture in the Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge, in 2012, commemorated the bicentenary of the death of Henry Martyn. I began with expounding two portraits of Martyn before considering: first, his life in India and Persia; second, his influence on converts, writers, and missionaries; and third, his legacy in the scholarly study of mission, dialogue and world Christianity today; before concluding with his challenge to vocations for our age.
