Presentation Abstract

Scottish missions have played a pivotal role in missionary history in the continents of Asia and Africa establishing educational and medical institutions where the Scriptures could be taught. Through these institutions the influence of the Bible brought transformation to these societies with legacies that are enduring to this day. Unfortunately, however, this unforgettable period of mission history passed and all we are left with are its memories. This paper seeks to explore the essential qualities that gave vitality and impetus to this phenomenon, what made this experience unique among others, how did the Bible and their understanding of it contribute to their success, and what lessons they have for contemporary missions as they are conducted today.
