Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
New Zealanders know Samuel Marsden as the founder of the CMS missions that brought Christianity (and perhaps sheep) to New Zealand. Australians know him as 'the flogging parson' who established large landholdings and was dismissed from his position as magistrate for exceeding his jurisdiction. English readers know of Marsden for his key role in the history of missions and empire. In this major biography spanning research, and the subject's life, across England, New South Wales and New Zealand, Andrew Sharp tells the story of Marsden's life from the inside. Sharp focuses on revealing to modern readers the powerful evangelical lens through which Marsden understood the world. By diving deeply into key moments - the voyage out, the disputes with Macquarie, the founding of missions - Sharp gets us to reimagine the world as Marsden saw it: always under threat from the Prince of Darkness, in need of 'a bold reprover of vice', a world written in the words of the King James Bible. Andrew Sharp takes us back into the nineteenth-century world, and an evangelical mind, to reveal the past as truly a foreign country.* A major new biography of the leading evangelist to New Zealand, Samuel Marsden, and the struggles with 'the world, the flesh and the devil' that he spent his life pursuing* This book is the result of many years' archival research and presents fresh insights on a well-known but little-understood figure in New Zealand history* Suitable for readers of history, both in New Zealand and abroad-particularly in Australia, where Marsden spent many years which are covered extensively in this book.
