The Columbans In The Philippines (1929-1950)

A book review by Fr John Schumacher SJ

Jesuit Fr Schumacher is a well-known historian of Philippine Church affairs. He has taken time out to do a review of the book: The Columbans in the Philippines (Vol. 1). It is a book which shows the extraordinary effect a small group of highly motivated missionaries can have, a book which gives encouragement to young Filipino missionaries setting out on the same task now to another countries.
