Chapter Summary

In what ways did missionary work and male self-making coincide during the late nineteenth century? What new insights can be gained from this study? This book has given ample evidence of the omnipresence, but also to the fact that it was a contested sight, of the theme of social advance among these workers. In what ways has missionary self-making, and the kind of manhood it produced, been preserved among these missions? It lies beyond the parameters of this study to give any definitive answers concerning manhood as it emerged in Pentecostal and/or fundamentalist missions. The available studies of masculinity among groups of Pentecostals demonstrate the importance of this field of study. This book contributes to our understanding of the gender dynamics that was to be found among the men and the women who paved the way for this today rapidly growing branch of Christianity.

Keywords: Christianity; late nineteenth century; manhood; masculinity; missionary self-making
