The 19th century has been described as the "Great Century" of Protestant missions, when the Gospel was sent to more people than ever before. The Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America was an active participant in this expansion, bringing Christian teachings to four continents.

Presbyterian mission work in Africa began in 1833 and throughout the century expanded to several areas of the continent, including Liberia, Spanish Guinea, Corsico, Ogowe, Gabon and the Cameroon.

Christian missionaries directed their attention to unexplored regions; their activities had an impact on the political, economic, educational and social reforms of many countries. The spreading of medical knowledge, the building of hospitals, missionary

schools, the promotion of Western learning, history and international law were some of the examples.

Evangelism in Africa: Correspondence of the Board of Foreign Missions, 1835-1910 supports research in religious studies, African studies, women's studies, international affairs and anthropology. Letters that served as reports from the field describe the indigenous peoples and cultures, tribal factionalism, cultural differences and mores, and the many problems and achievements of the work.
