Paul Sedra has just published a new book entitled From Mission to Modernity: Evangelicals, Reformers and Education in Nineteenth-Century Egypt.
From reviewer Gregory Starrett; “In describing nearly a century of interactions between Protestant missionaries and Egypt’s indigenous Coptic community, Paul Sedra’s new book deepens our understanding of the subtle ways missionization helped transform Egyptian society through processes of “cultural conversion” even in the absence of significant religious conversion.” Learn more about Dr. Sedra’s work and research here.
