"The history of Methodism in the West Indies is a fascinating study of the witness especially of lay people as they went from island to island. In this book, a missionary serving in Grenada traces the story of the growth of the Church in that one island but its story is one that could be repeated from almost every part of the West Indies, a story of inspired leadership and sacrificial service in a place often thought of as a romantic and remote outpost of our Church."--Front flap.
