Book Description: Helen Barrett Montgomery was a prominent member of the women's ecumenical movement of the early twentieth century. With a degree in classics from Wellesley College, Montgomery was a knowledgeable and compelling speaker, author, and teacher of Bible classes containing as many as 250 women. The Bible and Missions is Montgomery's second contribution to a series of instructional materials by women and for women. It presented her many years of thought on the significance of women and missions to Protestant culture. The useful new introduction locates Montgomery's thought in historical context and makes clear what a force she was in her time.
