The great heroes and heroines whose story is told in this book have run across the centuries over the world to us. Some of them are alive today, as heroic as those who have gone. But all of them say the same thing to us of the new world who are coming after them: "Take the torch." The greatest of them all, when he came to the very end of his days, as he fell and passed on the torch to others, said, "I have run my course." But to us who are coming on as torch-bearers after him he spoke in urgent words -- written to the people at Corinth where the Isthmian races were run: "Do you not know that they which run in a race all run, but one wins the prize? So run, that ye may be victors."--Prologue

Young Islam on trek by Basil Mathews( Book )

Written by a Protestant missionary soon after Ataturk's takeover of Turkey. Mathews discusses recent political developments in Turkey, Egypt, India, and so forth, with respect to the enduring religious hold of Islam. He sees little to redeem the religion even though he sees potential in the people themselves. However, Mathews is also unimpressed with the cultural offerings of the West; while he sees Christianity as vital, he also perceives contemporary European culture as dissipated and sinful, and thus he argues that Christian missionaries should not attempt to actually replace local cultural practices with European ones
