Arthur Douglas, Missionary on Lake Nyasa: The Story of His Life

Universities’ Mission to Central Africa, 1920


On November 10, 1911, Arthur Douglas, a missionary working in Africa on the island of Likoma, was murdered. This volume tells the story of his life, and of his martyrdom. It is largely a collection of Douglas’ letters, supplanted by recollections and stories from Douglas’ friends, family, and fellow missionaries. The two golden threads which run through his whole career are dutifulness and prayerfulness. Along with the inspiring story of Douglas’ life and work, this volume contains numerous illustrations and photographs.
